The Amazons

The Amazons

Details

U.K. rock quartet The Amazons formed in 2014. Playing an arena-sized brand of indie that combines the grandeur of Arcade Fire with the muscle of Nirvana, the Amazons crafted catchy, melodic anthems built for singalongs. At the time of their formation, vocalist Matt Thomson, guitarist Chris Alderton, and bassist Elliot Briggs were already in a group together, but when they recruited Josef "Joe" Emmet -- who is also a bassist -- on drums, the Reading band was born. Building a grassroots following in their local scene, Thomson, then working at a supermarket, would slip demo CDs into shoppers' baskets. Their debut EP, 2015's Don't You Wanna, was produced by Catherine Marks, who'd previously worked with Wolf Alice and White Lies. It included the insistent rocker "Ultraviolet" and the crunching "Junk Food Forever." Even though they only had one EP under their belts, the Amazons were brought on a short European tour with the Kooks, which helped expose them to a wider audience. In March 2016, they released the urgent single "Stay with Me," and their eponymous debut album followed in May.

We’re putting on a charity show at the Brudenell Social Club on the 26th September.

We were recently contacted by the family of a fan called Joe Glew. Joe had been diagnosed with terminal leukaemia, and we’d planned on putting a show on to raise money for Joe’s bucket list.

We were regrettably informed that by the time we went to announce the show, Joe had tragically passed away - much sooner than expected. He was 20 years old.

With the family’s blessing, we are continuing with the show and donating the proceeds to a very special cause, one that is close to both The Amazons and Joe’s family.

Tickets on sale immediately now!
