The Amazons

New album, tour and single announcement from The Amazons

Premiered on Clara Amfo’s Radio 1 show, The Amazons release their anthemic new single ‘How Will I Know?’. The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album How Will I Know If Heaven Will Find Me? – out September 9th 2022 on Fiction Records. 

Written while lead singer Matt Thomson and his girlfriend were torn apart for the best part of seven months during the pandemic, the album’s opener, ‘How Will I Know?’ is a euphoric rock anthem, ready to stun packed venues across the globe.

“This was not only the first song to be written for the record, it was also one of the few to survive 2020 and became the blueprint, lyrically and sonically, for the rest of the album,” Matt said of the track. “‘How Will I Know?’ was mostly created during the seven months I was apart from my girlfriend. I found that the longer we spent apart, the more I started to question. How will I know if I’m going to see this person again? And even if I do, how will I know it’ll be the same as before? After writing the song, I began to wonder if it’s the dreams and beliefs which are challenged that become our strongest.”

How Will I Know If Heaven Will Find Me? is both a love letter and a rallying cry. Expansive, uplifting, sun-drenched singalongs produced by Jim Abbiss (Bombay Bicycle Club, Arctic Monkeys, Adele), and featuring co-writing collaborations with the likes of Maggie Rogers & Jamie Hartman, find the Reading four-piece emerging from the darkness of 2019’s Future Dust full of lust for life and post-pandemic hope.

The boys continue to tour the UK with a string of summer festivals and a huge UK tour in October, which will see the band headline London’s Roundhouse on October 20th. On top of this the band have teamed up with BBC Introducing to curate the supports across their headline run. A great opportunity for grassroots music, the partnership will see the band and BBC Introducing offering emerging acts the chance to step onto the big stage in their hometown.  ‘So many incredible artists emerging in the last couple of years have been deprived of the most fundamental component of music: playing live,’ Matt said of the partnership. ‘We can’t wait to play with some of our favourite discoveries on their own home turf.’ Tickets available HERE.
