- The Amazons -
2stadium-ready anthems...armed with raw and youthful indie-rock" - NME
With sold out shows across the globe and two top-10 UK albums under their belts, The Amazons claimed their highest ever chart position with their third album 'How Will I Know if Heaven Will Find Me?' in September 2022. Since their inception in 2014 and release of their debut album in 2017, the Reading-based trio have continued to prove that they are one of the most exciting bands that this country has produced. Both a love letter and a rallying cry How Will I Know if Heaven Will Find Me? is an expansive, uplifting, sun-drenched collection of singalongs produced by Jum Abbiss (Bombay Bicycle Club, Arctic Monkeys, Adele).
The band closed off 2022 with an extensive UK and European Tour, including a sold out show at London's Roundhouse. Coming into 2023 they headed out on their first ever US headline tour, including an appearance at the prestigious Governors Ball, NYC. Since then they've taken festivals by storm, with performances at some of the UK and Europe's biggest events including NOS Alive, TRNSMT, Mad Cool, and Hurricane and Southside, all leading up to their recent main stage debut at Reading & Leeds Festival!
The band now return to the Reading Uni stage following their last performance here in May 2019.
