Just after the release of their new album, The Amazons play at New Slang.
Following on from their incredible 2017 self-titled debut full length, the band are back with their second offering of huge rock 'n' roll tunes with plenty of riffs in the form of Future Dust. We're super excited to hear the new album and their return to New Slang.
“We were searching for a heavier sound and we found it by delving back through the blues,” says singer Matthew Thomson. “From Led Zeppelin, we discovered Howlin’ Wolf and immersed ourselves in his back catalogue. I read Hellfire, the Jerry Lee Lewis biography, and fell in love with the Biblical language that was used to describe his ‘devil music’.
“As much as the songs, it was the stories and characters that we loved. Playing boogie-woogie piano in murky clubs sounds pretty tame now, but back then, it was raw and dangerous. We wanted to capture that with a dirtier, grittier, sexier sound.”
Times TBC but we expect doors at 9:00pm with The Amazons on at 10:30pm.
After the show, it's New Slang as usual where you can expect to hear the likes of Wolf Alice, Circa Waves, Biffy Clyro, The Vaccines, Arctic Monkeys, Catfish & The Bottlemen and many more until 2AM.
CD/ticket is £14 post-paid, and other formats and combos will be available.
New Slang is an over 18s event, and is strict on ID. Please bring photo ID with you on the night, whatever age you are.
New Slang is held at Pryzm, 154 Clarence St, Kingston upon Thames KT1 1QP
