The Amazons Premieres New Song “Ready for Something” on BBC Radio 1
- British rock band The Amazons, consisting of Matt Thomson (vocals/guitar), Chris Alderton (guitar), Elliot Briggs (bass) and Joe Emmett (drums), premiered a new song “Ready for Something” on BBC Radio 1's Future Artists with Jack Saunders.
The song is taken from their upcoming third studio album “How Will I Know If Heaven Will Find Me?”, following “Bloodrush” released back in April.
It was written by Josef Emmett, Elliot James Briggs, Matthew Thomson, Christopher John Alderton, Nick Atkinson, and Edd Holloway.
Produced by Jim Abbiss and Christopher John Alderton.
Matt Thomson told Jack Saunders about the song, “I think last couple of years we've all had. We've all shared experiences pretty similar, I guess, ranging from tragic to mostly on the daily pretty mundane and this song is about being like caged up to cooped up and scratching at the walls and ready to go. And I think for us sonically, we always had that festival at that light at the end of the tunnel in mind. We didn't want to make music for like the quiet lies that we were living. We wanted to make music for that communal experience at the end of the line.”
Chris Alderton added, “I mean, this song has quite a lot in common with black magic and they it's actually very, The Amazons. We all had a like a foot into this song. And that riff sadly, was made by Joe.”
- The new album comprises 16-track and is se to be released on September 2, 2022.
Matt Thomson said of the album, “I like many of us. We wrote it over the last couple of years, and very, very much didn't want to do anything that was about COVID. But what I find really interesting is the endless knock on effects of, off COVID And how that kind of played into our relationships and our daily lives. And for me personally, it was about now navigating a long distance relationship with my partner over those last two years and being away from each other for a long stretches of time like probably longsight seven or eight months. And feeling super powerless. And it's such a powerless situation like such a situation that you can't really affect it's completely out your hands. So what do you do? I mean, all I really know how to do is write songs.”
Chris Alderton said, “I think we've I mean, Matt was obviously like you said in this very delicate situation and but the other three of us in the band and probably Matt as well, we're just so to carry on with your chomping at the bit, chomping at the bit to make something that was like an album that was very interesting from a production point of view, and also managed to tell the story of what Matt's been going through.”
