The Amazons Announce New Album 'Future Dust', Share New Single Doubt It

Tuesday, 09 April 2019 Written by Helen Payne

The Amazons have announced their second album.

‘Future Dust’ is due for release on May 24 via Fiction Records and follows their 2017 self-titled debut. To accompany the announcement, the indie rock band have shared the record’s second cut, after heavier lead single Mother came last month.

Doubt It is a swaggering blues rock track with guitars that echo the lines of the Black Keys, while high pitched backing vocals evoke something along the lines of Arctic Monkeys’ R U Mine.

Lead singer Matthew Thomspon noted:

“Doubt It is about being on the edge of making a potentially stupid decision due to lust-induced blindness. It addresses the lingering doubts, the residue of morals and succumbing to the temptations.”

Continuing to discuss the album, he said:

“We were searching for a heavier sound and we found it by delving back through the blues. 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.”

‘Future Dust’ tracklist:

  1. Mother
  2. Fuzzy Tree
  3. 25
  4. The Mire
  5. Doubt It
  6. All Over Town
  7. End Of Wonder
  8. Dark Visions
  9. 25 (Reprise)
  10. Warning Sign
  11. Georgia

The band will headline a homecoming show at Reading University on May 27. They also have sets planned at the Great EscapeRadio 1’s Big WeekendNeighbourhood Weekender, Community FestivalTRNSMT, MTV Plymouth, Reading and Leeds.
