The Amazons launch How Will I Know If Heaven Will Find Me? at Live Nation
It’s been three years since Reading-based rock band the Amazons released their sophomore album. With two Top 10 charting albums under their belt already, they are now getting ready to release their third record, How Will I Know If Heaven Will Find Me?. Ahead of its September launch date, they exclusively previewed several tracks at the new Live Nation HQ in London, as well as speaking candidly about their songwriting process to get here.
It’s clear from the get-go that this new album won’t stray too far from the band’s alternative rock sound. Newly unveiled single Bloodrush was true to form, with its catchy hooks, strong drumline and singalong chorus. The anthemic Ready for Something and Wait for Me followed suit, demonstrating how, thematically, they’ve committed to a very personal lyrical theme. “It’s not another Covid album but it was written in lockdown,” frontman Matt Thomson said, sharing that it explores the forced challenges of a long-distance relationship during a pandemic. It shows a surprisingly softer side, poignantly contrasting with everything else, which is loud and amplified to the max.
After showcasing a different, slightly lighter and poppier song called There’s a Light, the Amazons went back to their roots and ended the preview with 2017 hit Black Magic. There’s no holding back in the instrumentals and it’s clear to see this is a band energised for a new chapter and enjoying every second of performing again. In fact, the performance was definitely too big for the building’s pop-up stage, and they even admitted they’d broken the PA sound system in rehearsals. How Will I Know If Heaven Will Find Me? feels like an album of expansive sound built for arenas and festivals, and this was a promising teaser of what’s yet to come for their fans.
How Do I Know If Heaven Will Find Me is released on 2nd September 2022. For further information and future events visit The Amazons’ website here.
