The Amazons have announced their brand new album ‘Future Dust’.
The band’s second full-length is set to drop on 24th May via Fiction, and have previewed it with another new track, ‘Doubt It’.
Lead singer Matthew Thomson explains: “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.”
The track debuted as Hottest Record on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show this evening (8th April), and you can check it out below.
It follows up on the first track from the record, ‘Mother’, which arrived earlier this year.
Speaking to Dork about ‘Future Dust’ for our new 2019 Festival Guide, Thomson reveals: “The first record felt like the end of something, but this album felt like something we needed to get over.
“It’s the start of a journey in terms of the band and us creatively, as a four piece and individually. We had to push through and set the direction of what we wanted to do. It feels like a beginning.”
