The Amazons Have Some 'Surprises' Up Their Sleeves For Their Debut Album
The Reading rockers talks their forthcoming debut LP plus nearly chopping off Chris' finger on tour...
Having won over their hometown at Reading Festival, The Amazons are eyeing world domination and festival headliner status. And they could do it, which is why the 'In My Mind' rockers are among our ten Brand New For 2017 nominees of acts we think you need to pay attention to this year.

The van in question is their beloved 'Big Suze'. "It had mould on it when we bought it but in the inside," they admitted. One of them even found a "hairy" piece of bacon in it.
"She's definitely not very safe but we love her," Matt said. "We got completely swindled there."
"Help us please," Elliott pleaded. And you can...
