The new album hit the Top 5 of the album charts a few weeks ago on its release.
Latest album How Will I Know If Heaven Will Find Me? features the standout single How Will I Know? The track was written by The Amazons lead singer Matt Thomson whilst he and his girlfriend were kept apart by the pandemic for the best part of seven months.
“This was not only the first song to be written for the record, it was also one of the few to survive 2020 and became the blueprint, lyrically and sonically, for the rest of the album,” Matt said of the track. “‘How Will I Know?’ was mostly created during the seven months I was apart from my girlfriend. I found that the longer we spent apart, the more I started to question. How will I know if I’m going to see this person again? And even if I do, how will I know it’ll be the same as before? After writing the song, I began to wonder if it’s the dreams and beliefs which are challenged that become our strongest.”
The Manchester gig marks a return to the venue where The Amazons headlined in an awesome show back in 2019.
The Amazons will be supported at Manchester Academy by The Deep Blue.
