THE AMAZONS Announce Their Anthem-Filled New Album How Will I Know If Heaven Will Find Me? Out September 9th 2022 on Fiction Records September Instore & October UK Headline Tour




Following two huge Top 10 records and sold out shows across the globe, one of the UK’s most exciting bands, The Amazons, have announced their stratospheric, anthem-packed new album How Will I Know If Heaven Will Find Me? – out September 9th 2022 on Fiction Records.

The third record is both a love letter and a rallying cry. Expansive, uplifting, sun-drenched singalongs produced by Jim Abbiss (Arcade Fire, Arctic Monkeys, Adele), and featuring co-writing collaborations with the likes of Maggie Rogers & Jamie Hartmann, find the Reading 4-piece emerging from the darkness of 2019’s Future Dust full of lust for life and post-pandemic hope.

Locked down in Brighton, in the case of a newly-moved Matt – a mere week after returning from a US tour, The Amazons thought they had their third album already half written. But the prolonged lockdown proved otherwise. After months of seeing his L.A.-based girlfriend only online, Matt started writing songs for her which he assumed only the pair of them would ever hear.

“The gap between us was no longer being bridged by WhatsApps and Facetimes,” he says. “I sent letters but that didn’t do it either. We felt further apart than ever. Writing songs about what we’d do when we were together again became my way of taking control of the situation. It allowed me to share something truly intimate. Writing songs is how I process life. It’s the best skill I have and being able to use it to fix a problem gave me purpose again.”

In late 2020, with the band already cooling on the music they had previously written, Matt sent his bare bones new songs, written alone at home on acoustic guitar, to his band mates to gauge their opinion. Straight away they knew that he had inadvertently discovered a new direction for The Amazons.

“I said to the boys, enough with the darkness. As cheesy as it sounds, I wanted to make music that was a force for good, after everything we’ve all been through. It’s easily our most joyous album – sonically we set out to celebrate the return of real life and the communal experience of being back at shows.”



The Amazons are a band unleashed and How Will I Know If Heaven Will Find Me? is a fresh marker in the sand. A new chapter. The start of something very special.
