Listen :: Amber Run return with tour and album news - plus new single
Words: Ellie Ward
Amber Run, the Nottingham four-piece, return with a bag of new stuff including brand new track, 'Stranger'.
The video, below, directed by William Jones for the song, has already had almost 17K views at the present time in just 24 hours, which is some measure of the band's appeal and fan base.
Also announced is the follow-up album to last year's '5AM'. The 12-track 'For A Moment, I Was Lost' is set for release early next year to coincide with a February UK tour. Scroll down for dates.
'Stranger' say the band, "is about being hopeful. The thought that sometimes you don’t get what you need but you’ll keep moving on regardless. At it’s root, 'Stranger' is about how it’s worth suffering for your art."
Speaking about the album the band had to say “We have always believed in evolution as a band. Not reinvention so much as taking what's already there and making it better. As students in Nottingham, we would sit and say “we’ll be the band we want to be by the 4th album”. Somewhere along the way, we forgot that evolution takes time. We forgot that any new experience has a learning curve.
“The new album trims the fat from our previous music, and get down to the bare bones of the songs. We’re songwriters, and where 5AM was a collection of songs written in our youth, these new songs are, for us, a timely response to more recent experiences."
