Scottish rock act The Amorettes announced that the band has signed a worldwide record deal with German label SPV/Steamhammer and will release their new album early in 2018.
"This is great news for The Amorettes," says guitarist/vocalist, Gill Montgomery. "SPV have a tremendous reputation for supporting their artists, so this move makes so much sense."
"This is the next big step for the band, and we can't wait to see what the future holds with SPV," says Bass player, Heather McKay. "To be on the same label as an icon like Lita Ford, and so many other fantastic bands is unreal." continues Drummer, Hannah McKay. "We are really looking forward to working together with SPV to take our music further afield."
Over the last couple of years, a heavy touring schedule with the likes of Thunder, Black Star Riders, Europe, Danko Jones, Ash, Airbourne, The Dead Daisies, Black Stone Cherry and festival appearances including Download, T-In The Park, Rock And Blues, Steelhouse, Bloodstock, Planet Rockstock, Hard Rock Hell, Wildfest, Nordic Noise and more, has enabled The Amorettes to build a strong and loyal fan base across the UK, Europe, and further afield.
This work ethic of "One gig at a time", and "take it to the people" brought The Amorettes to the attention of SPV/Steamhammer Records.
"I always have an affinity for girl bands like Rock Goddess and Girlschool from the UK, or Vixen and Phantom Blue from the USA.", says Olly Hahn, head of SPV/Steamhammer, "And that's why I'm really happy that The Amorettes are now part of the Steamhammer family. The band worked hard the last years and I'm sure that with the new album, and the team behind the band, everything will pay off!"
"We can't thank Olly and his team enough for the belief they have in the band," continues Montgomery, "and we look forward to a long and rewarding relationship together. We're really excited by our new album, and can't wait for everyone to hear it."
The Amorettes first exploded on to the International rock scene in early 2015 with the release of the Chris Tsangarides produced album "Game On," followed by an exhaustive touring schedule that took this high-octane power trio all across the UK and Europe. The acclaimed follow-up, "White Hot Heat," was produced by Luke Morley of UK Arena Rock act, Thunder, engineered by Nick Brine (Coldplay, Ash, Snow Patrol, Bruce Springsteen, The Darkness, and more), and mastered by Pete Maher (U2, The Rolling Stones).
