Rock and roll reprobates The Amorettes are inviting fans to join the party in 2017 – and join in with some White Russian Roulette.
The Scottish trio will hit the road again in March as special guests of Black Star Riders.
And to keep the pot boiling the band has filmed a brand new video for White Russian Roulette, releasing the riotous track as a single.
“White Russian Roulette is a phrase we (like to think) coined back in our early days,” said guitarist/vocalist Gill Montgomery. “We liked to observe the social carnage of a small town club where people would drink – probably more than they should – and then, more often than not, do things they would regret as a result.”
Taken from the acclaimed album, White Hot Heat, the raucous White Russian Roulette was again written by the band’s songwriter Montgomery with a co-writing credit going to Thunder’s Luke Morley – who also produced the album.
“I started writing this song in our dressing room, somewhere on tour,” added Montgomery. “It was pretty much complete but probably a bit darker in its content – maybe due in part to a bit of a hangover.
“When it came to the pre-production for the album we just felt that it needed to lift the mood slightly. So Luke and I worked together and made a few adjustments which resulted in it being a bit more upbeat but without losing its message.”
But how do you play White Russian Roulette?
“The title refers to this gamble that you take with every sip,” added Montgomery. “Sometimes we would join in and with White Russians being our drink of choice at the time, you can imagine that the rest is a very blurry history.”
So as The Amorettes prepare for another year of consistent touring, and with rock n roll considered to be the new religion, what is the message that people should people take from the song?
“That’s easy,” added Gill. “Always drink responsibly! And turn this up loud!!”
