HRH-approved Scottish rockers The Amorettes have 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,” said 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,” added bass player Heather McKay.
And drummer Hannah McKay echoed her bandmates when she added: “To be on the same label as an icon like Lita Ford, and so many other fantastic bands is unreal. We are really looking forward to working together with SPV to take our music further afield.”
A heavy touring schedule with the likes of Thunder, Black Star Riders, Europe, Danko Jones, Ash, Airbourne, The Dead Daisies, Black Stone Cherry – coupled with festival appearances including HRH, Download, T-In The Park, Rock And Blues, Steelhouse, Bloodstock, Planet Rockstock, Hard Rock Hell, Wildfest and Nordic Noise – has enabled The Amorettes to build a strong and loyal fan base across the UK, Europe, and further afield.
“I always have an affinity for girl bands like Rock Goddess and Girlschool from the UK, or Vixen and Phantom Blue from the USA,” said 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,” added Montgomery. “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 their Chris Tsangarides produced album Game On. The acclaimed Off Yer Rocka Recordings follow-up, White Hot Heat, was produced by Luke Morley of Thunder, engineered by Nick Brine (Coldplay, Ash, Snow Patrol, Bruce Springsteen, The Darkness, and more), and mastered by Pete Maher (U2, The Rolling Stones).
