An introduction to the band prior to their 2018 European tour. For 15 Years Amplifier have been that underground UK rock band that have universally prompted the same reaction: "Why aren't these massive?" Over more than 10 albums Amplifier have been compared to ALL of the following by the worlds music press. Led Zepplin, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Tool, Nirvana, Godmachine, The Who, The Verve, Hawkwind, Cardiacs, Rush, Soundgarden. They sound like none of these bands.
Amplifier have always been at a crossroad between underground and mainstream. Initially, they tried their hands at the latter, the self-titled debut and Insider boasting some more radio-friendly material that managed at times to condense their awesomeness into 3-4 tight minutes. Still, dissatisfied with all the corporate environment and its less-to-no interest in sonic substance, the band independently released the massive Octopus, which was more or less a *** you to commercial viability…
Amplifier return with their 6th and most definitive album to date - the epic "Trippin' With Dr Faustus". Chiselled out between 2014-2016, the album instantly delivers the Amplifier twin calling cards of Massive Riffs with lyrical sentiments that go beyond space/time and the limitations of ones, zeros and polycarbonate manufacturing. The story of Faust is more relevant than ever in the 21st century. "Trippin' With Dr Faustus" is released on Rockosmos on 30th June 2017.
