Headline dates to precede support tour with The Wildhearts

 unnamed (26)


Scots Rockers, THE AMORETTES, who recently enjoyed UK Top 40 success with their new album, Born To Break, will bring 2018 to a close with a short headline tour around the UK.

“We were on hold for a couple of fantastic support tours across the UK and Europe, which unfortunately didn’t come together.”, explains guitarist/Singer/Songwriter, Gill Montgomery. “However, rather than wait until 2019, we really wanted to get out on the road again.”

The UK dates begin on 21 November, and run straight into the band’s headline slot at Sheffield’s Winter Rocks Festival, alongside Skindred, Wayward Sons, and Stone Broken, amongst others, and are rounded out by their final dates of the year in support of the Legendary, The Wildhearts.

“Because our fans have been asking for a headline tour, we felt that it would be unfair to hold off until 2019.”, continues Montgomery. “So, although this is quite short notice, we’re really excited to get back out and play live. We’ve had such a great reception to Born To Break, and it’s all down to our fans for buying the album, and coming out to support us when we play live. We really hope to see all of you at the shows, and we promise that these shows will be very special indeed.”

The Top 40 UK Album, Born To Break, is available vis SPV/Steamhammer:

Whilst today’s popular music world seems to be based around the idea of “style over substance”, Scottish Hard Rock Trio, THE AMORETTES, have a very simple plan; Taking over the world, one show at a time!

No fuss! No gimmicks! Just good, old-fashioned hard work, and great songs.  Anyone who’s ever experienced an AMORETTES live show can easily testify to the buzz of expectation that kicks in as soon the lights go down, and the intro rolls. Never has the Slade track, We’ll bring the house down been so prophetic in its meaning.  The roar from the crowd builds expectation from the very start, and the energy and intensity doesn’t let up until we reach the end together. Witness the audience sing-a-long during the anthemic set closer, Hot And Heavy, a track always pre-empted by vocalist/guitarist, Gill Montgomery asking the sweat soaked audience, “Is Everybody Hot? Do You Like It HEAVYYY?”
Relentless touring across the UK and Europe has helped turn THE AMORETTESinto a lean, mean, Rock and Roll machine, leading them to be described as “Like Airbourne fronted by Joan Jett”. Reviews for both live shows, and the albums, only reinforce the fact that THE AMORETTES star is still very much in ascendance, and, as long as there are stages to play, and records to make, there is no sign of this “Female Motorhead” attempting to take the easy road to the top.
