U.K. rock quartet, Amplifier, has released a music video for “Matmos,” the opening track from the band’s Kscope debut, Echo Street, out April 23. The video is streaming on the Echo Street mini-site at: http://www.kscopemusic.com/amplifier, which also features info, downloads, pre-order links, audio, live dates and a free MP3 of “Matmos.”
Echo Street, the follow-up to The Octopus, Amplifier’s self-released debut which went on to sell over 20,000 copies, was produced by the band’s Sel Balamir and mixed by Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters / Biffy Clyro).
Echo Street also marks the band’s first effort with its revamped four-piece line-up, delivering a subtle shift in style and allowing for a mix of the band’s signature epic space rock jams with accessible pieces boasting three-part vocal harmonies.
“We are extraordinarily pleased with Echo Street,” said vocalist/guitarist, Sel Balamir. “We didn’t think that we could better The Octopus, but I think that Echo Street has a timeless quality about it. It’s probably the Amplifier album that most people will know with time. There’s something really special about it…”
