Coinciding with this news, the band have also shared the brand new single Doubt It, on which lead singer Matthew Thomson comments:
Doubt It is about being on the edge of making a potentially stupid decision due to lust-induced blindness. It addresses the lingering doubts, the residue of morals and succumbing to the temptations

Future Dust features blues grooves, religious references and falsetto backing vocals on songs that deal with social media witch hunts, eating disorders and depression. Matthew Thomson comments:
“We were searching for a heavier sound and we found it by delving back through the blues. From Led Zeppelin, we discovered Howlin’ Wolf and immersed ourselves in his back catalogue. I read Hellfire, the Jerry Lee Lewis biography, and fell in love with the Biblical language that was used to describe his ‘devil music’.
The Amazons have recently returned from an intimate UK tour which sold out within seconds. They also have a homecoming at Reading University on 27th May scheduled and have been confirmed for Neighbourhood, Community as well as Reading and Leeds Festivals.
