About The Amateurs
kidderminster, United Kingdom
The word Amateur comes from French, and can be translated as “lover of”, reflecting the amateur’s motivation to work as a result of a love or passion for a particular activity.
2008 saw The Amateurs play a standout set at Guilfest, do a sponsorship agreement with Jagermeister, support Cage The Elephant at Festibull and become Kerrang! Radio DJ Loz‘s hot tip for 2009.
"The Amateurs are easily one of the most talented bands that we've supported on Kerrang Radio's Unsigned Show over the past few years and the new EP is testament to that fact.
The 3 tracks featured deftly show what the band are capable of and why they have such an established following here in the Midlands. Track 1 'Homesick' is a song that just oozes commercial success and The Amateurs are surely now set to move it on to the next level."
