Amplifier sign to Kscope – new album Echo Street coming March 11th

Kscope are pleased to announce that Echo Street, the new album from Amplifier will released on the label on March 11th 2013. The album looks set to build upon the success of The Octopus, the critically acclaimed double album that the band self-released in 2011.

Amplifier frontman Sel Balamir said of the deal, "A lot of labels have courted the upcoming Amplifier release, but Kscope were the only serious label that seems not to be stuck in the 20th Century in terms of their artist relationship. Their progressive and flexible business model seems to come as standard as opposed to an additional recoupable service".

Balamir continues, "We're looking forward to having a great team of like-minded people to work with, a focusing of ideas that we can work with in coordinating our releases and really maximising the potential of the band's increasingly prolific output".

Kscope's Johnny Wilks says of the new deal, "We have been huge admirers of the band for a good few years. So we are really looking forward to working with Amplifier and introducing them to new audiences around the world via the Kscope network. What a way to start 2013."

The deluxe two disc edition of Echo Street - packaged in a 60 page hardback book also features the new Sunriders EP, an additional record of new tracks, exclusive to this format.
