An ArchaeaAmusement Parks On Fire

Notthingham, UK's melodic alt-rock meets dream pop / shoegazing masterminds Amusement Parks On Fire have just announced their first album in over a decade, titled "An Archaea" set to release on June 25, 2021. The band has sporadically teased us with some new material in the form of a couple EPs over the last 10 years, keeping fans anxiously awaiting the announcement of their 4th proper full length and follow up to the masterful "Road Eyes" released in 2010. Thankfully, the wait is almost over as we will have thier new LP blasting through our stereos this summer.

Amusment Parks On Fire's brand of beautiful noise often showcasing layers of guitars and feedback, both loud and quiet, combined with soaring melodies and pop hooks, make them one of the best musically passive agressive bands of the genre. Fans of My Vitriol, Catherine Wheel, Dinosaur Jr, Smashing Pumpkins, Hum and My Bloody Valentine should all find something to love about these guys. The band has not released any singles from the forthcoming LP yet that I'm aware of, but as soon as they do, we certainly will post about it. I know I can't wait to hear this in full, as I am sure I will have plenty of good things to say about this release, and it will be in regular rotation all summer. Definitely one of my most anticipated releases of 2021. In the meantime, pre-order the album at the link provided.

Amusement Parks On Fire are back

May 19th, 2021

As I stated in the album announcement, Amusement Parks On Fire have finally returned with an official announcement for their 4th LP and 1st in over a decade titled "An Archaea". This album is a longtime coming and certainly one of my most anticipated albums of the year. For those who aren't familiar with them, I highly suggest you dive into their back catalog as each LP offers something different and special. However, if you want to start somewhere, give their last LP "Road Eyes" a listen and I promise you will not be disappointed, especially for those who enjoy 90s nostalgia, all things shoegaze/dream pop, and big melodic guitar rock anthems. More details on the new LP forthcoming and I am sure I will have plenty to say about it.
