Hailing from Essex, London and Suffolk, and only formed in 2015, AMBY first got cozy with four piece SURGE last spring around the time of their debut release, their soaring instant anthem “Tears Of Joy”.
Since then they launched a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to release their second single on coloured 7” vinyl, following up the release with an energetic accompanying video that captures their live performances over a range of rehearsals, gigs, and festival dates.
SURGE have forthcoming local live dates at The Waiting Room, Colchester on 20th February and Hope’s Bar, Clacton on 26th March and will be traveling further afield in the course of 2016, with summer festival dates already on the horizon.
SURGE are Billy Fenton on drums, David Smyth on bass, Alan Jones on guitar and George King on guitar and lead vocals.
