Manchester’s Amplifier return with their sixth and most definitive album to date, 'Trippin' With Dr Faustus', due for release via Rockosmos June 30th. via Rockosmos, via all digital distributors and available on double 180g gatefold transparent vinyl, a collector's edition mediabook.

I’m about to confess, and it’s not even Sunday. This is my first time listening to Amplifier, so let’s dive straight in, with “Rainbow Machine” unable to compare their sound to previous incarnations may hinder of harm how this record connects with someone like myself. Near the end of this track, drummer Matt Brobin and Alex Redhead add a beat to the scenario, taking over the moment, a good introduction for a novice such as me.

Trippin with Dr Faustus has plenty of groove for the hips swaying, head nodding, Camden beer lovers. “Freakzone” and “Kosmos” both stand out, but, more so with “Kosmos” it’s edgier guitar sound takes it to a different level on this record, the bass creates an atmosphere of implosion. There’s Pink Floyd elements on this record, but anyone with a prog reference will be likened to the Cambridge legends.
