AMITY IN FAME

The band formed in May 2008 and soon after recorded their debut album ‘Dinner for One’, which was self-recorded, self-mastered and also produced by the band at zero-budget. It was released in July 2008 and has become one of the most downloaded albums ever on Jamendo, with over 30,000 album downloads and over 350.000 plays worldwide. Also, the band received two Jamendo awards from the community there – in the categories ‘Rock’ and ‘Experimental’.

In January 2009, Amity in Fame released its first low budget music video to the song ‘Dinner for One’ which received around 80,000 views on YouTube and also got regular airplay on one of Central Europe's biggest music channels, GoTV. Less than a year after the band’s first rehearsal, they had already appeared on numerous European radio stations, music blogs and compilation albums and achieved rank five in one of Europe's biggest band contests, the International Live Award with over 1,000 contestants from 8 nations and playing in front of over 5,000 people in the course of this contest. The debut album ‘Dinner for One’ is one of the most successful Creative Commons albums to date and it has also been aired by Rammstein via the PA before the band's concerts since 2009, increasing the listenership of Amity in Fame by some hundred thousand listeners.

In 2012, the band signed with Graviton Music Services, founded by Menno Kappe (ex-Roadrunner Records) and Aleksandra Grofelnik and where, after the sales from Roadrunner Records to the Warner Music Group, a number of former Roadrunner employees from all over Europe joined their ranks. Amity in Fame will release their second album ‘Through’ via Graviton in spring 2012. According to the band, the second album represents a new level of ‘powerful acoustic rock’ (the band’s self-titled style) with which Amity in Fame wants to lure their listeners into a world of unique sound and picturesque fantasies. The album already has been praised by reviewers from the progressive, alternative and metal genre and it is well received by their fans.

Currently, the band is promoting the new album and working on a music video for the “The Kraken”, according to the band itself, the heaviest acoustic song ever written. In April 2012, the band will also release the third selfmade zero-budget music video from the new album “Through” to the song “Mirrordrops”. In the fourth quarter of 2012, Amity in Fame will release a six-track EP on Jamendo where the large fanbase is already longing for a sequel to the extraordinarily well received debut. The EP will contain six unreleased songs written in the spirit of powerful acoustic rock.
