Amenra announce very special acoustic show

Expanding on their ever surprising and always challenging sound and live presentation, Amenra will be playing an unique acoustic set a few days before they headline Desertfest.Taking place at London’s Bush Hall the performance extends the celebration of Amenra’s 20th anniversary and their ethereal heaviness in all it’s forms. 

Founding member CHVE had this to say about their upcoming appearances: “Two decades of friendship brought us here. In this time, this place, of sublime gratitude, we all found solace in our sound; and are still around. It’s hard sometimes to look back – the moments of happiness we shared and those moments that broke us – through thick and thin; above anything I feel grateful. Grateful towards all band members, towards all people that stood and still stand by us throughout the years, thats why we want to celebrate it with you. We realise that what we have is special, maybe one of a kind. That is why we want to celebrate it with you and thank you for helping us persevere. Throughout the year we will do a select amount of specially chosen shows, and these will be one of those moments where it all comes together – where we all come together – and persevere.”
