Biography

The Amber Herd are a five piece alternative rock band from Nottingham and Chesterfield.

‘Conventional’ is not a word that applies to The Amber Herd. Formed in Nottingham in 2007 and consisting of members from all over the country that independently all converged on the East Midlands, drawing on influences from thrash metal to traditional folk whilst bringing life to the kind of vivid pictures and swirling soundscapes that LSD was designed for, The Amber Herd are anything but ordinary.

Headlining shows at major venues Around The UK, BBC Radio Nottingham sessions, high profile support slots with the likes of CUD, Jesus Jones, Knifeworld, Delays, That Petrol Emotion, Ultrasound and many more; Festival appearances at Bearded Theory, Headstock, Glastonwick (by personal invitation of Attila the Stockbroker) and High Voltage Festival (having won a national competition to headline the acoustic stage) have led to the band being described in a variety of media as “Nottingham’s best kept secret?”, “an intriguing band with an eye for drama and melody” and “Mind blowing!”.

Whilst always a formidable live proposition, the band have not eschewed the studio having released two double A side singles (the second of which, ‘Thursday’, was voted Notts Live radio’s number one song of 2010 in their annual top 50 run down), a five track EP (closing song ‘Magnolia’ memorably featuring on Channel 4’s Hollyoaks in the UK) and now the band’s debut album ‘Our Only Eden’ – a 55 minute concept album in the non-dirty sense of the word that promises to take the listener to another dimension.
