There's just something about bands that'll never go out of style. Leather jackets, boots, guitar straps slung lower than they're meant to, that attitude…all of it is infectious for a reason. It's a constant debate where the best bands hail from, but as someone who's lived in both the states and United Kingdom, I think it's safe to say that British bands do it best. A prime example is the youthful blood of The Amazons, a band from Reading that has toured relentlessly since 2014. Earlier this year they released their debut/self-titled album, played loads of festivals, and also made their first visit to the states.

For the latest edition of the 405 Exchange podcast, Ken Grand-Pierre spoke to the band about touring for years ahead of their debut album, being misjudged/underestimated by critics, and why rock will never die. Check out their conversation below.

"By the time we did the album, we weren't perfect but we were pretty there with the songs."
