White Hot Heat, the follow up to the acclaimed, Game On, has been produced by Luke Morley, songwriter and lead guitarist with UK Rock act, Thunder, and engineered by Nick Brine, with credits that include Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay, Snow Patrol, The Darkness, Oasis, and many more. White Hot Heat was recorded at Brine’s Leeders Vale studios in Ebbw Vale, South Wales.
“The Amorettes make a great noise,” says Morley, “so I was delighted to be involved in the new album. They opened for The Union 5 years ago, and I’ve been watching their development with interest ever since. I think we’ve captured something really special with the album, and I think it will surprise a lot of people.”
“It was a new way of working for us.” says Hannah. “ We had a week of pre-production and building the songs in the studio before we started recording. It’s safe to say this process has brought out the best in our playing, and we have grown so much as musicians as a result.” “ It was unlike anything we’ve ever done before.” continues Heather. “We’ve been introduced to an entirely new way of breaking down our songs and working out structures. Plus, it was incredible to watch Nick at work too. Fine tuning the mixes with such speed and dancing behind the soundboard. Having the legendary Kenny Dogleash in the studio was very therapeutic too; except when he watches you eat and tries to steal all your food from your hand. I think that overall, this is the most exciting album we’ve ever made.”
