Amplifier Announce UK Tour + New Video

'The Octopus' is the grand benchmark against which all British prog rock albums will be judged this year - Classic Rock Presents Prog

There is something heroic about Amplifier's embrace - The Times

'The Octopus' is a beast of kraken-esque size and magnificence - Kerrang!

A sprawling double album of epic soundscapes. A hugely impressive triumph of self-belief - Metal Hammer

'The Octopus' is an album for others' material to be compared to not only in 2011, but for many more years to come - BBC

'An album that embraces the past but is unafraid of the future, as well as one that is entirely self-produced and mixed, serves as proof that, perhaps, the death of the record label is a good thing - 8/10 - Drowned In Sound

If you like your riffs loud, your solos frequent and your time signatures jumpy, 'The Octopus' is exactly what you're after - 9/10 - Rocksound

Amplifier have set standards high - 6/6 - Thrash Hits

After the release of their critically acclaimed double-album The Octopus earlier this year, Manchester band Amplifier have just announced details of a year ending headline UK tour. The dates are as follows:

Sun 4/12/11 Nottingham Rock City
