Amazing Radio are known for championing the brightest and best new talent from the region, the country and beyond with their host of presenters introducing us to the wonders of a plethora of new bands every week. It’s probably no surprise then that their sister organisation the Amazing Record Co. are releasing a new compilation with the help of rock specialist Aaron Phillips, celebrating the diverse nature of bands from the region and further afield.

You Heard It Here First: Rock, Vol. 1 features two groups from the region: Gallery Circus and Boy Jumps Ship. Both bands have been building up a great deal of momentum this year with their riotous sound and are being rewarded with slots on the compilation alongside names like God Damn, Tellison, Metasoma and VUKOVI.

Aaron Phillips himself said: “It was hugely exciting to be able to help curate the track listing for the album, as it points a metaphorical devil horn in every direction of rock – alt rock, melodic metal, pop-punk – it’s all there, and features some of the most exciting bands on the planet right now and serves as a taste of what we do on the Amazing Rock Show.”

With that tantalising “volume one” label too, we’re sure this isn’t the last compilation from Amazing that will be satisfying our need for heavy riffage and clattering drums either.

You Heard It Here First: Rock, Vol. 1 is released on Friday 18th September.
