TESS OF THE CIRCLE announce release of critically acclaimed album ‘Amplify’ on audiophile vinyl for first time.
“AMPLIFY” is the career defining album from emerging rock sensations TESS OF THE CIRCLE coming to audiophile quality vinyl for the very first time this Summer!
‘One of the best rock albums of the last decade’ – * * * * *, Rock & Reel / R2 magazine
Produced by the prolific Gavin Monaghan (Editors, The Sherlocks, Jaws, Babes In Toyland, Robert Planet, Lemmy, Ryan Adams, Grace Jones) the album breathes honesty with laid bare lyrics, impassioned vocals and British rock and roll guitar sensibilities; all armed with hints of alt rock and fresh indie production. Bold, assured and confident.
‘A very hot UK act’ – Bob Harris, BBC RADIO 2 | “A bit of a wow!” – 9/10, POWERPLAY
This Anniversary Edition of the album on vinyl will be produced in partnership with the Plane Groovy label. The first 300 copies will be strictly limited edition; featuring 180 gram audiophile vinyl mastered from the original 24 bit files complete with unique artwork and a lyric sheet featuring a hand signed/hand numbered letter from songwriter Tess Jones.

‘A style that sways from folk to rock to punk, but always leads to a strong chorus, The passion never falters.’ – Classic Rock magazine
“We are thrilled to bring this record to vinyl after so many requests for it at gigs
and festivals”, Jones says, “I hope the release satisfies existing fans as well as
being a perfect opportunity to introduce us to music fans who may have missed
out on us the first time around!”.
In just two years, TESS OF THE CIRCLE have amassed an impressive cv with repeat support from multiple National Radio stations (BBC Radio2, BBC Radio 6, Kerrang, Virgin, Planet Rock) in the UK and live sessions on BBC Radio 2, BBC London & BBC Oxford.
