Lots of single releasing, hopefully some radio play and heads down finishing the second album.

The New Single from the debut album - 'Day One'.

How do you come up with your lyrics?
They make themselves and I get out of the way.

How do you believe Ammp fits into the NZ music industry?
I think we are a small fly caught in a web.

What can you never leave home without?
My Ipod.

How do you describe Ammp’s music?
Songs that will knock you over the head and make you listen.

What is the best part of being a musician?
Friends.

What inspired you to start Ammp?
A love for writing songs.

How did you come up with the name Ammp?
Intitials from a few of our names and we couldnt come up with anything better so it stuck.

The Debut Album 'From The Back of The Sun' is a keeper and if you don't buy it you will die in seven days.
