Sing-a-longs in a van, gasstop coffee, laughs, beers, random alcoholic shots we don’t know the name of, more laughs, a little sight-seeing, new friends, old friends, getting lost, more coffee and a lot of food. Yep, we’re hitting the road. Come say hi if you live near any of the venues we’ll be hitting on our January tour!
It’s slowly become a Note to Amy tradition; a list of our favorite albums of the past year.
Just like in 2012 and 2013 we sat down and all created a top 10 of our favorite albums of 2014. A great year for music, and we had a lot of fun going over the past year.
The only album that made all five our lists is “Hang” by Lagwagon. Wouter and Eelco are the only two that have “The Satanist” by Behemoth in their lists, both put that album as their #1 of the year. They’re our two little metal fanatics and maybe it’s safe to hide your matches when we play in a town near you if they have a church. You never know.
The total list -just like our individual lists- is quite diverse, ranging from punkrock to metal to hardcore and to some nice relaxing soft tunes. We can’t always be tough guys.
Anyway, for those of you that use Spotify, we created a little playlist with our communal top 10, so feel free to check that out and see (and hear) what the Note to Amy guys listen to. We’ll probably end up enjoying the list ourselves in our van when we head on tour next week!
Feel free to let us know what you think of our lists, and please share yours with us! We love to discover new things too.

Great news for those living in Germany and Czech Republic; we’ll be coming your way in January!
So far we’ve been setting up a small tour thru that will take us to some places we haven’t been before – which is awesome – and to some of our favorite places.
We still have a few dates to fill on this run however, so if you can be of any assistance, we’d greatly appreciate that.
We don’t need much, we will travel with 5 guys and a backline, and just need a stage or a floor to come and rock on. Some drinks and food would be nice, a little gas money and even a place to sleep, but that’s all details.
Please get in touch if you know of anything to help out!
