From Amber Run: “Dear Friends, It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce our shows at Paradiso Amsterdam and Union Chapel in London are postponed. Due to the public health concerns and local government restrictions because of COVID-19, we have no choice but to postpone these shows. We are extremely disappointed, however we are pleased we have been able to reschedule these shows with all original tickets remaining valid for the new dates. We know these shows seem a while away, but your safety and wellbeing is the most important thing to us, and we will be working hard in the meantime to make these shows even more special, perhaps even with some new music… If you can no longer attend, please contact your point of purchase for a refund, otherwise we’ll see you there. Stay safe and stay at home if you can. We’ll see you soon. Your friends, AR x”

If you have any concerns or questions please do get in touch to [email protected]. We appreciate your patience during this very busy time.


Following the release of their third album ‘Philophobia’ and a world tour in 2019, Amber Run return for a one-off intimate, unplugged show at London’s beautiful Union Chapel.

Whether platonic or romantic, unrequited, unconditional or ugly, every human experiences some kind of love to some degree. At its very best, love – whether from a parent or child or a partner – can give you purpose. It can make you feel more whole and complete than you ever thought possible. It can make life worth living. At the same time, it can totally and utterly destroy you. That conflict – and the delicate balance between the two – is something that Amber Run explore thoroughly on the 10 beautiful, soul-searching songs that make up Philophobia, their third record. Yet while that aversion is the central focus the new record from the Nottingham trio – consisting of lead vocalist Joe Keogh, bassist Tom Sperring and keyboardist Henry Wyeth – its songs also explore the nature of love in all its many different, complex facets and forms to bring that complex tornado of emotions and feelings to life.

‘Philophobia’ is out now.
