Originally called "Combat That Nonsense", the band was formed in around about January 2003. Influenced by, among many others, The Offspring, Sum 41 and Bad Religion, the band decided it would play punk music.
The band was formed, partly, to compete in the school's "Y-Factor" competition. For this we performed a cover of The Offspring's "Kids Aren't Alright". Unfortunately we didn't get through to the final (which was eventually cancelled due to lack of ticket sales). However, we intended to continue on together, writing and playing our own music. All of us have now had a go at writing our own songs, however, the main writing credits so far have to go to David and ex-bassist Jonny. It was them who wrote our most "famous" song to date, "Identity Crisis". However, nearly every day David comes up with some new guitar material!
However, not long after the formation of the band, debate broke out over the name. Disliked by some members, hated by others, it had to go! And so began the long, and often painstaking process of selecting a new name. Various options were suggested, and rejected! However, on the 4th February 2003, we finally settled upon a new name, "Amplitude".
Our first gig at Ivory Blacks on the 20th June playing with The Idea, Roulette Dares and TYO was a big success and thanks to everyone who came to see us, it was a great night. Live tracks from the gig are on Myspace.
After coming narrowly second in Gryffe High School's "Silver Stars", the band has gone on to greater things. A recent gig at the Barfly in Glasgow saw over 50 tickets sold by the band.
We are now recording an EP which will hopefully be available in early 2006. Keep checking the site for details.
