The band have self released two singles and one e.p.
Plans for 2012 involve more touring, including Attila The Stockbroker's Glastonwick festival in June and hopefully some overseas shows. The band also plan to record and release their first full length album.
Local media has said that The Amber Herd are a cracking band...one to be watching", Nottingham's best kept secret?" and "Mind blowing!"

Thursday achieved the Number One position in Sherwood Radio s Festive Thirty for 2010. The band have also been featured in The Nottingham Evening Post, The Derbyshire Times, Nottingham Live and Live@ magazines and appeared on podcasts for Leftlion, Nusic and Soundsashire.
