Back, and better than ever before
Amplify 2 is the successor to Amplify, which has been helping musicians rock on Tumblr for the last two years. Amplify 2 was built from the ground up, and includes all your favourite features from Amplify with much, much more.
Amplify 2 is responsive, so all those posts, upcoming shows and music player will look delicious on all devices.
Dynamic loading of posts
What does this mean? Well basically Amplify 2 doesn't need to refresh the page everytime you navigate to a new post or page. So your tunes will keep playing while users journey their way through the website. Pretty cool huh?
Easily one of the best features of Amplify 2 theme. Just enter your Soundcloud username and you'll have a fully featured audio player on your blog. Works on iPhone/iPad too! You can choose to have it in the sidebar or in the top navigation.
Link to your latest album on iTunes, simply by uploading your album art and url. You can link up to three albums/tracks on iTunes.
Songkick and Bands in Town
Easily connect to Songkick or Bands in Town in order to display upcoming events - your fans will never miss another gig. Display on the sidebar or have all upcoming shows on a single page.
Flickr and Instagram
Photos on the road? Photoshoots? Amplify 2 integrates with Flickr and Instagram so you can display latest photos on the sidebar, or even create a full gallery page itself.
Display latest items from your Big Cartel store. A great way to sell more of those t-shirts.
Facebook and Twitter are integrated in the sidebar, as well as many other social icons for a quick links bar.
If you use Mailchimp for your newsletter (if you don't then you should), you can have fans sign up right from the sidebar.
Don't worry, your blog won't look like every other band template. You can choose between fixed width or a full width layout, change the header image, upload your own logo and go crazy with fonts and colors (including support for Typekit if you want to get real fancy). Amplify 2 theme includes over 70 customization options.
