The Amity Affliction Drop Album Details, Announce Australian Tour

After a massive arena tour last year, Metal core band The Amity Affliction will now get up close and personal with their Australian fans as they bring their 'I Bring The Weather With Me Tour' to Australia this August.

The band will be staging two consecutive nights of intimate performances in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

The tour is off the back of The Amity Affliction's widely anticipated new album, This Could Be Heartbreak. The platinum-certified Australian band’s new LP will be out on August 12 via Roadrunner Records. The band - Joel Birch (Vocals), Ahren Stringer (Bass, Vocals), Ryan Burt (Drums) and Dan Brown (Guitar) - detailed the new material in a press conference yesterday hosted by former Triple J radio host and Frenzal Rhomb guitarist, Lindsay McDougall which can be viewed on the band’s Facebook.

The Amity Affliction will first head to the UK for a series of summer festival dates and headline shows like the Slam Dunk Festival and Download Festival, before heading down under.

Brimming with emotions, This Could Be Heartbreak is The Amity Affliction’s most transformative and revealing record yet. Recorded by producer and longtime collaborator Will Putney at Melbourne’s Holes and Corners with additional drum tracking done at Sing Sing Studios, the album finds The Amity Affliction evolving their signature powerful and cathartic song craft. Both ambitious and grand, album standouts “This Could Be Heartbreak” and “All F*cked Up” are fueled by frontman Joel Birch’s desperation.

This Could Be Heartbreak is a follow up to The Amity Affliction’s ARIA platinum-certified #1 album, Let The Ocean Take Me, which paved international success for the group. More recently, the band released Seems Like Forever, the #1 ARIA gold-certified documentary chronicling the band’s history up through their epic “Let The Ocean Take Me World Tour,” which saw them performing before capacity crowds worldwide, including sold-out shows at New York City’s Irving Plaza and London’s KOKO. Furthermore, the band’s most recent single, “Shine On” landed at #25 on Triple J’s “Hottest 100” of 2016. For more than a decade, The Amity Affliction has confronted the very darkest edges of man’s existence through their music and with Severed Ties, 2008’s full-length debut, and 2010’s ARIA gold-certified follow-up, Youngbloods, The Amity Affliction instantly put themselves in the roster of heavy music's forefronts.

The band will be joined in support by Trophy Eyes.
