THE AMITY AFFLICTION To Release 'This Could Be Heartbreak' Album In August
May 18, 2016
Australian metalcore masters THE AMITY AFFLICTION will release their new album, "This Could Be Heartbreak", on August 12 via Roadrunner. The band — Joel Birch [vocals], Ahren Stringer [bass, vocals], Ryan Burt [drums] and Dan Brown [guitar] — detailed the new material in a press conference earlier today hosted by former Triple J radio host / FRENZAL RHOMB guitarist Lindsay McDougall.
"This Could Be Heartbreak" is available now for pre-order in a variety of limited edition physical bundles via www.theamityaffliction.net, with all DSP pre-orders going live Thursday, May 19 at 12:00 a.m. local time. All digital pre-orders will receive an instant download of the album's gripping first single, "I Bring The Weather With Me", which debuted today along with the track's official music video.
Furthermore, THE AMITY AFFLICTION have announced a run of Australian headline shows taking them back to venues they haven't played in over four years. After a massive arena tour in December 2015, these new dates will see THE AMITY AFFLICTION getting up close and personal with their Australian fans in smaller and more intimate venues.
This summer, THE AMITY AFFLICTION will head to the U.K. where they will embark on a series of festival dates and headline shows with highly anticipated sets slated for the United Kingdom's Slam Dunk and Download festivals. Following the U.K. run, THE AMITY AFFLICTION will touch down in the U.S. for a string of stateside festival dates kicking off September 10 at Denver, Colorado's High Elevation festival.
Deeply personal and emotionally wrenching, "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 Fucked Up" are equal parts heavy and hopeful, fueled by frontman Joel Birch's desperation which achieves extraordinary transcendence through radical honesty and absolute power.
