The Amity Affliction Drop New Single; Album #5 Details; Intimate Tour Dates

The-Amity-Affliction-2015

Turns out you guys are pretty good at leaking shit – just a day after The Amity Affliction teased a massive announcement on their Facebook page, the internet exploded with rumours (and some pretty sweet cover art) that the Brisbane oceancore stalwarts’ fifth studio album would be titled This Could Be Heartbreak. Not only is that true, but the boys just confirmed when we’ll be able to get our palms on a copy – August 12th.

Unfortunately for those who’ve spent the past six months belting it out in every possible situation (see: us), last year’s standout single “Shine On” won’t be on the LP. What will be on the LP, on the other hand, is a frothing new banger by the name of “I Bring The Weather With Me” – the track was released alongside the announcement with what we can honestly say is one of the darker music videos we’ve seen recently, depicting the funeral of unclean vocalist Joel Birch. It’s the first half of a two-part clip to be continued with another forthcoming single – hopefully, that one will feature another huge-ass guitar solo as well.

In case that isn’t already enough of a bombshell for you, the band have also announced a small run of intimate tour dates in promotion of “I Bring The Weather With Me”. Amity will play some of their smallest capital city dates in years, hitting The Metro in Sydney, 170 Russell in Melbourne and The Tivoli in Brisbane alongside sadcore unit Trophy Eyes. Tickets are on sale tomorrow morning @ 9am; likely sold out by approx. 9.02am.

Watch the video for The Amity Affliction’s new banger “I Bring The Weather With Me” below!

Watch The Amity Affliction chat to Lindsay “The Doctor” McDougall about their forthcoming album.

This Could Be Heartbreak is out August 12th via Roadrunner / UNFD.
