The Amity Affliction Honour The Ghost Inside With Live “Engine 45” Cover

The Amity Affliction

Oceancore overlords The Amity Affliction are currently underway with an intimate theatre tour in support of their new album, This Could Be Heartbreak. The Gympie faves have so far knocked two Brisbane shows out of the park, with another four across Sydney and Melbourne still to go – while it certainly isn’t amongst their biggest tours, the band have used the shows as a chance to showcase some massive things… Like their cover of The Ghost Inside‘s “Engine 45”.

The jam – a standout cut from 2012’s Get What You Give – was given a tribute during Amity’s first Brisbane show last week; The Ghost Inside were originally slated to open for their Big Ass Tour last year, but, as we all know, those plans soured when TGI would up in the midst of a horrific bus crash. “Engine 45” is a fitting choice, as the tune raises a solid middle finger to adversity.

Amity opted not to play the song during their second Brisbane show the following night, but there’s hopes they’ll give it another spin when the tour resumes in Sydney tomorrow. Last week, the band announced they would be hitting the road again in 2017, a 13-date regional tour with Hellions and Ocean Grove on the cards for January.

Also last week, Amity became the first heavy band to ever achieve three consecutive #1 albums on the ARIA Charts. This Could Be Heartbreak is out now via UNFD and Roadrunner.

As for The Ghost Inside, the crew have been making crazy impressive progress following their incident last year, and are set to make their live return at next year’s Vans Warped Tour. In the meantime, you can still donate to the GoFundMe campaign set up to aide with their hospital bills – this is the USA’s healthcare system we’re talking about, after all – and suss out some of their scene classics on iTunes.
