The Amity Affliction announce new album ‘Not Without My Ghosts’

Lords of metalcore The Amity Affliction dropped some new singles recently, which fans lauded for being – to put it mildly – heavy as fuck. Today, their patient audience receive the news they’ve been waiting for, with the band announcing that their highly anticipated full-length, Not Without My Ghosts, will land on Friday the 12th of May. Alongside detailing the forthcoming LP, Amity have also shared another track from the release in the shape of ‘It’s Hell Down Here’.

The song is described by frontman Joel Birch as “a letter from myself and Ahren, written by me, to our friends who have passed on to the other side.” It forms one of 10 songs on the album that were self-produced by The Amity Affliction at Grove Studios in New South Wales. On the album as a whole, Amity summarise that it “deals with the paradox of not wanting to be alive, and yet needing to stay here, while also mourning the loss of friends and trying to use the music as catharsis.”

Earlier this year, the act shared ‘I See Dead People‘, a tribute to those left behind featuring late friend Louie Knuxx. The Kiwi rapper passed away in 2021 of a heart attack, with Birch explaining that the track dives into “the ongoing and nebulous struggle that comes with dealing with the pain of friends killing themselves, while myself dealing with passive suicidal ideation.” The new era of The Amity Affliction commenced with predecessor single ‘Show Me Your God‘, which dates back to last November.

Fans might have already seen that in advance of the news today, The Amity Affliction announced one hell of a national tour in support of the record. Taking place this October, they’ll be joined by Silverstein, Earth Caller and Winnerz Circle. Ticket info is after the jump.
