It’s been a jam-packed year of new music so far, but The Amity Affliction have been saving the best until last. As we head towards the close of 2022, the Aussie metalcore legends have dropped the hammer on ‘Show Me Your God’, pulling no punches with a classically heavy output that will delight and surprise fans eagerly awaiting new music from the beloved act. The single represents the first cut off the forthcoming record from The Amity Affliction, with more details hopefully to follow on when we’ll see it release in its entirety.
“‘Show Me Your God’ is the first song off our first self-produced record,” the band shared. Never ones to shy away from confronting their own vulnerability, they elaborate: “The song is the first in a series of explorations and internal meditations on how our past shapes us and interacts with our various mental struggles in the present, drawing from both personal experience and also the trauma of close friends who have passed away or who have dealt with close loved ones passing away.”
Waving goodbye to the lockdowns heralded in by the dominance of coronavirus, The Amity Affliction celebrated freedom in style with a sold out tour earlier this year that finally took their seventh studio album, Everyone Loves You…Once You Leave Them, on the road. While that LP was produced by previous collaborator Matt Squire, the band have pulled production in house for their latest offering. If you didn’t catch them at a show earlier this year, The Amity Affliction will also be appearing at Good Things Festival this weekend, with tickets currently still available in Sydney and Brisbane.
