The Amity Affliction will drop a new album on February 21, have gifted us a new single and have announced a special bushfire benefit gig.
Their seventh studio album, and follow-up to the chart-smashing Misery, will be known as Everyone Loves You… Once You Leave Them, and is available for pre-order now on CD and limited fluoro green vinyl. Pre-order now at JB Hi-Fi.
“This album is a result of our re-found love for heavy music,” say the band. “We wanted to make a heavier album to back up our most recent releases to let our fans know that we understand what the majority want to hear from us. We have experimented creatively over the years and are now able to apply what we’ve learnt to what we consider the perfect blend of Amity new and old.”
As part of the announcement, blistering new song Soak Me in Bleach has been let loose, which you can check out here:
