The Amity Affliction, arguably Australia’s most successful heavy music exports are heading around Australia in July 2021 with the support of WAAX, Void of Vision and Nerve Damage.
Kicking things off at Sydney’s Roundhouse on July 1, the tour will then see them perform in intimate venues around the country including Eaton Hill’s Grand Ballroom, The Forum Melbourne and Thebarton Theatre, before wrapping things up in Perth’s Metro City on July 10.
The Amity Affliction cocoon raw honesty in haunting hooks, pummeling grooves, and rapturous riffs. Since emerging in 2008, Joel Birch [vocals], Ahren Stringer [vocals, bass], Dan Brown [lead guitar], and Jon Longobardi [drums]— have served up two ARIA gold-certified albums, Youngbloods  and Chasing Ghosts , and earned a platinum certification from ARIA for the seminal Let The Ocean Take Me . This Could Be Heartbreak  marked the band’s second consecutive Top 30 debut on the Billboard Top 200, while Misery  elevated them to new critical heights with praise from Medium, Alternative Press, The Noise, and more.
The Australian heavy quartet unearth a powerful truth on their seventh full-length and debut for Pure Noise Records, Everyone Loves You Once You Leave Them. ‘We went back to our heavier side for the majority of the album,” says Ahren. “We were trying to master the craft and write what we want to hear. Even though we’re older, the maturity comes out a bit more with each record.” “We just got back to a more of rock guitar sound,” agrees Joel. “We wrote naturally, and it felt great.”
Fresh from the 2020 release of Everyone Loves You Once You Leave Them, The Amity Affliction are set to perform in significantly more intimate venues than usual, allowing fans the chance to be much closer to them for undoubtedly the heavy music tour of the year.
