The Amity Affliction Announce New Album MISERY Out August 24

Roadrunner Records band The Amity Affliction have unveiled details of their widely anticipated new album, Misery which arrives worldwide Friday, August 24th. Misery is available for pre-order now, with an instant grat download of the album’s first single, Ivy (Doomsday), which is streaming now accompanied by a cinematic official music video at www.theamityaffliction.net. Written and co-directed by the band’s own Joel Birch, the official video for Ivy (Doomsday)marks the first chapter of a three-part short film chronicling a dark tale of three friends and their quest for vengeance. Additional chapters will be unveiled in the weeks to come – for regular updates, please visit www.theamityaffliction.net.

The Amity Affliction will celebrate Misery with an epic tour schedule, beginning this week with a North American run as part of the milestone final Vans Warped Tour 2018. Those dates begin tomorrow, June 21st at Pomona, CA’s Fairplex and continue through early August. From there, The Amity Affliction will head to Europe for a headline tour slated for stops in Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, Norway, and Belgium.

Recorded earlier this year in Baltimore, MD with producer Matt Squire (Panic! At The Disco, Ariana Grande, Underoath), Misery is the long-awaited follow-up to The Amity Affliction’s acclaimed fifth studio album, This Could Be Heartbreak which debuted at #1 on the ARIA chart and is certified gold. That album also entered among the top 30 on the U.S. SoundScan/Billboard 200 and was The Amity Affliction’s third consecutive time topping the ARIA Album Chart: Let The Ocean Take Me (2014) and Chasing Ghosts (2012) also debuting in the top spot with Platinum and Gold certifications respectively. More recently, the band released Seems Like Forever, the #1 ARIA gold certified documentary chronicling The Amity Affliction’s history up through their epic Let The Ocean Take Me World Tour, which saw the band performing in front of sold-out crowds around the globe, including shows at New York City’s Irving Plaza and London’s KOKO. Furthermore, the single, Shine On came in at #25 on Triple J’s “Hottest 100” of 2016.

This Could Be Heartbreak – which includes the singles/videos, This Could Be Heartbreak, I Bring The Weather With Me, All F*cked Up, and Fight My Regret – earned global acclaim and press attention, including a cover feature in Rolling Stone Australia. Kerrang! awarded the album four Ks, hailing it as the band’s “personal-best” while noting, “This is heartbreak, and The Amity Affliction has rendered it more magnificently than ever.” “(The Amity Affliction’s) ear for an unstoppable melody demands respect,” declared Metal Hammer, while Blunt noted, “(This Could Be Heartbreak) strikes from a darker angle…its melancholy burns fervent.” “Synth-soaked tracks and lyrical masterpieces dominate the album,” raved Vulture Magazine, “showing the Amity boys have an ability to provide a definitive yet ever-evolving sound, tying in new fans while still catering to the old.” “(This Could Be Heartbreak) glistens with vivid memories and brutal honesty that is unapologetic,” wrote Outburn, while Alternative Press summed it best: “The Amity Affliction are at their strongest.”

The Amity Affliction is Joel Birch (vocals), Ahren Stringer (bass, vocals), and Dan Brown (guitar).
