Known worldwide for their incendiary live performances, The Amity Affliction is currently blowing up stages across North America as part of Blessthefall's ‘The Hollow Bodies Tour'. The multi-artist trek - which also features, among others, labelmates Heartist - continues through mid-May. The Amity Affliction will perform in the UK in June at the Download Festival.
Urgent, aggressive, and remarkably cathartic, ‘Let The Ocean Take Me' is The Amity Affliction at their vital best. Recorded by producer Will Putney (Winds Of Plague, Upon A Burning Body) at guitarist Troy Brady's Evergreen Studios in Brisbane, the album pushes the band's signature post-hardcore approach to new heights of richness and diversity, providing the consummate aural partner to vocalist Joel Birch's increasingly potent lyricism. Inspired in part by a near death experience suffered during last year's Vans Warped Tour, songs like ‘Don't Lean On Me' and ‘FML' are fueled by intense emotion and anxiety but transcend through honesty and raw power.
"(The album) is about really trying to find a positive in my life again," Birch says. "Writing these songs was a very cathartic process, but I'm terrified of people listening to them and reading these lyrics because they'll know exactly what I'm thinking. I'm hiding nothing."
