The Amity Affliction has announced today’s release of “This Could Be Heartbreak,” the title track and new single from their highly anticipated new album. THIS COULD BE HEARTBREAK arrives at last on Friday, August 12th.
THIS COULD BE HEARTBREAK is available now for pre-order in a variety of limited edition physical bundles via theamityaffliction.net and all DSPs, with all digital pre-orders accompanied by an instant grat download of “This Could Be Heartbreak,” as well as the album’s gripping first single, “I Bring The Weather With Me.”
“This Could Be Heartbreak” is joined by an equally compelling companion video directed by Mark Staubach. Today’s premiere follows the recent video debut of “I Bring The Weather With Me,” also directed by Staubach and fast approaching 1.5 million individual views at YouTube alone.
Deeply personal and emotionally wrenching, THIS COULD BE HEARTBREAK is The Amity Affliction’s most transformative and revealing record yet. Recorded by producer and longtime collaborator Will Putney at Melbourne’s Holes and Corners with additional drum tracking done at Sing Sing Studios, the album finds The Amity Affliction evolving their signature powerful and cathartic song craft. Both ambitious and grand, album standouts “This Could Be Heartbreak” and “All Fucked Up” are equal parts heavy and hopeful, fueled by frontman Joel Birch’s desperation which achieves extraordinary transcendence through radical honesty and absolute power.
