The Amity Affliction Reveal New Album Title

The Amity Affliction have confirmed that their new album will be called “Not Without My Ghosts.” The effort is expected to be released next year.

Joel Birch said the following about the title during a recent interview with Andrew Haug:

“I’m not sure I’m allowed to say the title. I’m just gonna fucking say it. It’s called ‘Not Without My Ghosts‘, which is something that I saw in… I ripped it off. It’s from this art show in Sheffield. And I was just walking past and I saw it, and I just wrote it into my notes. And I never went in or anything.”

He continued:

“I didn’t come up with that, but that did inform the direction for my lyrics. ‘Cause I was, like, ‘Oh, fuck. That’s something I can apply to my past behaviors, my past experiences — everything; past traumas and everything.’ One of the lines on one of the songs is ‘I have to carry on but not without my ghosts.’ That’s sort of the overarching theme, I guess, of the record.”

Birch went on to say that it also relates to his battle with bipolar II disorder:

“No amount of therapy can excise [your ghosts]. It’s sort of discussing how to move forward despite them. So happiness despite trauma.”
