The Amity Affliction Premiere New Song “Death Is All Around Us”

The Amity Affliction have premiered a new song titled “Death Is All Around Us.” The track is available as part of a newly released EP titled “Somewhere Beyond The Blue.“ The effort, which also features “Like Love” and “Give Up The Ghost,“ can be found in various digital outlets. It can also be pre-ordered on 7 inch vinyl. The band said the following about the latest single:

“We’re deep into a pandemic that won’t go away. With lockdowns still happening here in Australia and no touring in sight, it’s a hopeless situation and one that inspired the lyrics in this song.”

The Amity Affliction Premiere New Song “Give Up The Ghost”

The Amity Affliction have premiered a new song titled “Give Up The Ghost.” Vocalist Joel Birch commented:

“It turns out everything is faster and yet we have the same level of attention to detail we’ve always had on our records. The lyrics were already written, and Ahren had a chorus melody on another demo that worked for this song so it all came together quickly which was cool. Banging out a song on a whim in a day isn’t something we’ve done before, so it felt pretty good.”

Sleeping With Sirens & The Amity Affliction Officially Cancel Their Co-Headlining Tour

Sleeping With Sirens and The Amity Affliction have officially cancelled their co-headlining tour. The trek, which was also set to feature Stray From The Path and Unity TX, was previously postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The bands issued a joint statement:

“It’s with great disappointment that we must inform you the TAA/SWS tour is cancelled. After almost two years, it’s become increasingly difficult getting both bands’ schedules aligned. We were both looking forward to the tour & thank each and everyone of you for your patience while we attempted to make this tour work. We apologize to everyone who were anticipating this tour. TAA will be announcing new dates for March/April in the next couple of weeks. SWS is finishing up their new album & working on 2022 plans. Once again we are very sorry for this & can’t wait to play for you all again very soon. Love, SWS & TAA

*Refunds can be found at point of purchase”

The Amity Affliction Have “Two New Songs En Route”

The Amity Affliction Release New Songs “Midnight Train” & “Don’t Wade In The Water”

The Amity Affliction have released two new songs, “Midnight Train” and “Don’t Wade In The Water.“ These tracks are b-sides from the band’s latest album “Everyone Loves You… Once You Leave Them.“

Joel Birch commented:

“‘Midnight Train‘ came about from Ahren just singing ‘midnight train’ in amongst some other garbage when he did the scratch track for me to get an idea of how he wanted to sing the chorus. We wrote the entire song around those two words, which wasn’t actually hard because there was some context to it. It follows an arc of my relationship with my wife, ending where we are today. We’ve known each other for 25 years and the song covers some key moments for both of us.

As for ‘Don’t Wade In The Water‘, It’s a song about my mother and father and the role the church had in separating them, and then the role that the church and religion played in my later life. Obviously, it is a play on the old hymn sung by Ella Jenkins, which is a beautiful, beautiful song. I wanted to contrast that with my own personal experience, which was disenfranchising to say the least.

There is a conversation happening within the song between my mother and father which is tumultuous and emotional, with two opposing sides with two opposing ways of viewing the world, and I really feel like it was captured well with the music. Ultimately, it didn’t make the cut, but I honestly like this song as much as all the songs that made it to the record.”
