Sleeping With Sirens & The Amity Affliction Postpone Co-Headlining Tour

Sleeping With Sirens, The Amity Affliction, Stray From The Path and Unity TX have postponed their tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. Sleeping With Sirens commented:

“This may not come as a surprise, but we have to announce that we are rescheduling our upcoming tour with The Amity Affliction, Stray From The Path and UnityTX. The health and safety of everyone who attends our shows is of the utmost importance to us, and it is not possible to play these shows as scheduled, in order to follow the current social distancing guidelines. This all may seem obvious, but we will really look forward to getting back out there and seeing you all. We will announce new dates as soon as we can, and all previously purchased tickets and VIP WILL be honored for any and all rescheduled shows. In the meantime, stay tuned for updates and please practice the necessary precautions to keep you, your loved ones and our communities safe.”

The Amity Affliction Premiere “Forever” Music Video

The Amity Affliction have premiered a new video for their new song “Forever.” This track is from the band’s new album “Everyone Loves You… Once You Leave Them,” which will be released tomorrow (February 21). Vocalist Joel Birch said the following:

“‘Forever’ is a song about the dueling internal narrative while in the depths of a depressive episode. On the one hand, love and support, on the other hand, thoughts of suicide, while also grappling with the follow on effect it would have. I made a promise to myself to make it to my son’s eighteenth birthday when he was three, and I intend to keep it. Hopefully by then I will have figured out how to properly cope with what is likely a lifelong battle with Bipolar II.”

The Amity Affliction Premiere New Song “Catatonia”

The Amity Affliction have premiered a new song titled “Catatonia.” This track is from the band’s new album “Everyone Loves You… Once You Leave Them,” which will be released on February 21.

Ahren Stringer commented:

“If you listen carefully, you’ll hear this is a sister track to ‘All My Friends Are Dead‘. We wrote it to bookend the album and keep it heavy fuckin’ metal. Lyrically, I think it ties the whole theme of the album together and wraps up what Joel [Birch] is trying to get across. Even though everything might seem perfect from the outside, sometimes being broken on the inside can never truly be fixed.”

In other news, the group have also booked some headlining shows with Stray From The Path and UnityTX around their tour with Sleeping With Sirens:

04/28 Lubbock, TX – Jakes Sports Bar
05/09 Tampa, FL – The Orpheum
