The Amity Affliction set for the Oh Yeah Centre on European tour

Brisbane based Metalcore band The Amity Affliction are pleased to announce their debut Belfast show at The Oh Yeah Centre, Belfast on 7th June 2016.

The Amity Affliction has released four studio albums to date, with their most recent ‘Let The Ocean Take Me’ charting at number one in the ARIA charts.

Returning with their fourth album, Let The Ocean Take Me, The Amity Affliction have never sounded more vital. Urgent, aggressive, catchy, and diverse, it pushes their signature sound to the next level, providing a riveting soundtrack to the earnest admissions of vocalist Joel Birch, giving their diehard fans the album they both demand and deserve.

“We’ve always been in this for the long haul, and we always want to keep getting better,” states Birch. “We toured for five years around Australia almost non-stop before anyone even really noticed us, and then with each of our records our following seemed to double. That’s really humbling, because we never set out to be ‘successful’ in this way, and our fans are really important to us, and we’re just going to keep writing the best songs we can.”

Formed in 2003 and comprised of Birch, clean vocalist/bassist Ahren Stringer, drummer Ryan Burt and guitarists Troy Brady and recent addition Dan Brown, the band have steadfastly refused to alter their sound to accommodate current fads. However, with each successive release they have built upon this, and Let The Ocean Take Meis the biggest, richest, and most sonically varied record the band have delivered. “We’ve always strived to write songs that stick in your head and punch you in the face at the same time,” says Stringer. “That’s what we do, and I know it’s such a cliché to say going into a new record you want your heavier parts to be heavier and your catchier parts to be catchier, but that is what we always want to do.  However, that means nothing unless the songwriting is the best it can be, and I think on this record we’ve achieved everything that we set out to.”
