The Amity Affliction have released their widely anticipated new LP Misery today on Roadrunner Records and will do a series of in store appearances starting today.
Bassist and vocalist Ahren Stringer is thrilled the new record is out in the world and is looking forward to fans hearing new music from them.
“It’s hard to describe how excited we are for everyone to finally hear this record. We started writing Misery two years ago and have put everything we possibly had into it. I personally have never been more proud of anything in my life and I’m so happy to now share it with all of you,” he says.
Misery is highlighted by the singles ‘Ivy (Doomsday)‘ and ‘Feels Like I’m Dying‘, the cinematic videos for which mark the first two chapters of a three-part short film written and co-directed by frontman Joel Birch.
Having just completed a U.S. tour on the milestone final Vans Warped Tour 2018, The Amity Affliction are set to head to Europe for a fall headline tour slated for stops in Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, Norway, and Belgium.
But before that, the band will complete in store signings back home in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
Recorded earlier this year in Baltimore with producer Matt Squire (Panic! At The Disco, Ariana Grande, Underoath), Misery is the long-awaited follow-up to The Amity Affliction’s acclaimed fifth studio album, This Could Be Heartbreak, which debuted at #1 on the ARIA chart.
