ARIA-certified Australian metalcore trailblazers THE AMITY AFFLICTION have just dropped the video for “Forever.” Watch it here.
The song appears on the band’s album Everyone Loves You… Once You Leave Them which is out now and is the band’s Pure Noise Records debut.
“‘Forever’ is a song about the dueling internal narrative while in the depths of a depressive episode,” says singer Joel Birch. “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 — Joel Birch [vocals], Ahren Stringer [vocals, bass], Dan Brown [lead guitar], and Jon Longobardi [drums] — previously released the video for “Soak Me In Bleach.” Watch it here. The band also premiered the new song “Catatonia” over at Loudwire. Listen here. Prior to that, the band roared out of the gates with “All My Friends Are Dead.”
“This album is a result of our re-found love for heavy music,” The Amity Affliction said upon announcing the record. “We wanted to make a heavier album to back up our most recent releases to let our fans know that we understand what the majority want to hear from us. We have experimented creatively over the years and are now able to apply what we’ve learnt to what we consider the perfect blend of Amity new and old.”
The band are currently supporting Beartooth in Europe & UK until 6th March 6. The band will be on a co-headline tour with Sleeping With Sirens this Spring in the US.
