The Amity Affliction has announced the release of a new album, ‘This Could Be Heartbreak‘, for Friday 12th August through Roadrunner Records.
The first taste of the new album comes in the form of a video clip for the single, ‘I Bring The Weather With Me‘. You can watch a video for that now below.
Deeply personal and emotionally wrenching, ‘This Could Be Heartbreak‘ is The Amity Affliction’s most transformative and revealing record yet. Recorded by producer and longtime collaborator Will Putney at Melbourne’s Holes and Corners with additional drum tracking done at Sing Sing Studios, the album finds The Amity Affliction evolving their signature powerful and cathartic song craft.
‘This Could Be Heartbreak‘ follows The Amity Affliction’s ARIA platinum-certified #1 album, ‘Let The Ocean Take Me‘, which proved an to be an international breakthrough for the group. It marked The Amity Affliction’s second consecutive time topping the ARIA Album Chart following 2012’s gold-certified ‘Chasing Ghosts‘. More recently, the band released ‘Seems Like Forever‘, the #1 ARIA gold-certified documentary chronicling The Amity Affliction’s history up therough the ‘Let The Ocean Take Me‘ tour, which saw the band performing in front of capacity crowds around the globe, including sold-out shows at New York City’s Irving Plaza and London’s KOKO. Furthermore, the band’s most recent single, ‘Shine On‘ came in at #25 on triple j’s Hottest 100 earlier this year.
