Australia’s very own post-hardcore heroes The Amity Affliction have checked in recently, announcing the impending release of their Roadrunner Records debut Chasing Ghosts.

Despite a mysterious tweet (see below) from the band stating that the government has sought to ban their album artwork due to the reference to suicide, it looks as though the design will go ahead. Chasing Ghosts has big shoes to fill, following in the shadows of Youngbloods, which landed at #6 on the ARIA charts as well as seeing the band get nominated for Best Hard Rock Performance at both the ARIA and AIR awards.

The album was recorded in Florida with Michael ‘Elvis’ Baskette (Blessthefall, Incubus) and according to frontman Joel Birch, it’s set to be a doozy of a release. “Recording with Elvis has been the most amazing experience for Amity since we began making records eight years ago. It’s incredible. We came into this record more prepared than we ever have before as well, so everything is coming together really, really well.”

Known for their ‘good vs evil’ style of vocals, Birch also commented on the story the album will tell “I’ve tried to write my thoughts in a manner that can connect with people on an even more personal level than I did on Youngbloods, and I’m proud that the substance and depth hasn’t been lost or compromised, or watered down.”

Set to drop September 14 through Roadrunner Records, this is one album to keep an eye out for, as Alternative Press Magazine labelled them as one of its 100 Bands You Need To Know In 2012.
