The Amity Affliction Announce New Album ‘Not Without My Ghosts’

The Amity Affliction have revealed the details of the new album we’ve been anticipating since the release of ‘Show Me Your God’ back in November. Titled Not Without My Ghosts, the Gympie post-hardcore band’s eighth studio LP will arrive on Friday, 12th May.

The news arrives alongside the third single from the forthcoming album, ‘It’s Hell Down Here’. Check out the film clip, filmed and edited by Tomise, below.

The Amity Affliction – ‘It’s Hell Down Here’

Amity frontman Joel Birch describes the latest single as “a letter from myself and [clean vocalist] Ahren… to our friends who have passed on to the other side.”

Like previous singles, ‘Show Me Your God’ and ‘I See Dead People’ (featuring late rapper Louie Knuxx), ‘It’s Hell Down Here’ marks a return to Amity’s heavier roots. The single is representative of the album as a whole in that it deals with some heavier themes.

Not Without My Ghosts mostly deals with the paradox of not wanting to be alive, and yet needing to stay here, while also mourning the loss of friends and trying to use the music as catharsis,” the band said in a statement.

The Amity Affliction recently announced an Australian headline tour for October, which includes shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth. They’ll be supported by Canadian emo lifers Silverstein, Melbourne’s Earth Caller and Adelaide’s Winnerz Circle.
