Australia metalcore band The Amity Affliction will be touring the UK. Make sure you get your tickets. The band is made up of drummer Ryan Burt, guitarist Dan Brown, Joel Birch providing lead vocals and Ahren Stringer on bass and also providing vocals.
The band formed in the South-East Queensland town of Gympie following the tragic death in a car accident of Stringer’s close friend with Amity referring to their friendship and the Affliction being the grief and pain they are left with. They released a three track demo EP in 2004 and a self-titled EP the following year.
Their debut album Severed Ties came out in 2008 through Boomtown Records and rose to #26 in the Australian Album Chart. Their second album Youngbloods saw them expand even further an hit #6 on the ARIA Charts upon release in 2010, eventually becoming certified Gold. It was nominated for the ARIA Award for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Album and won Album Of The Year 2010 in Blunt Magazine.

This success was mirrored in 2014 as Let The Ocean Take Me also hit #1 however this album rose to Platinum certification.
