The Amity Affliction have announced a European tour this for this coming winter.

The Aussie metalcore outfit have added shows to their existing UK dates across November and December with Stray From The Path, Northlane and Wage War in support of their fifth album This Could Be Heartbreak – due out on August 12.

The new dates can be seen in the list below, highlighted in bold.

Roadrunner Records say: “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.

“Both ambitious and grand, album standouts This Could Be Heartbreak and All Fucked Up are equal parts heavy and hopeful.”

The album is available for pre-order.
