The Amity Affliction return with new album, single and tour dates

The Amity Affliction have announced that their new studio album will be released later this year.

The follow-up to 2016’s This Could Be Heartbreak is titled Misery and it’ll arrive on August 24 on Roadrunner Records.

To mark the announcement, the Australian outfit have shared a video for the lead track Ivy (Doomsday), which can be watched below.

It was written and co-directed by vocalist Joel Birch, with the promo the first chapter in what will be a three-part short film “chronicling a dark tale of three friends and their quest for vengeance.”

The Amity Affliction are about to head out on the road across North America on the Vans Warped Tour, and have also today announced a UK and European tour for later in the year. 

Those shows will kick off with a performance at Munich’s Tonhalle on September 28 and conclude with a set at Antwerp’s Zappa on October 28. Dream State, The Plot In You and Endless Heights will support on select dates.
