The Amity Affliction Drop “Forever” Video

ARIA-certified Australian metalcore trailblazers The Amity Affliction have just dropped the video for “Forever.” Watch it here.

The song appears on the band’s album Everyone Loves You… Once You Leave Them. The album released on, February 21, and is the band’s Pure Noise Records debut. Order it here.

“‘Forever’ is a song about the dueling internal narrative while in the depths of a depressive episode,” says singer Joel Birch. “On the one hand, love and support, on the other hand, thoughts of suicide, while also grappling with the follow on effect it would have. I made a promise to myself to make it to my son’s eighteenth birthday when he was three, and I intend to keep it. Hopefully by then I will have figured out how to properly cope with what is likely a lifelong battle with Bipolar II.”

“This album is a result of our re-found love for heavy music,” The Amity Affliction said upon announcing the record. “We wanted to make a heavier album to back up our most recent releases to let our fans know that we understand what the majority want to hear from us. We have experimented creatively over the years and are now able to apply what we’ve learned to what we consider the perfect blend of Amity new and old.”

The Amity Affliction will support Beartooth in Europe from February 16 through March 6. The band will return to the U.S. this spring on a co-headline run with Sleeping With Sirens. The Amity Affliction North American tour dates are below.
