Multi-million streaming Australian metalcore trailblazers have shared another new track, “Give Up The Ghost”. The emotionally charged but heavy track wasn’t meant to be recorded, it came at the end of a session where they were recording alone for the first time. “It turns out everything is faster and yet we have the same level of attention to detail we’ve always had on our records” says singer Joel Birch.
“The lyrics were already written, and Ahren had a chorus melody on another demo that worked for this song so it all came together quickly which was cool. Banging out a song on a whim in a day isn’t something we’ve done before, so it felt pretty good.”
ABOUT THE AMITY AFFLICTION:
Since emerging in 2008 on the debut Severed Ties, The Amity Affliction have served up two ARIA gold-certified albums, Youngbloods  and Chasing Ghosts , and earned a platinum certification from ARIA for the seminal Let the Ocean Take Me . This Could Be Heartbreak  marked the band’s second consecutive Top 30 debut on the Billboard Top 200 and went gold in Australia, while Misery  elevated them to new critical heights and most recently Everyone Loves You…One You Leave Them  showed the band returning to their heavier side and saw the group’s total stream tally surpass 460 million and counting.
