“If you listen carefully, you’ll hear this is a sister track to ‘All My Friends Are Dead,'” says bassistAhren Stringer. “We wrote it to bookend the album and keep it heavy fuckin’ metal. Lyrically, I think it ties the whole theme of the album together and wraps up what Joel [Birch] is trying to get across. Even though everything might seem perfect from the outside, sometimes being broken on the inside can never truly be fixed.”
The Amity Affliction — Joel Birch [vocals], Ahren Stringer [vocals, bass], Dan Brown [lead guitar], and Jon Longobardi [drums] — previously released the video for “Soak Me In Bleach.”Watch it here.
Prior to that, the band dropped “All My Friends Are Dead.”
Both tracks represent some of the heaviest, most memorable material and the most relatable lyrics of the band’s deeply personal catalog. As always, The Amity Affliction hold nothing back, allowing fans to get closer than ever on Everyone Loves You… Once You Leave Them.
“This album is a result of our re-found love for heavy music,” The Amity Affliction says. “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 learnt to what we consider the perfect blend of Amity new and old.”
The band will support Beartooth in Europe from 16th February through 6th March 6. The band will be on a co-headline tour with Sleeping With Sirens this Spring in the US.
