Australia always seems to be separate from the rest of the world when it comes to certain things. Be it the ever repeating storylines of Neighbours, or the ridiculously overhyped V8 Supercars racing series, they do what they want. The Amity Affliction are a bit like that. If they were in the US, they would arguably fade into obscurity for their uncreative style, but in Australia they flourish as one of the bands at the forefront of their genre.

Australia’s The Amity Affliction have announced the title of their upcoming full-length album as ‘Chasing Ghosts’, the debut release since signing to Roadrunner Records last year. The album is set for a September 17th 2012 release.

Back with some fire in their hearts from the success of latest full-length ‘Welcome Home Armageddon’ – an album desperately needed after their previous two miss-the-mark album efforts – Bridgend’s Funeral For A Friend have thankfully revived themselves into a scene they helped mould since their debut ‘Casually Dressed…’ dropped in 2003.

Australia deal in a good line of metal bands these days. Between the trendy metalcore of Parkway Drive and Deez Nuts and the all the more barbarous approach of the recently split The Red Shore, or even the crushing malevolence of such unique acts as the terrrifying Portal, it’s clear that not only is the metallic sound thriving down under, but there are handful of outfits daring to do something a little different. Unfortunatley, The Amity Affliction are not one of these.
Australian metalcore act The Amity Affliction have signed over to Roadrunner Records, who will be releasing their recent album ‘Youngbloods’ digitally on October 24th 2011.
