The Amity Affliction have today released their anticipated brand new album ‘Not Without My Ghosts’. Perhaps their heaviest record yet, ‘Not Without My Ghosts features recent singles Show Me Your God, I See Dead People feat. Louie Knuxx, It’s Hell Down Here and title track Not Without My Ghosts feat. phem.
Self-produced at Grove Studios in New South Wales, the band say the album “mostly deals with the paradox of not wanting to be alive, and yet needing to stay here, while also mourning the loss of friends and trying to use the music as catharsis.”
The band are currently on tour in the US, but they still wanted to do something special for their Australian fans upon release, so they’ve announced exclusive merch-pop up stores in Melbourne and Sydney.
They will be in Melbourne on Friday 12 May at Oshi Gallery from 3pm, and Sydney will be on Saturday 13 May at Crowbar from 12pm. In Sydney, under 18’s will need to be accompanied by an adult at all times.
This October, The Amity Affliction will embark on a national tour in support of the album, with shows in Brisbane (second show added), Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne (both shows sold out), and Perth. For tickets and more information click HERE.
Last year, The Amity Affliction sold out a national headline tour in support of their previous album ‘Everyone Loves You…Once You Leave Them’, closing out the year with appearances at Good Things Festival. In 2021, the band released a trio of singles – Like Love, Give Up The Ghost, and Somewhere Beyond The Blue.
Over the last nearly 20 years, The Amity Affliction has garnered millions of fans who deeply resonate with the band, driving both streams and kudos for the lineup. Four records in a row—2012’s ‘Chasing Ghosts’; ‘Let the Ocean Take Me’ (2014); ‘This Could Be Heartbreak’ (2016); and ‘Misery’ (2018), debuted at #1 on Australia’s ARIA Charts. In the U.S., ‘Let The Ocean Take Me’ and ‘This Could Be Heartbreak’ both debuted in the top 30 Billboard Top 200, while ‘Misery’ elevated the band to new critical heights, helping the band reach a total stream tally that has surpassed a billion.
