Roadrunner Records’ group, The Amity Affliction, have announced details for their new album. This Could Be Heartbreak, the platinum-certified Australian band’s new LP, will arrive on August 12th.
This Could Be Heartbreak is available now for pre-order in a variety of limited edition physical bundles via theamityaffliction.net, with all DSP pre-orders going live Thursday, May 19th at 12 AM, local time. All digital pre-orders will receive an instant download of the album’s gripping first single, “I Bring The Weather With Me”, which debuted today along with the track’s official music video (see below).
Deeply personal and emotionally wrenching, This Could Be Heartbreak is The Amity Affliction’s most transformative and revealing record yet. Recorded by producer and longtime collaborator Will Putney at Melbourne’s Holes and Corners with additional drum tracking done at Sing Sing Studios, the album finds The Amity Affliction evolving their signature powerful and cathartic song craft. Both ambitious and grand, album standouts “This Could Be Heartbreak” and “All Fucked Up” are equal parts heavy and hopeful, fuelled by frontman Joel Birch’s desperation which achieves extraordinary transcendence through radical honesty and absolute power.

Furthermore, The Amity Affliction have announced a run of Australian headline shows taking them back to venues they haven’t played in over four years. After a massive arena tour in December 2015, these new dates will see The Amity Affliction getting up close and personal with their Australian fans in smaller and more intimate venues. Tickets for the upcoming dates will only be available for purchase with pre-orders of This Could Be Heartbreak at this location through Sunday, May 22nd with a limited amount of tickets released to the general public the following week.
This summer, The Amity Affliction will head to the UK where they will embark on a series of festival dates and headline shows with highly anticipated sets slated for the United Kingdom’s Slam Dunk Festival and Download Festival. Following the UK run The Amity Affliction will then touch down in the US for a string of stateside festival dates kicking off September 10th at Denver, Colorado’s High Elevation festival.
