The Amity Affliction are hitting the road this September, and they're bringing a stack of huge supports along for the ride. Get ready, because this is going to be a big one.
What could be better than The Amity Affliction returning to Australian shores for a huge national tour? When you check out the supports that are joining them this September, you’ll have your answer.
Following their fourth consecutive #1 ARIA debut with their sixth studio album, Misery, The Amity Affliction cemented themselves as one of this country’s biggest and most successful heavy bands. They added the accolade to a tremendous list of wins, including Gold and Platinum-certified albums, #1 singles, and huge national and international tours – all the while continuing to grow and expand the legion of loyal fans they’ve fostered over the last 15 years.
Fresh off the back of two huge, main stage performances at Download Australia and a string of sold-out shows around the world – this tour is set to be one of their biggest yet.
Joining them on the road will be two huge international names as well as one of the hottest up and coming acts on the Australian heavy music scene.
Leading the stacked list of supports is none other than American metalcore giants Underoath. Following their reformation and the release of their first album in eight years, Erase Me, Underoath have continued to impress fans around the world. Upon release, the record was celebrated for reaching the heights of the band’s most successful records 2004’s They’re Only Chasing Safety and 20016’s Define The Great Line. We can’t wait to have them back on our stages.
They’ll be joined by Japanese heavy metal titans Crossfaith, who will bring their fusion of rock, metal, electronica to our stages once again. Recently on our shores for a much-talked-about set at UNIFY Festival in January, their return is sure to be an exciting one.
Melbourne rockers Pagan have established a cult-like following in their short career so far. If you haven’t yet been acquainted with their wild live performances and death rock’n’roll sound, this tour is your chance. From riling up festival crowds to supporting some of the biggest international and Australia acts to tour the country, Pagan are a band to watch in 2019.
The Brisbane leg of the tour will be even sweeter, with Brisbane Festival’s 30th anniversary of Riverstage celebration bringing the Heaven and Hell Festival to the venue. Local acts South East Desert Metal, Void Of Vision, Endless Heights, and Thornhill will join a stack of to be announced talent, rounding out what is sure to be a huge, and very sweaty, party.
The Amity Affliction will take of Riverstage, Brisbane as part of Brisbane Festival on Saturday 14 September. Tickets are available via Ticketmaster.com.au.
