And they've called up some serious support bands!
Australian heavy music juggernauts The Amity Affliction are set to celebrate the release of their seventh album with a huge national tour this July.
The album, Everyone Loves You Once You Leave Them, was released back in February 2020 and marks the band’s Pure Noise Records debut. Following on from 2018’s Misery, Everyone Loves You.. also marks a return to The Amity Affliction’s heavier sound.
We went back to our heavier side for the majority of the album. We were trying to master the craft and write what we want to hear. Even though we’re older, the maturity comes out a bit more with each record.Ahren Stringer, Bass & Vocals

These upcoming tour dates are set to be special ones for Amity fans. Following big festival and arena runs in 2019, the band are continuing where they left off in 2020, playing in intimate venues around the country and getting more up close and personal with fans than usual.
We definitely live by the ‘get down early and support your locals’ when it comes to gigs, but if you don’t usually make it in time to catch all the supports, you’re going to want to make a change for this tour.
Leading the way are one of Australia’s most electrifying punk bands WAAX. Whether you’ve witnessed their onstage chaos before, or you’re new to the Brisbane group, there is a reason why their live show is unforgettable. Also in the mix is Brisbane metalcore act Void of Vision. Clocking up stage time across Asia, Europe, Australia and more, alongside scene heavy hitters, at festivals, and on their own headlining runs, you won’t want to miss these heavy-hitters. Rounding out the lineup Nerve Damage, bringing together the best of their DIY heavy music backgrounds to speak up, and out about issues close to home.
The Amity Affliction have had a stellar run with albums so far. They’ve have served up two ARIA gold-certified albums, 2010’s Youngbloods and Chasing Ghosts , and earned a platinum certification for 2014’s Let The Ocean Take Me.
This Could Be Heartbreak  marked the band’s second consecutive Top 30 debut on the Billboard Top 200, while Misery  garnered international acclaim from the likes of Medium, Alternative Press, The Noise and more.
The Amity Affliction will take their seventh album Everyone Loves You Once You Leave Them around Australia in July 2021. Tickets are on sale via Ticketmaster.com.au.
