THE AMITY AFFLICTION cocoon raw honesty in haunting hooks, pummeling grooves, and rapturous riffs. Since emerging in 2008, Joel Birch [vocals], Ahren Stringer [vocals, bass], Dan Brown [lead guitar], and Jon Longobardi [drums]— have served up two ARIA gold-certified albums, Youngbloods  and Chasing Ghosts , and earned a platinum certification from ARIA for the seminal 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  elevated them to new critical heights with praise from Medium, Alternative Press, The Noise, and more.
The Australian heavy quartet unearth a powerful truth on their seventh full-length and debut for Pure Noise Records, Everyone Loves You Once You Leave Them. ‘We went back to our heavier side for the majority of the album,” says Ahren. “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.” “We just got back to a more of rock guitar sound,” agrees Joel. “We wrote naturally, and it felt great.”
Fresh from the 2020 release of Everyone Loves You Once You Leave Them, The Amity Affliction are set to perform in significantly more intimate venues than usual, allowing fans the chance to be much closer to them for undoubtably the heavy music tour of the year.
One of Australia’s most electrifying punk bands, WAAX, emerged from Brisbane in 2015, possessing an intensity and captivating, barely-controlled chaos that had been missing from the local music scene for years. 2017’s Wild & Weak EP saw their popularity grow exponentially off the back of tracks like ‘Same Same’ and ‘This Everything,’ as did their striking reputation as a live band. Radio soon stepped up to the plate and carried these honest and hard-nosed new tunes across the globe. Now we land at the next phase of their career and the immense new single ‘Labrador.’ It doesn’t take long listening to realise that once again you’re in brand-new WAAX territory in ‘Labrador’ – undeniably the biggest song of their career.
Immersed in the DIY backgrounds of Australian Punk/Hardcore/Heavy music, NERVE DAMAGE came together to speak up, and out about issues close to home. Forming in 2015, and releasing a demo not too long after, NERVE DAMAGE (ND) managed to get a string of international supports from the get go, which led to a run of interstate shows. Not too long after, ND did their first Close the Gap tape with fellow Brisbane band Manhunt. This set ND down the path of music with a message.
