The Amity Affliction Sign to Roadrunner Records

ROADRUNNER RECORDS WELCOMES THE AMITY AFFLICTION

AUSTRALIAN BAND TO RELEASE YOUNGBLOODS on OCTOBER 25

BAND TO TOUR THIS FALL

New York, NY: Roadrunner Records is pleased to announce the signing of The Amity Affliction, easily one of the most head-turning and exciting hard rock bands to come barreling out of Australia. The band has scorched a trail Down Under and is now poised to stake its claim in the U.S. Roadrunner will release Youngbloods digitally on Oct. 25 and the band will head back into the studio in early 2012 to record the follow up with Youngbloods producer Machine (Lamb of God, Cobra Starship, Suicide Silence.)

The Amity Affliction’s humble origins date back six years ago in a small town in Queensland, Australia. With an industrial sized bucket of elbow grease, the band became a fixture on the local touring circuit. The Amity Affliction quickly ascended the ranks and became one of the best-loved bands in Oz. Armed with cheeky song titles, a party attitude and the type of aggressive and forward- thinking metal that will simultaneously make you think while putting hair on your chest, The Amity Affliction deliver a poignant message encased in mosh-worthy anthems.

“Ever since I can remember in Amity we’ve been dreaming big: big tours, big shows, big crowds, but never in our wildest dreams did we ever think something this big would come around,” frontman Joel Birch said. “Signing to Roadrunner worldwide is almost beyond a dream come true, because there’s no way any of us would have ever dreamed of being able to achieve something this monumental.”

Birch continued, “We’re proud to be added to such an incredible roster of bands, and having already spent time with some of the team at the label, we’re excited to become a part of the larger Roadrunner family. This is a massive step forward for us as a band, and one we’re going to be pouring all our energy into in the future.”

The band’s most recent album Youngbloods debuted at No. 6 on the Album Charts in Australia and went on to get unprecedented nominations for Best Hard Rock Performance at both the ARIA and IMA Awards. Following extensive touring overseas and an early evening slot on Soundwave 2011, the band returned to headline Australian in late May, selling 15,000+ tickets over the course of eight shows, including 4500 tickets at their Brisbane homecoming at the outdoor Riverstage arena. Youngbloods was voted Best Album of 2011 on Triple J’s Short Fast Loud program and in Blunt Magazine, where they notched for their third cover in 18 months. That issue lands this coming October.

Clearly, The Amity Affliction have canvassed their native land. Now it’s time for the rest of the world to catch on.

Below are the band’s Fall tour dates. The band will be a part of the “No Guts, No Glory” tour featuring Miss May I, Pierce The Veil, Woe, Is Me and Letlive.
