Snap Scene: Amity Affliction at Download Festival, Flemington 11th March 2019

The Amity Affliction will be landing at Download off the back of their fourth consecution ARIA #1, for their latest LP ‘Misery’. Gympie’s much-loved metalcore sons are loved for their passion, integrity and unflinching honesty. Their latest release weaving electronic elements and even bolder hooks into their signature sound, reinventing the bands anthemic songs. Amity have carved out an international career off the back of their raw, exposing lyrics, wrapped in a package that allows fans to take in the heaviness, still leaving with a smile on their face.

They are without a doubt one of Australia’s most successful heavy music exports, sold out world tours and heavy music press favourites, with the three videos from the new record – which form part one, two and three of a short film written and co-directed by frontman Joel Birch – already clocking over 1.5 million views to date!
