THE AMITY AFFLICTION Reveal Title Track From Forthcoming Album ‘NOT WITHOUT MY GHOSTS’


The Amity Affliction is set to release their highly anticipated album, Not Without My Ghosts, next month. The band has already released several singles, hinting that this album will be their heaviest yet. In anticipation of the May 12th release, the band has shared the album’s title track, “Not Without My Ghosts ft. phem,” along with an official music video.

The song features phem, an LA-based alt-pop artist, and according to The Amity Affliction’s frontman Joel Birch, it explores the idea that one cannot move through life without carrying the ghosts of their past with them, and how these ghosts can take on various forms.

This October, The Amity Affliction will embark on a national tour in support of the album, with shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne, and Perth. For tickets and more information click HERE.

“Not Without My Ghosts ft. Phem” is the fourth single lifted from the record, following “It’s Hell Down Here”“I See Dead People”and “Show Me Your God”. Self-produced at Grove Studios in New South Wales, the band say the album “mostly deals with the paradox of not wanting to be alive, and yet needing to stay here, while also mourning the loss of friends and trying to use the music as catharsis.” Pre-save / pre-order Not Without My Ghosts HERE and listen to “Not Without My Ghosts ft.
