The Amity Affliction -EasyCore Club Night 2011

Friday, September 30, 2011




Age Restrictions

In a day and age where few heavy bands of any substance cross over to a greater audience, The Amity Affliction are using their voices to deliver a message as powerful as their music.

While many bands can claim to have large a fanbase, it’s rare to find a group with a following as incredibly dedicated as The Amity Affliction. Their fans travel widely, get lyrics and band art tattooed, and make their love for the band known as often as they can. It’s why they sell out shows across their native Australia to deafening roars and why they are constantly one of the top bands on all social media networks.

Most recently, their new album “Youngbloods” debuted at #6 on the Album Charts in Australia and went on to get unprecendented nominations for Best Hard Rock Performance at both the ARIA and IMA Awards – surprising the entire industry and proving that a real fanbase wins over media hype and radio play.

Following extensive touring overseas and an early evening slot on the Soundwave 2011 festival, the band returned to headline Australia in late May - selling 15,000+ tickets in 8 shows, including 4500 alone at their Brisbane homecoming at the outdoor Riverstage arena. So what is it that has made people lose their mind over a heavy band that originated 6 years ago in a small town in Queensland Well part of it is hard work, with the band being a mainstay of the touring circuit for their entire existence.

They also understand small towns and make an effort to constantly tour places that many bands can’t be bothered with. But that’s only part of the chemistry that made this band what it is today. The truth it’s the stories and personalities of the members themselves that has set Amity apart from the pack and made them one of the most loved and respected acts in Australia. Behind the cheeky song names and party atmosphere the guys carry around on tour, The Amity Affliction is a band with a message - and both that message and the music are delivered with impact and experience – this is a band full of people who have fought for everything they have, and a band of people who are encouraging young people to do the same.

Joining The Amity Affliction for their first ever New Zealand dates will be local hardcore heroes Antagonist A.D.. Returning to the local live fray on the back of the success of their latest release 'Old Bones Make New Blooms', these shows will mark the band's first Auckland appearances in several months and the last for some time to come. RW ENTERTAINMENT and GOODVIBES PROMOTIONS presents THE AMITY AFFLICTION with special guests ANTAGONIST A.D. Easycore Club Night, 4:20, Auckland City Friday September 30th Zeal, Henderson (All Ages) Saturday October 1st Tickets on-sale Friday August 12th from www.undertheradar.co.nz and Real Groovy Auckland.
