Roadrunner Records has plans to introduce Aussie rockers The Amity Affliction to U.S. fans. Here are the details they sent over:
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."
