The Amity Affliction’s co-vocalist Joel Birch comments, “After spending so many years coming to the UK, we are super-excited to embark on a tour of this size. We have to thank our fans for making this happen, as whenever we come to the UK we’re met with sold-out shows every time! And on a personal note, we are all incredibly stoked about playing the Roundhouse in London. It’s a venue that every band dreams of headlining, and we’re no different. It’s a beautiful space and we look forward to stepping onto the stage of one of our favourite venues in the world.”


Last month, The Amity Affliction revealed their widely anticipated new album, ‘This Could Be Heartbreak’, is set to arrive August 12 via Roadrunner Records. The forthcoming album  is currently available for pre-order in a variety of limited edition physical bundles via and at all DSPs with digital pre-orders receiving an instant download of gripping lead single, ‘I Bring The Weather With Me’. The video for ‘I Bring The Weather With Me’ can be seen on the band’s official YouTube channel,

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
