Hailing from the gutters of Brisbane's potent hardcore scene, it seemingly took THE AMITY AFFLICTION years to get it together.
But from the moment they released their 'High Hopes' EP in 2007, the touring rampage began. In no time, THE AMITY AFFLICTION was a household name amongst the hardcore and punk community of Australia, their mixture of metallic riffage, punk rock swagger and sing / scream vocal attacks making its mark on all who got in their way. But it's not just their music that people have taken notice of - Amity (as they are affectionately known) have an attitude and aura about their music and actions that has helped propel them even quicker to the forefront of the scene. Fans come to their shows expecting flat out fun and excitement - the members always committing to making the party after the show as intense as the performance itself. The sing-alongs don't end when the band gets off stage, and fans don't leave after they play. With members involved in putting on punk rock clubs, music magazines, graffiti magazines, graphic design companies and online blogs that are well known throughout the country, Amity and it's members are well engrained into the culture and ethic of Australian hardcore and punk rock culture.
'Severed Ties' was recorded in July and August of 2008, a grueling cross-country marathon of a recording done in Adelaide, Melbourne and Brisbane to get the best results. With guest vocals from JJ Peters (Deez Nuts, I Killed the Prom Queen), Michael Crafter (I Killed the Prom Queen, Carpathian, Confession), Matthew Wright (The Getaway Plan) and Helmet Roberts (The Daylight Curse), and production from Adelaide's Darren Thompson, the 11 track full-length promises to be one of the most anticipated local releases of 2008.
