HE AMITY AFFLICTION THE STAIRWAY TO HELL TOUR WITH SPECIAL GUESTS WE ARE THE OCEAN (UK) AND HOPELESS
THE AMITY AFFLICTION’S PARTY WITH AUSTRALIAN FANS BEFORE THEY HEAD OVERSEAS
As THE AMITY AFFLICTION prepare to spend the end of 2009 replicating their Australian success beyond our borders, they will have one last party with the fans that have made this year the band’s best yet. The STAIRWAY TO HELL tour will take in East Coast centres and regional towns, finishing up in their hometown Brisbane for their last Australian shows for 2009.
THE AMITY AFFLICTION will also play Sounds of Spring Festival in September and their second Northern QLD tour of the year. They recently headlined the Drunk and Disorderly Tour with Deez Nuts, selling out shows all around Australia and solidifying their reputation as one of the leaders of the punk and hardcore scenes in our country.
They are also writing for their follow up to highly revered 2008 debut “SEVERED TIES”, and expect to be releasing the album in Spring 2010. Before they can look at releasing another album, THE AMITY AFFLICTION will be announcing dates in the UK and USA in the coming months.
Joining them on the Stairway to Hell Tour will be WE ARE THE OCEAN and HOPELESS. WE ARE THE OCEAN hail from London, and are making their first visit to Australian shores, promoting the release of their debut album “Cutting Our Teeth”, which is out in November 2009. They will support The Used on their UK tour in September, and have recently made a name for themselves on a plethora of UK festivals, including DOWNLOAD FEST 2009. Their current self titled EP is out now via iTunes.
Although a new and young band, HOPELESS are an integral part of the growth of modern day Australian hardcore. Hailed by some as one of the best new up and coming bands in recent years, HOPELESS are consistently growing and reaching new heights of intrigue with their brand of bleak, reflective and naively optimistic brand of hardcore. Their debut album “Dear World” was tracked in Australia and mixed in the States by Jay Mass (Carpathian, Verse, Shipwreck AD) and is in stores now.
