The Amity Affliction shared another track off their upcoming album Everyone Loves You… Once You Leave Them, out tomorrow February 21 via Pure Noise Records. The new single, “Forever,” is the fourth single the group has released off of the album.
Watch the video for “Forever” below.
On the song, vocalist Joel Birch shares, “‘Forever’ is a song about the dueling internal narrative while in the depths of a depressive episode. On the one hand, love and support, on the other hand, thoughts of suicide, while also grappling with the follow on effect it would have. I made a promise to myself to make it to my son’s eighteenth birthday when he was three, and I intend to keep it. Hopefully by then I will have figured out how to properly cope with what is likely a lifelong battle with Bipolar II.”
The Amity Affliction described the album as “a result of our re-found love for heavy music.”
“We wanted to make a heavier album to back up our most recent releases to let our fans know that we understand what the majority want to hear from us. We have experimented creatively over the years and are now able to apply what we’ve learned to what we consider the perfect blend of Amity new and old.”
The band is currently out supporting Beartooth on their European tour before returning to the U.S. for a co-headlining tour with Sleeping With Sirens. A full list of tour dates is below.
