The Amity Affliction ‘Chasing Ghosts’ debuts at #1 on the ARIA charts

THE AMITY AFFLICTION DEBUT AT #1 ON THE ARIA CHARTS!

4/5 – Blunt Magazine “The songs here are some of the strongest the band has written.” – Themusic.com.au

4/5 – Alternative Press (USA)  “…this is a definitive victory for smart songwriting, heart and passion.” – Alternative Press (USA)

8/10 – JMag “They’re massive because these are good songs…” – JMag

 The Amity Affliction have raised eyebrows and hopes alike this week, with the #1 ARIA chart debut of their third studio album Chasing Ghosts (out on Roadrunner/Warner). 

While their strong debut is a first for the band, it’s also the first time a local hardcore band has taken the #1 honors in the ARIA chart’s history, and brings to the fore once again, the rising popularity of the style with Australian audiences.

Said ‘clean’ vocalist/bassist Ahren Stringer of the result: “This is absolutely overwhelming… we never thought anything like this was ever within our reach. We’re beyond stoked and we can’t wait to get back out on the road!” 

The Amity Affliction are about to embark on their biggest Australian headline tour to date, which kicks off in their hometown of Brisbane next week, followed by a spot on the AP Tour across the US. Full dates and ticketing details below.
