The Amity Affliction and Heartist, have announced plans to join Blessthefall on the band’s upcoming US headline tour.  The trek, deemed The Hollow Bodies Tour will also feature Silverstein and Secrets and  is set to kick off April 8th in El Paso, TX at Tricky Falls then  continue through mid-May where it will eventually wrap-up at Mesa, AZ’s Nile Theater on May 15th. Tickets for all dates go on sale January 31st.  For more information please visit www.theamityaffliction.net and www.heartistband.com.

 

The upcoming trek marks the return of The Amity Affliction to the US, having spent all of last summer stateside crushing stages with their infectious post-hardcore anthems on the Vans Warped Tour.  Currently, the band is preparing to head into the studio to record their follow-up to 2012’s Chasing Ghosts  which debuted at #1 on the Australian ARIA Chart and was certified Gold in Australia.  What’s more, Alternative Press recently selected The Amity Affliction’s forthcoming record as one of their “Most Anticipated of 2014.”

 

“Not only are we super excited to get back to North America after what feels like far too long an absence, but to head back there with new songs to share in the lead up to album number four is also a great feeling. The US already holds a piece of our hearts, we can’t wait to get back there,” commented The Amity Affliction’s frontman, Joel Birch.

 

Joining The Amity Affliction on the upcoming spring tour will be label mates and explosive rockers, Heartist.  The Southern California based band spent the majority of 2013 grinding it out on the road in support of their stunning debut EP, Nothing You Didn’t Deserve.  Currently, the band is putting the finishing touches on their Roadrunner Records debut full-length album which was produced by David Bendeth (Paramore, Of Mice & Men, Bring Me The Horizon).

 

Heartist frontman Bryce Beckley commented, “We’re thrilled to be back on the road with OC staples Blessthefall, Silverstein, our label mates in The Amity Affliction, and our good friends in Secrets. Looking forward to an exciting spring!”
