THIS COULD BE HEARTBREAK followsThe Amity Affliction’s ARIA platinum-certified #1 album, LET THE OCEAN TAKE ME, which proved an to be an international breakthrough for the group. LET THE OCEAN TAKE ME marked The Amity Affliction’s second consecutive time topping the ARIA Album Chart following 2012’s gold-certified CHASING GHOSTS. More recently, the band released SEEMS LIKE FOREVER, the #1 ARIA gold-certified documentary chronicling The Amity Affliction’s history up through their epic “Let The Ocean Take Me World Tour,” which saw the band performing in front of capacity crowds around the globe, including sold-out shows at New York City’s Irving Plaza and London’s KOKO.

For more than a decade, The Amity Affliction has confronted the very darkest edges of man’s existence through their music and with SEVERED TIES, 2008’s full-length debut, and 2010’s ARIA gold-certified follow-up, YOUNGBLOODS, The Amity Affliction instantly established themselves as leading force in the heavy music world.
