Aussie metalcore titans, The Amity Affliction, have today release their brand-new gut-wrenching track, ‘Like Love’.
It’s important as a band that The Amity Affliction draws from personal experience and maintains its dedication to facing up to the brutal realities of mental illness within the context of their songs. Joel is unwavering in his constant use of the music as catharsis, and this song is no different. The song shifts between positive and negative, hope and hopelessness, and draws on an intimate knowledge of drug use and depression and how the two are often inextricably linked in their personal devastation, while also acknowledging the peace for those who suffer once they are gone.
