The Amity Affliction Shines in Nashville



On May 21, 2023 Australian metalcore band The Amity Affliction brought their Not My Ghosts Tour to Eastside Bowl in Nashville, Tennessee. The Amity Affliction along with supporting acts Omerta and Cant Swim quickly sold out this 750 capacity venue, and fans were packed in like sardines ready to see what was about to unfold.

From Gympie, Queensland metalcore band The Amity Affliction formed two decades ago in 2003. In the last twenty years they have released eight studio albums, the most recent on May 12, 2023 titled Not Without My Ghosts. Most known for their emotionally powerful lyrics which include subjects of depression, anxiety, and substance abuse vocalist, Joel Birch has previously stated this is something he has dealt with on a personal level. Their highly personal yet relatable lyrics clearly resonated with fans, at a quick glance you you could see fans hugging, swaying, and crying with each other as the band performed. It was a beautiful vibe in the venue as fans supported each other their set, it was a feeling of love, comfort, and family. During their 14 song set The Amity Affliction performed several fan favorites including “Deaths Hands,” “All My Friends Are Dead,” “Like Love,” “Don’t Lean On Me,” and closed out with the encore “Soak Me in Bleach.” The Not Without My Ghosts tour began on May 10th in San Diego, California and hit several major cities including Tucson, Milwaukee and Columbus before finishing up on May 23 in Orlando, Florida.
