To celebrate the news of THE AMITY AFFLICTION‘s upcoming studio album, the band has shared the video for “It’s Hell Down Here” which you can check out below.
“It’s Hell Down Here” address mortality — a topic frequented several times on the album. It also boasts the vocal dynamics and pummeling breakdowns that are the band’s signatures.
THE AMITY AFFLICTION vocalist Joel Birch states: “This song is a letter from myself and Ahren [Stringer, bass/vocals], written by me, to our friends who have passed on to the other side.”
He continues: “I’m 41. I’m bipolar. And I’m pretty tired of it. That’s where lyrics like ‘Like a snake I tire / the cold dark clouds, they steal my light’ come from. The song is wrapping up how I feel daily, and reflecting on the time leading up to my friend killing himself. I’m sure a lot of people who have experienced that guilt at not seeing what becomes glaringly obvious after the fact.”
The album boasts multiple features — something the band has not incorporated into a release in quite some time — including late New Zealand rapper Louie Knuxx, who passed away in 2021, as well as COMEBACK KID‘s Andrew Neufeld, THE PLOT IN YOU‘s Landon Tewers, and Phem.
