Australian metalcore band THE AMITY AFFLICTION have premiered the music video for their song “I See Dead People“
The single features a guest appearance by late New Zealand rapper Louie Knuxx, who passed away from a heart attack back in 2021. You can check it out below.
THE AMITY AFFLICTION vocalist Joel Birch comments: “The song is about the ongoing and nebulous struggle that comes with dealing with the pain of friends killing themselves while myself dealing with passive suicidal ideation.”
The track is expected to appear on THE AMITY AFFLICTION‘s forthcoming eighth studio album “Not Without My Ghosts“.
The 40-year-old Birch, who has been diagnosed with the bipolar II disorder, a condition in which people experience patterns of hypomanic episodes along with depressive episodes, elaborated on the meaning of the “Not Without My Ghosts” album title, saying: “You can help it sometimes. No amount of therapy can excise [your ghosts]. It’s sort of discussing how to move forward despite them. So happiness despite trauma.”
