blog_0435

Our mates The Amity Affliction today announced their biggest headline tour to date, in support of their recently released smash hit album Let The Ocean Take Me, which was released in Australia last Friday and is now available worldwide. The tour will take in some of Australia’s most iconic venues and will include support from Special Guests Architects, Issues, Stray From The Path and Deez Nuts.

Let The Ocean Take Me is the fourth album by The Amity Affliction, and is the follow up to 2012’s #1 and Gold Certified hit Chasing Ghosts. The album, along with it’s lead single Pittsburgh, has connected with fans across the world and has reaffirmed Amity’s position as one of the most successful Australian acts in recent memory. Later this week they will announce a worldwide headline tour taking in venues across Europe and North America.

The Let The Ocean Take Me Tour will be their first Australian dates of 2014. While their last three Australian tours saw them sell out multiple nights in each city, this time around the band will upgrade to their largest rooms yet including the iconic Festival Hall in Melbourne, Hordern Pavilion in Sydney and Red Hill Auditorium in Perth. They will also return for a third time to Brisbane’s Riverstage, where they put on one of the most memorable heavy music performances ever seen in Australia in 2012 on their Chasing Ghosts Tour.

A limited release VIP pre-sale will be made available at 9.00am, Thursday June 19th. Fans who buy tickets on 19 June will go into the draw to win a chance to hang side of stage during Amity’s set. For more details head over here.

Tickets to the Let The Ocean Take Me Tour will be available from 9.00am, Friday June 20th.
