Before they crashed the ARIA Charts, toured the world and became the unlikely nominees of award shows, The Amity Affliction we’re simply a hard working punk band out of Southern Queensland. With their second album "Youngbloods" on it’s way to be a smash hit, Boomtown Records will be releasing a collection of non-album material recorded at various times throughout The Amity Affliction‘s career.
The 16 song album, titled “Glory Days” will include the High Hopes EP (2007), Self Titled EP (2005) and Early Demos (2004). But the major drawcard of the release will be two Machine-Produced out takes from the "Youngbloods" sessions, as well as liner notes written by the band.
The release of "Glory Days" will be on the eve of The Amity Affliction embarking on a world tour of close to 100 dates including extensive dates in the UK, US and Europe and only returning to Australia as the only Australian band on Soundwave in February/March. Youngbloods peaked on the ARIA Charts at #6, and has been nominated for Best Hard Rock Album at both the IMA and ARIA Awards, and is set for release worldwide early 2011. The album’s lead single “Anchors” has been a Triple J favourite since it’s release in July.
"Glory Days" will be released on November 26th via Boomtown Records, and will be available as part of an exclusive $30 T-Shirt and CD package online at fist2face.com.au and in stores at Kill the Music in Brisbane and Fist2Face in Melbourne.
