The track marks the first taste of new music from the band in 2022.
The Amity Affliction have finally unveiled the first taste of new music in 2022! The new track from the Gympie post-hardcore heroes is called Show Me Your God and will surely excite old-school fans with its return to heavier roots.
"Show Me Your God is the first song of our first self-produced record," the band said. "The song is the first in a series of explorations and internal meditations on how our past shapes us and interacts with our various mental struggles in the present, drawing from both personal experience and also the trauma of close friends who have passed away or who have dealt with close loved ones passing away." So, it's a familiar subject matter but no less impactful. Watch the music video below.
Yesterday, the band posted a teaser on Instagram with the caption, "Clear your schedules... this time tomorrow (7 am AEDT) our new single Show Me Your God will be available on all streaming platforms. Don't worry, we'll remind you!" followed by details for their TikTok handle.
Today's news follows vocalist Joel Birch's teasing on social media last week. He gifted fans with the following information: the Aussie metalcore band's eighth album is done! "New album finished. Mixed. Done," Birch tweeted. He added, "[it's the] Heaviest music we've ever written."
Well, colour us excited! The vocalist also replied to fans who inquired album the upcoming album. One person asked, "heavier than [the band's 2010 album] Youngbloods?" to which Birch responded, "Makes Youngbloods sound like [2018 album] Misery".

He then hinted that The Amity Affliction might play a new tune at Good Things Festival, which kicks off THIS FRIDAY, when someone asked for a "sneaky song" at the festival, preferably "the heaviest one". Birch answered, "Not the heaviest one but a heavy one nonetheless". Show Me Your God debut in Melbourne - which just sold out?!
The track tails an exciting year for The Amity Affliction, who went on a sold-out national tour in July to support their latest album, Everyone Loves You… Once You Leave Them.
Last year, the band released the Somewhere Beyond The Blue EP. They will cap off 2022 performing at Good Things Festival alongside Bring Me The Horizon, Deftones, NOFX, Gojira and more.
