The Amity Affliction Lead New Album With Dark ‘Ivy (Doomsday)’ Video
Album six from Australia's The Amity Affliction is officially on the way. Misery will be released on Aug. 24 through Roadrunner Records and the band has released a cinematic music video for the lead single, "Ivy (Doomsday)."
The clip takes the approach of a film with a narrative playing out across nearly eight minutes and that's only part one of three planned installments. Written and co-directed by the band's co-frontman Joel Birch, the video follows the story of three friends embroiled in conflict as one man beats another to death at a pool hall. "Ivy (Doomsday)" enters the scene after a couple minutes, dropping out and returning later on while more scenes play out.
Misery was recorded in Baltimore, Md. with producer Matt Squire (Panic! At The Disco, Ariana Grande, Underoath) and is the first album from The Amity Affliction since 2016's This Could Be Heartbreak. The record marked the band's second entry into the Billboard 200, giving them their highest debut at No. 26.
