Yesterday, The Amity Affliction announced their seventh studio album, Everyone Loves You… Once You Leave Them, set for release on February 21.

“This album is a result of our re-found love for heavy music.” The band revealed in a joint statement.  “We wanted to make a heavier album to back up our most recent releases to let our fans know that we understand what the majority want to hear from us. We have experimented creatively over the years and are now able to apply what we’ve learnt to what we consider the perfect blend of Amity new and old.”

The band also dropped a fresh new single and music video, which you can check out below.
