It’s been a hot minute since we’ve heard new music from the Amity Affliction. The Aussie metalcore legends last graced us with new tunes back in 2016 with This Could Be Heartbreak, the band’s third consecutive ARIA Number 1.
Now, it looks like the band could be teasing something big, with a series of cryptic social media posts. Last night, the band changed their Facebook profile picture to a blank image, featuring only a grainy blue veneer. Effectively, fans of the enduring act were sent into speculation mode as to what the switch up could mean.
This morning, the band posted a single link to www.theamityaffliction.net on their Facebook page in a status, which leads the user to a site that features a blank screen of the same colour as the new profile image. They also posted the same thing in a tweet.

Could this be our first look into the next era of the band? The band are set to head on tour Europe this October with fellow Aussies Endless Heights. Prior to that, the band are set play the final ever Warped Tour, alongside fellow Aussies In Hearts Wake and Tonight Alive.
The band headlined Unify Gathering earlier this year, where they performed a huge commemorative 15-year anniversary set. Earlier this year, drummer Ryan Burt departed the band to focus on his mental health.
Before we get a taste of new Amity music, refresh your memory of their last album with the single ‘This Could Be Heartbreak’.
