Australian post-hardcore band THE AMITY AFFLICTION has a big summer ahead of them.

In a weird twist of irony (or supreme comedy), the band also recruited photographer Hartley (Polar Bear Club) to travel with them to The Machine Shop (Lamb of God, King Crimson, Every Time I Die) to film a series of clips of the band recording Youngbloods. You can view those video clips here. http://vimeo.com/hartleyphoto/videos
That is not the only thing keeping the tattooed six-piece from Brisbane busy. In addition to the release of Youngbloods, the band is just days away from a tour, where they’ll hit the road with Misery Signals, Confession, and Flood of Red.
