Brisbane’s very own The Amity Affliction are dominating the globe right now, especially in the States, so it’s no surprise their latest music video for single “All Fucked Up” is set in the LA and was co-directed by unclean vocalist Joel Birch and Ryan Mackfall.
The video features a very fucked up Joel roaming the streets getting into all kinds of situations as he desperately tries to get hold of his bfff Ahren Stringer, clean vocalist and bassist for the band with is too busy hanging with letlive. frontman Jason Butler.
It also seems like the guys are getting use of their rental suits they had in the band’s first two videos from their latest release This Could Be Heartbreak with guitarist Dan Brown and drummer Ryan Burt performing briefly in a dive bar, a venue Amity haven’t played in since late 2010.
I don’t know about you but it seems the guys are moving away from their Australian roots and are trying to Americanize themselves, example of this can also be heard in the lyrics to “I Bring The Weather With Me” when the chorus sings “place the pennies on my eyes, I’ll sleep with the stars tonight” a funeral gesture not familiar to Aussie fans. Whether it’s intentional, or they’re just trying to crack it in the overseas market more and more, they’re showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
You can hear this (edited) new single on Triple M most nights being the band’s first commercially successful track to date. Here’s to more in future.
Until next time, rock the fuck out
