Their new album Misery came out on Friday (our review here) and The Amity Affliction have just released the next single from it ‘D.I.E.‘, which also marks the third and final installment of their Joel Birch penned Misery Saga via the song’s music video.
Part 1 ‘Ivy (Doomsday)‘ saw the band formulating a plan to rob a bank to seek revenge for some heinous crimes the manager committed. Part 2 ‘Feels Like I’m Dying‘ had the band carrying out the crime which (SPOILER ALERT) resulted in guitarist Dan Brown‘s character getting shot and the trio kidnapping the band manager. Part 3 sees the results of the crime and the fate of the band decided. I’ll come back to edit this part later in the week for those who want to watch the outcome for themselves #FuckSpoilers
