We have a jampacked special episode for you this week to celebrate The Amity Affliction‘s upcoming Heaven And Hell east coast tour featuring Underoath, Crossfaith and Pagan, who, all join the podcast for a chat.
The main event is The Amity Affliction‘s Ahren Stringer who discusses the band’s intentions with the Brisbane leg of the tour in which they’re hoping to turn the Heaven and Hell Festival into an annual event, if the punters get behind it. He also chats with podcast host Browny about the year that was the Misery saga and the strange, yet totally expected reactions fans had when they first heard the release, some disapproving of the drastic change in style, only for them to come back around the longer they sat on it. He also talks about the band’s future, the next release and he reflects on their earlier “glory” days (pun intended) and how far they’ve come since then.
Spencer Chamberlain of Underoath calls in to chat about their last appearance in Australia for UNIFY and why they didn’t make it to the west coast of Australia for their Erase Me album cycle. Kenta ‘Ken’ Koie from Crossfaith also reflects on their UNIFY set back in January and gives us all an insight into their partying lifestyle while Pagan frontwoman Nikki Brumen takes a look back at their hectic year which has seen them flying to dominate UK audiences, gain massive popularity in Australia and what direction they’ll be taking their next release (and if we’ll hear some new material on this tour).
Plus we play a stack of tracks from the above-mentioned bands and kick it all off with Thornhill‘s new song ‘Nurture‘, which no doubt fans will hear when they play alongside Trophy Eyes, Make Them Suffer, Southeast Desert Metal, Void of Vision and Endless Heights in Brisbane.
