The Amity Affliction - 07.29.13

Interviewed by
The Amity Affliction - 07.29.13Australian metalcore band The Amity Affliction is currently on the Vans Warped Tour, playing alongside bands such as letlive. and Like Moths To Flames on the Monster Energy stage. I was able to do a quick emailer to check in with bassist/background vocalist Ahren Stringer and see how they've been thus far on the tour. You can pick up their most recent album, Chasing Ghosts, here.

How's the tour been going for you guys now that you're in past the first few weeks or so? I know Seattle and Portland showed you guys quite a bit of love, you were all smiles for sure.

It's been amazing for us so far, by far the best response we've had, this being our 5th American tour. I really couldn't be happier about it. The crowd sing-a-longs especially.

Do the larger crowds youre pulling on this tour remind you of the environment that you're used to back home?

Definitely, it's a wonderful feeling knowing you're so far from home and still having such loyal fans.

What bands have you gotten to see lately? Anyone you hadn't heard of before?

We're all really big Defeater fans so its a huge privilege to be able to watch and share the stage with them every day. Also our good friends in Architects who we're sharing a bus with, and letlive. are also dear friends of ours and a great band to watch live.

Who have you been hanging out with on the tour? Anyone you haven't met before?

We always meet new friends, too many to list really, but mainly: Letlive, Architects, While She Sleeps, Like Moths To Flames, and Bring Me The Horizon. Basically most of the bands on the monster stage, haha.

What kind of things have you been taking photos on during this tour? If Im not mistaken youre hitting a few new places on this tour.

I mean its pretty much Groundhog Day and we don't really get a chance to leave the festival once we're there so it's not the best tour for sightseeing. I'd love to do a tour of America someday and not play shows just so I can see it all properly.

How is Ryan doing right now? I know he got injured in Portland and went back home. It must've been really difficult for him, especially so early in the tour.

Yeah it was a real spanner in the works, he's a great drummer and it was just a freak accident. But he's doing fine now resting up back home in Australia.

I know Chad Hasty from Glass Cloud jumped in to fill-in, even though he was doing something else already on the tour. Luckily he was already somewhat familiar with your band since youve toured together in the past, but how have the shows been with him?

Well, Chad was already riding on our bus, drum-teching for Ryan so it was a no brainier. He's also an amazing drummer and close friend of ours, so that was the silver lining to the whole situation. We're extremely lucky to have him on board.

The new music video for Green's Avenue just recently came out. First off, can you explain the meaning behind the song, and then talk about your experience filming the video?

Well, Joel put it all together from tour footage and I guess we just wanted a real down to earth, honest video. And he also writes all the lyrics but I guess the song is his way of saying sorry to some people he may have let down in the past and that he's grateful he's still here with them.

What sort of books have you been reading lately?

I know these questions are for Joel haha. Calvin and Hobbes.

If you could cover any song by a band on the tour, what song what it be and why? I think itd be cool to see Architects (UK) cover a song of yours and then you guys cover a song of theirs.

Funny you should ask that, there is a plan in the works for every band on the Monster stage to cover each others songs 2 weeks from now. We're doing Defeater The Red, White and Blues. I'm not sure who is doing us.

I know youre back here in the States in the fall/winter, can you shed some light on who youll be with? If not, perhaps a hint?

That's more than I know!

Anything else you'd like to add?

Fuck the police!

Joel was in the hospital, so it wasn't able to be addressed. I did ask though.

Really want to know more about that Monster stage cover day. Sounds awesome, even though I'm not crazy about any of the bands. Cool idea, would be fun if it caught on.
