Yeah, it wasn’t meant to, I was going to be writing other stuff, then Warped Tour happened and I kind of found myself back in pretty much the same place as I was for Youngbloods. I wrote all the new songs in a bit more personal way than they were on Chasing Ghosts.

Another Warped Tour ... another year of beef between bands. The Amity Affliction frontman, Joel Birch, is caught on video (in the replies) openly berating Memphis May Fire's vocalist Matty Mullins. It appears it may have had something to do with this tweet?
During The Amity Affliction's set at Warped Tour in Portland a few days ago, the band's drummer sustained an injury while performing. A piece of his drumstick chipped off going right into his cornea which caused a cut and required immediate eye surgery. The band did not perform at today's Warped Tour set in San Diego however they are expected to return in Pomona tomorrow. Chad from Glass Cloud will fill in behind the kit for the rest of the tour. We wish Ryan from The Amity Affliction a speedy recovery.
