Earlier this year, a plethora of Australian groups got together for a tribute album for beloved trio Silverchair. The record, which is titled Spawn (Again): A Tribute To Silverchair, will be released worldwide this Friday. Metalcore group The Amity Affliction, who have three number one albums in their home country, decided to tackle Silverchair's first single "Tomorrow," which originally hit number one in Australia, New Zealand, and North America. Their take on the track was released yesterday. Other bands appearing on the tribute album include Tonight Alive, Hands Like Houses, and Northlane. Pre-orders for the album on CD and vinyl can be made here.
Later this month, The Amity Affliction will deliver their final tour of the year to Europe. From Nov. 26 to Dec. 3, the band will make their way to Austria, Germany, and Belgium with support from Alazka, Counterparts and Casey. From Dec. 5 through Dec. 13, the group will pay the U.K. and Ireland a visit with help from Boston Manor, Vukovi and Casey. Their entire tour routing can be seen below.
The group are promoting their latest studio album This Could Be Heartbreak, which peaked at number one on the Hard Rock Albums chart and number four on the Top Rock Albums chart.
