KISW Metal Shop Presents: Silverstein & The Amity Affliction with guests Holding Absence, and UnityTX at The Showbox on Wednesday, August 31, 2022.
For the past two decades, Silverstein have relentlessly pushed themselves to become the best version of the band for both themselves and their fans. That determination has led the Ontario-based five-piece from their underground roots to becoming one of the most influential bands in their scene, playing two thousand-plus shows all over the globe, and selling over a million records.
The Brisbane post-hardcore act Amity Affliction were formed in 2002 by a bunch of longtime pals, still high schoolers at the time, who had been affected by the death of their teenage friend in a road accident. The band, initially a quartet, released a demo in 2003 and an EP in 2004, but did not start making waves in earnest until some time later. In 2005, after the screamer Joel Birch joined the fold, Amity Affliction went on a touring spell, working up a nationwide reputation as a powerful live band. In 2007, they added keyboard player Trad Nathan and switched drummers, with Ryan Burt replacing Lachlan Faulkner, and then hit the studio to record the EP High Hopes, followed in 2008 by the debut album Severed Ties, which peaked at number 26 on the ARIA charts.
