The Amity Affliction's seventh album, Everyone Loves You... Once You Leave Them will be out on Feb. 21 and Loudwire is bringing you the exclusive premiere of the new single, "Catatonia."
There's a wondrous sense of duality present on this bruising track. Uplifting melodies and impassioned clean singing offer some reprieve to what's otherwise a vicious hardcore beat down on "Catatonia," which, lyrically, offers a sense of reflection and perseverance.
"If you listen carefully, you’ll hear this is a sister track to 'All My Friends Are Dead,'" said singer Ahren Stringer. "We wrote it to bookend the album and keep it heavy fuckin' metal. Lyrically, I think it ties the whole theme of the album together and wraps up what Joel [Birch] is trying to get across. Even though everything might seem perfect from the outside, sometimes being broken on the inside can never truly be fixed."
