The Skinny: Affiance are excited to launch the worldwide stream of their new song “The Final Countdown”. Fans have seen the band play the song live and have been BEGGING them to record it, so they did, and here it is. Said vocalist Dennis Tvrdik: “We wanted to do a song that everyone would know no matter what their age or favorite music. We also wanted to do a song that most other bands in our genre couldn’t pull off, allowing us to show off our abilities. If we do any more covers, they will most definitely be songs that showcase vocal talent and sweet solos like this one. Yeah it’s cheesy, but that’s what makes it fun!”

Hot off the heels of their newest single “You Will Be Replaced”, the band is gearing up for the release of their highly anticipated full length album The Campaign due out on Bullet Tooth on November 13, 2012. The album was produced by Carson Slovak at Atrium Audio who has recently finished records for August Burns Red, Texas In July, and more! The new song is an absolute behemoth (and hit #6 on the iTunes Metal Chart!) and will no doubt hold fans over until their sophomore album The Campaign is released.

Singer Dennis Tvrdik commented on the upcoming album: “The Campaign is multiple levels above No Secret Revealed in every area. The vocals, the drums, the guitars, the recording quality, the song structure, the variety… We couldn’t be happier or more confident with a sophomore album. It almost feels like we skipped a release between the two albums! There is not a doubt in my mind that this will be a game changer for us and will open many doors to opportunities otherwise closed off from us.”
