The Brisbane, Australia-based metalcore/post-hardcore quintet known as The Amity Affliction, released their blaring new 10-song album, Let The Ocean Take Me, on June 6th, 2014 via Roadrunner Records. Comprised of members Joel Birch (vocals), Ahren Stringer (bass), Troy Brady (guitar), Ryan Burt (drums), and Dan Brown (guitar), this group is on their way up at an increasingly fast rate. Recently, we got some time with Joel Birch and decided to have some fun and ask him about his tattoos, here’s what he had to say.

British rockers I Divide are going to release their debut album, Last One Standing, on April 14th, 2014. This well-produced, glossy rock affair is sure to be a hit with hoards of fans all over (see the song “Follow Me” below for an example) thanks in large to its approachable yet high energy and fast-paced mix of rock and post-hardcore. Drummer Dave Mooney had some time on his hands recently and filled us in on some of his tattoos… check it out.
