Brisbane’s The Amity Affliction are the latest band to release their own cover of a classic Silverchair song. As part of the “Spawn (Again): A Tribute To Silverchair” album, soon to be released by UNFD, Amity have been the latest addition to the tribute album with their cover of ‘Tomorrow’. The album is stacked with covers performed by some of the very best talent in the Australian alternative scene, including Hands Like Houses, Tonight Alive, and Northlane.
The intro of the song gives all the nostalgic feels of listening to the original version of the song; in the car on Triple M on the way home from school, jamming out to the coolest band of the time. The cover features Amity’s signature crisp guitar tone, complemented with catchy lead guitar hooks. Right from the get go, the track features angelic vocal melodies provided by bassist and clean vocalist Ahren Stringer, accompanied by Joel Birch’s distinguishable yelling vocals underneath, all adding a nice layering effect to the chorus. Amity are no strangers to creating covers which demonstrate their own creative take on popular songs, obvious with the recent release of their cover of ‘Cant Feel My Face’ by The Weekend. Old school Amity fans will also remember their cover of ‘Love Is A Battlefield’, which was a crowd favourite back in the day on their “Severed Ties” tour.
“Spawn (Again): A Tribute To Silverchair” is set for release on the 17th of November, and is still available for pre-order from your usual online stores HERE.
The Amity Affliction will be performing live at next year’s sold out UNIFY Gathering held at Tarwin Meadows, Gippsland, Victoria in January. With Unify Gathering locking in other big names such as Parkway Drive, Architects, Stick To Your Guns, Hellions, and many more it’s no surprise the festival has once again sold out.
