Time for some Aussie appreciation.

The Amity Affliction announced a new album this week, which got us thinking about how bands from down under rule right now. Like these guys...

THE AMITY AFFLICTION
With the release of their fifth album 'This Could Be Heartbreak' and an abundance of festivals - including Slam Dunk and Download - coming up, The Amity Affliction are doing alright for themselves.



HANDS LIKE HOUSES
The band released their new album 'Dissonants' earlier this year, and head back to the UK for a headline headline tour with I The MightyDead! and The Gospel Youth next week.

Check out their new video for 'Degrees Of Separation' below.



NORTHLANE
Vocalist Marcus Bridge has fully settled in since he joined the band in 2014 and they released their latest album 'Node' the following year. The band played Impericon Festival last month and return to the UK for this year's Slam Dunk Festival.



HELLIONS
The last week of May will be a busy one for this lot, as they are set to support Of Mice & Men and Nortlane on their shows surrounding Slam Dunk Festival, which they were added to this week.



OCEAN GROVE
What a great, weird band.




PARKWAY DRIVE
Huge shows, massive festival appearances... what more is there to be said about this band?



Not bad, eh?
