AFFIANCE is an American Metal Band from Cleveland, OH. Reigning in the powerful midwest attitude, AFFIANCE combines elements that tear from the sleeve of metal legends with powerful guitar riffs and soaring vocals. Since starting their touring career in 2010, the band has completed many North American, European, and UK tours. Most recently, the band wrapped up a full US tour with KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and another with PROTEST THE HERO, as well as their first international headliner in South Africa. They been working diligently all year on their newest release “BLACKOUT” set to debut September 23, 2014 on Bullet Tooth.
Singer Dennis Tvrdik commented, “We are still a relatively small band in a very big metal world and we hope to change that with this album. BLACKOUT is a bit darker than our previous albums, and I think it’s time for heavy music with melodies to make its presence known in American metal culture. I am proud to be a part of that.”
The first single from “Blackout” (Produced by Carson Slovak at Atrium Audio who has recently finished records for August Burns Red and Texas In July) is titled “Limitless” and is streaming below . The band is filming a music video for the song “Fire” and will premiere in the coming weeks.
Brett Wondrak (Guitar) commented on the new album, “Blackout is another step forward for us. We wrote this album to give our fans everything they expect from us and more. All the catchy guitar licks, crushing breakdowns, shredding solos, and memorable high notes that Dennis is so well known for. These are some of the best songs we’ve ever written. This has been a great year for metal. “Blackout” will be no exception.”
The most recent AFFIANCE album “The Campaign” had a successful album cycle! Great support from the WARRIORS (Affiance fans) charted them on Billboard (#7 Heatseekers, #7 Top New Artist, #37 Top Hard Albums, and #53 Top Indie Albums).
AFFIANCE have recently wrapped up North American and European tours with Killswitch Engage, Protest The Hero, The Word Alive, Memphis May Fire, Darkest Hour, Dance Gavin Dance, Miss May I, The Color Morale, and Stray From The Path.
