The Amity Affliction has just released its new album Everyone Loves You… Once You Leave Them, and you can check out the new song "Forever" right now. Vocalist Joel Birch said the song is a personal one that details his promises to himself and dealing with mental illness.
"'Forever' is a song about the dueling internal narrative while in the depths of a depressive episode. On the one hand, love and support, on the other hand, thoughts of suicide, while also grappling with the follow-on effect it would have. I made a promise to myself to make it to my son's eighteenth birthday when he was three, and I intend to keep it. Hopefully by then I will have figured out how to properly cope with what is likely a lifelong battle with Bipolar II."
