will release their seven-song, crowdfunded EP Gaia
on March 11
. The band has premiered the title track over at Revolver
. Check it out here
“The title track is very much the general theme of the EP,” said vocalist Dennis Tvrdik. “If we keep this course, we will destroy ourselves. We can’t survive if we don’t respect our home. Though it may come off as a cheesy ‘global warming’ song, it has more to do with the overall disregard of how our actions today will impact society for the next generation.”
To celebrate the release and as a special token of their enormous sense of gratitude towards their core local fanbase, Affiance will play their first-ever, free hometown show at the Agora Ballroom in Cleveland, Ohio on the EP release date.
ICYMI: Affiance have also released “PRSVR,” the first song from the EP. Listen to ithere.
Pre-orders bundles for Gaia are available now via MerchNow.
Affiance are part of the new breed of melodic metal bands that have been propelling the genre forward in this decade. They have a critical connection to their fans, who instantly responded to their Indiegogo campaign, helping the band to reach its campaign goal quickly.
Following the success of the crowdfunded campaign, the band solidified its relationship with Outerloop Management, which has a rich history in helping developing artists.
