Stream New Single “The Final Countdown

Tour with Modern Day Escape & Deception Of A Ghost starts Friday

New Album “The Campaign” to drop November 13!

Affiance are excited to launch the worldwide stream of their new song “The Final Countdown“!  Fans have seen the band play the song live and have been BEGGING them to record it, so they did, and here it is.   “We wanted to do a song that everyone would know no matter what their age or favorite music.  We also wanted to do a song that most other bands in our genre couldn’t pull off, allowing us to show off our abilities. If we do any more covers, they will most definitely be songs that showcase vocal talent and sweet solos like this one. Yeah it’s cheesy, but that’s what makes it fun!” – Dennis Tvrdik (Vocals)

Hot off the heels of their newest single “You WIll Be Replaced“, the band is gearing up for the release of their highly anticipated full length album “The Campaign” due out on Bullet Tooth on November 13, 2012. The album was produced by Carson Slovak at Atrium Audio who has recently finished records for August Burns RedTexas In July, and more!  The new song is an absolute behemoth (and hit #6 on the iTunes Metal Chart!) and will no doubt hold fans over until their sophomore album “The Campaign” is released.  The new song “You WIll Be Replaced” can be downloaded at iTunesAmazonLastFMeMusic and Rhapsody, and streamed at Spotify!

Singer Dennis Tvrdik commented on the upcoming album, “The Campaign is multiple levels above No Secret Revealed in every area. The vocals, the drums, the guitars, the recording quality, the song structure, the variety… We couldn’t be happier or more confident with a sophomore album. It almost feels like we skipped a release between the two albums! There is not a doubt in my mind that this will be a game changer for us and will open many doors to opportunities otherwise closed off from us.”

Affiance (Bullet Tooth) and Modern Day Escape (Standby Records) will co-headline a US tour starting this Friday with special guests Deception Of A Ghost (Bullet Tooth) and Picture Me Broken (Standby Records). The tour is sponsored by KillerTours, Bullet Tooth, Standby, Artery, AMP, Hails & Horns, Mesa, ESP and Powell Drums. See all dates below.

Affiance recently appeared AS A CARTOON (yes, a cartoon) in a new interview with South Africa’s MK Ondergrond! The interview appeared on national SA television but can be seen on YouTube along with recent interviews with In Flames and The Used.  Singer Dennis Tvrdik talks about their hometown of Cleveland, the metal and hardcore scenes, touring, music videos, and more. Check it out!

The guys launched their new music video for “Nostra Culpa

this Spring and it is available on YouTube! The

video showcases the band doing what they do best, and that is performing LIVE.

hometown of Cleveland!

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
