The Amity Affliction are getting in under the wire with their final release of 2021. The band drops the heavily hypnotic new track "Death Is All Around Us" just as their limited edition 7" EP Somewhere Beyond the Blue arrives as well.

"Death Is All Around" features a blend of brutally crushing moments with a mix of rough and melodic vocals. Taking inspiration from the events of the past two years, the band states, "We’re deep into a pandemic that won’t go away with lockdowns still happening here in Australia and no touring in sight, it’s a hopeless situation and one that inspired the lyrics in this song."

Get a closer look at the lyrics and listen to the track below.

The Amity Affliction, "Death Is All Around"

I am either head in the clouds
Or six feet underground
I just can’t get ahead of myself
When no one is around

You wanna know what love is to me
It’s barely holding on
And gritting my teeth
Knowing what I hold
Is more precious than gold

I call
I call
And I hear you
Can you feel me
I am so down
Can you feel me drown

I fall
I fall
I don’t hear you
Can you feel me
There is no sound
Death is all around

I’m still thinking of the end most days
In my sleep I call out your name
I hope you can forgive the shame
Of living with one foot In an early grave

There is not a sound
Death is all around
Can you feel me drown
Death is all around
