“Metal Warriors” AFFIANCE attend Aandklas

OMC_18_coverSmallMETAL band AFFIANCE hail from Ohio in the US. Their first tour to SA this March concludes with a performance at Sunfest 5 in Alberton.

Before that, though, they’ll be popping into Aandklas in Stellenbosch on 25 March. Along for the ride are SA metal acts Zombies Ate My Girlfriend and Arc Reactor.

AFFIANCE have appeared alongside familiar acts like Killswitch Engage, Protest the Hero, Architects and Darkest Hour.

The band was formed in 2007, and are known partly for their political and religious themes. Their debut album, No Secrets Revealed, was released on the Bullet Tooth Records label in December 2010.

According to the tour press release, Alter the Press! online music publication has described AFFIANCE as “a band that is engaging, melodic, and hard”. Rock Revolt Magazine declared: “What true rock and metal fans long for: melodic metal with soaring vocals and driving guitars.”

In South Africa, their hilarious Guitar Hero-themed music video for “Call to the Warrior” became a firm favourite on the popular alternative music programme, MK Ondergrond.
