The Amity Affliction album ‘This Could Be Heartbreak’ will easily top the Australian albums chart this week but the reign may be short-lived.

As with their previous two albums ‘Chasing Ghosts’ (2012) and ‘Let The Ocean Take Me’ (2014) The Amity Affliction fans bought as soon up big as soon as ‘This Could Be Heartbreak’ was available guaranteeing a number one debut for the Queensland band on the Australian Albums chart.

The Amity Affliction is the 20th Australian act to have a number one album since September 2015.
