Affiance posterCleveland’s Affiance are currently on the road with Protest The Hero and have just announced their first tour of South Africa to kick off March 22, 2014! Dates are below. Singer Dennis Tvrdik checked in from the road to say, “We never thought we would have the opportunity to play music overseas, let alone in Africa! Super excited to explore and experience South Africa for the first time.” Tickets are on sale this Wednesday the 27th through, as well as at CompuTicket outlets and Checkers stores in SA.  Affiance Live In South Africa is sponsored by MK Ondergrond, Music Connection, and Plug Music.

AFFIANCE just released their brand new music video for “We The Machines” off their newest album “The Campaign”!  Watch it NOW at YouTube.  The video was directed by Stephen Mlinarcik, the director responsible for their latest videos “The Cynic” and “Kings Of Deceit“.  Singer Dennis Tvrdik commented, “We were sitting on this video we had made back in the spring for We The Machines and we didn’t know if it was ever going to be released. Then it hit me that we should just put it out there for the fans as a thank you for all the support with the our Indiegogo campaign.  We are honored to have such devoted fans that they would help us get a new touring vehicle, the least we can do is put some new media out.”

Cleveland’s AFFIANCE are currently on tour in the US with Protest The Hero, Architects, and The Skindred until December 15! All dates are below. This tour follows up Affiance’s recent US run with Killswitch Engage and Darkest Hour that gained them a HUGE new fanbase.

Singer Dennis Tvrdik commented on the tour, “So many of our fans have been wanting this to happen for years and now it finally happened!  This couldn’t be a better tour for us to follow the last one we did with Killswitch Engage. We are just excited to be on another really solid tour with not only great bands, but bands we are actually fans of.”

The new Affiance album “The Campaign” has had a successful first few months! Some great sales numbers have charted them at #7 Heatseekers, #7 Top New Artist, #37 Top Hard Albums, and #53 Top Indie Albums. Singer Dennis Tvrdik commented, “We are absolutely stoked that we charted on Billboard! Our fans are insanely supportive and believe in us not only as a band but as people. Thank you to everyone who bought The Campaign. We are forever grateful!”

Dennis Tvrdik commented on the new album (Produced by Carson Slovak at Atrium Audio who has recently finished records for August Burns RedTexas In July), “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 have recently wrapped up US tours with Killswitch Engage, The Word Alive, Memphis May Fire, Darkest Hour, Dance Gavin Dance, Miss May I,  Serianna, The Color Morale, Stray From The Path, Vanna, This Or The Apocalypse and Deception Of A Ghost.
