The Amity Affliction's latest album, Chasing Ghosts, topped the charts in their home country of Australia in the first week of release - an amazing achievement for such an uncompromising, heavy band. The group posted the following statement on their Facebook page:

"Holy shit, we can't even believe it. We just found out we hit NUMBER 1 on the ARIA Charts with Chasing Ghosts!!! This is absolutely overwhelming! To every single one of you, you guys made this happen for us and we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We never thought anything like this was ever within our reach so thank you once again! See you guys on tour!! X"
