 Cleveland’s newest rising stars Affiance dropped their highly anticipated new single “You WIll Be Replaced" TODAY! Coinciding with the release is a worldwide premiere of the song at Alternative Press. The new song was produced by Carson Slovak at Atrium Audio who has recently finished records for August Burns Red, Texas In July, and more!  The song is an absolute behemoth (and currently #6 on the iTunes Metal Chart!) and will no doubt hold fans over until their sophomore album to be released later this year.  The new song can be downloaded at iTunes, Amazon, LastFM, eMusic and Rhapsody, and streamed at Spotify!
Singer Dennis Tvrdik commented on “You WIll Be Replaced”, “To be honest, we are pissed off. This song is a message to everyone who has slammed doors in our faces or tried to hold us back. “Your taunts have only increased our pace.” It’s the beginning of the end.  We feel this is the best song we have written and we’re excited to finally share it with our fans, and hope it will cure any confusion about what type of band we are or what genre we belong in. It’s far more metal and a more fine-tuned version of our best stuff from our first album, No Secret Revealed.”
 Affiance recently appeared AS A CARTOON (yes, a cartoon) in a new interview with South Africa’s MK Ondergrond! The interview appeared on national SA television but can be seen on YouTube along with recent interviews with In Flames and The Used.  Singer Dennis Tvrdik talks about their hometown of Cleveland, the metal and hardcore scenes, touring, music videos, and more. Check it out!
 The guys launched their new music video for “Nostra Culpa" this Spring and it is available on YouTube! The video showcases the band doing what they do best, and that is performing LIVE. Check them out in front of a packed headlining set at Peabody’s in their hometown of Cleveland!  Of course if you haven’t seen their groundbreaking music video for “Call To The Warrior" (400,000+ views), you need to watch it immediately!
 Affiance have recently wrapped up US tours with Memphis May Fire, Close Your Eyes, Serianna, The Color Morale, Stray From The Path, Vanna, This Or The Apocalypse and Deception Of A Ghost.  Their debut album “No Secret Revealed" is out now on Bullet Tooth.

 Affiance have just wrapped up their new music video for “Nostra Culpa" and it is available NOW on YouTube! The video showcases the band doing what they do best, and that is performing LIVE. Check them out in front of a packed headlining set at Peabody’s in their hometown of Cleveland!
 Singer Dennis Tvrdik commented on the video, “The September 30th show in Cleveland was the best and most exciting show we have played to date! We packed it out with around 600 people and told them to ‘show the world what Cleveland is all about’. The entire front half of the crowd sang every word with me and it felt amazing. Our good friend John Stanchina shot the video and we trusted it would come out great (Stanchina also shot the Call To The Warrior video). We chose Nostra Culpa because it was our “short, sweet, metal” song that’s one of our favorites to play live. Plus it’s one of our favorites lyrically, speaking about the de-humanization of mankind through progress in technology. Nostra Culpa meaning “our fault”, is inspired by an Albert Einstein quote as well as the book “The Abolition Of Man” by C.S. Lewis.”
 Affiance are excited to announce “The Warriors Tour" featuring special guests Serianna (Bullet Tooth), Us From Outside (Tragic Hero) and Sirens And Sailors (Tragic Hero), presented by Bullet Tooth, KillerTours, Tragic Hero, Jakprints, Music Choice, Alternative Press, MerchNow, Hot Topic, Outburn, Guitar World, and Thrust Mgmt.

What else can you say about Affiance? This band is going to be the biggest metal act to come out of Cleveland in a long while and it’s easy to see why. With superb singing (that’s right singing, very few screams) that would make the likes of Rise Against envious, Affiance brought it. They were there to shoot a video, they were there to headline a packed show for a broad spectrum of Cleveland concert-goers, and they definitely knew it. I swear the crowd made more noise for the vocalists warm up then they did at almost any other point during the show.




Cleveland loves Affiance and Affiance loves Cleveland; that much was clear. I could hardly hear the band over the crowd singing along with Nostra Culpa as they filmed the video, and that’s a statement because they played LOUD. Dennis Tvrdik is a true front man, with enough charisma and skill to win over even metal-haters. His range is unprecedented within the genre and the guy just makes you wish you could sing like that!
There are no gimmicks here, relatively few break downs, nothing flashy but Tvrdik’s insane power metal yells. This is a solid band from top-to-bottom with an old-school style and new-school sound, what’s not to like?
