REACHING HEIGHTS: The Amity Affliction’s new album Let The Ocean Take Me has reached number on in the Aria Charts.

GYMPIE metalcore act The Amity Affliction's success is only going up right now, and even higher with the release of their fourth studio album Let The Ocean Take Me.

The album, released on June 6, rose to the top of this week's Aria album charts, making it all the way to number one ahead of Passenger's newest release Whispers.

"Thanks so much for helping us get Let The Ocean Take Me to number one in Australia!" the band said via their Facebook page on June 16.

It is the second time the Gympie outfit has debuted at number one, the first time being their previous album Chasing Ghosts, released in 2012.

Yesterday it sat at number four on the iTunes charts behind the likes of Coldplay and Ed Sheeran.

The success follows the track Pittsburgh, first single release from the album, cracking number three in the iTunes singles charts in April.

The band have spent some of the past weeks travelling the country signing copies of the new album and are currently preparing for an Australian, North American and Europe in the coming months.

The band will tour Australia from August 29 to September 5, with concerts in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. The band, which includes original Gympie members Ahren Stringer and Troy Brady, will then tour North America between September and October before Europe for a November/December tour.
