Affiance is an American metalcore band from Cleveland, Ohio, formed in 2007. They released one EP prior to their debut album No Secret Revealed, which was released on label Bullet Tooth Records in December 2010. Vocalist Dennis Tvrdik sings of political and religious issues, often pushing his voice to surprisingly high ranges. He explains the band's nature: "We are a band that strongly believes in the pursuit of truth and happiness. In order to achieve these ideals we must delve into concepts and that we often don't want to think about. We hope that through our music we can inspire people to think for themselves and be pro-active in society.
