The Amity Affliction Welcome New Drummer


The Amity Affliction have welcomed Defeater drummer Joe Longobardi to their line-up in a full-time role. He takes over the spot in the previously held by Ryan Burt, who exited the band this past February to address his mental health.

Speaking of Longobardi joining the fold, the band issued the below statement:

“We’re over the moon that we can finally announce our long time friend Joe Longobardi will be joining Amity on a full time basis. We’ve been speaking with Joe for a long, long time, however his touring commitments with Defeater meant that he couldn’t join as soon as we wanted him to.

Fast forward to recording, Joe came into the studio and absolutely smashed it, and we had a fucking amazing time with him there. We offered him the spot again, and lucky for us he said yes.

We’ve been wanting to spill the beans for ages now because we are so so psyched that he’s with us now moving forward.

Give him a warm welcome please; in his own words, let’s fucking GO.”

North American fans can catch the band out in early January with Senses Fail, Silent Planet and Belmont on this tour.
