THE AMITY AFFLICTION are complete again and have a permanent Drummer in the Band, after the long-time drummer Ryan Burt was dropped out in February 2018, due to his mental illness out of the Band. New to the boilers of the Australian Post-Hardcore-Formation sits Joe Longobardi, drummer for the American Melodic Hardcore Band DEFEATER, who is also the current Album "Misery" introduced drums and is now firmly in the Band.THE AMITY AFFLICTION comment on the entry by Joe Longobardi as follows:
"We are overjoyed to finally announce that our longtime friend Joe Longobardi THE AMITY AFFLICTION on a full time basis join. We talked for a long, long time with Joe, but because of his tour commitments with DEFEATER, he couldn't bump so quickly to us, as we would have wanted.
We fast-forward to the shots, Joe came to the Studio and has us destroyed absolutely, and we had a hell of a more exciting time with him. We have offered him the place again, and, fortunately for us, he said 'Yes'.
We wanted to spill the beans for ages, because we are so psyched that we can now move him forward.
Give him a warmly welcome, please; in his own words: Let's fucking GO.“
