The Amity Affliction Part Ways With Drummer Ryan Burt

The Amity Affliction have parted ways with Ryan Burt. The group says the drummer “has been fighting some mental demons of late” and that “it has been a major struggle for him on the road.” This news comes after Burt previously took a break in 2016, due to mental health struggles.


The band said the following:

“Hey Guys,

Regretfully we have to inform you that Ryan will no longer be performing or recording with The Amity Affliction. He joined the band in 2008 when he was 17 years old and we’ve gone through some amazing things together – recording five albums, touring the world and playing to crowds we only ever dreamed of.

Many of you are aware Ryan has been fighting some mental demons of late and took time off in late 2016 to seek help in overcoming these struggles. Unfortunately, it has been a major struggle for him on the road. It has been very hard for us to watch him go through this, but it has been even harder for him to get on stage and give his all for the fans and band each night. He has done this through adversity on the last few tours, which we have been very grateful for.

This has been a very hard thing for us all to accept, but ultimately the touring environment and spending long periods away from home and his support network is not the best place for him to be.

We want to thank Ryan for everything he has contributed to the band over the last nine years and we will make sure he is looked after going forward.

We are sure he will speak when he is ready, but we do ask everyone to respect his privacy at this time.

All our announced shows will go ahead as planned and we look forward to the future.

If anyone is experiencing any mental health issues, we implore you to reach out to professionals such as Headspace, Hope For The Day or Beyond Blue.

Love TAA”


The Amity Affliction Stream Cover Of Silverchair’s “Tomorrow”

The Amity Affliction are streaming their cover of Silverchair’s “Tomorrow.” The track will be featured on the new Silverchair tribute album, “Spawn (Again): A Tribute To Silverchair,“ which will be available on November 17.

Ahren Stringer commented:

“I was obsessed with “Frogstomp” as a 12-year-old boy. I wanted to be Daniel Johns. ‘Tomorrow’ was the hit and what the world heard first, and still is the hit of their career, in my opinion.”
