Baltimore, MD: Saints of Rebellion names Anthony Hitaffer new Drummer.
Saints of Rebellion is excited to introduce the newest member to the band, Anthony Hitaffer. Hitaffer will replace original Saints of Rebellion drummer Ryche Green, who announced his departure from the band in July.
Anthony Hitaffer has performed across the Mid-Atlantic region as the drummer of Baltimore based power-trio Wasabi. Hitaffer cut his teeth as direct support for touring national acts such as The Misfits, Faster Pussycat, Adler’s Appetite, Sponge and Charm City Devils. Wasabi has also performed in several Maryland area festivals, including the inaugural Mid-Atlantic Rock Review Festival, the American Legion Armed Forces Day, Rock Harvest, the Baltimore Art Festival and Phoenix Festival. In December 2012, Wasabi played to a completely sold-out house opening for KIX at their annual Kix-Mas concert at Rams Head Live.
Anthony Hitaffer will be joining his brother, Saints of Rebellion bassist/keyboardist Jay Hitaffer. Together they form a synergetic rhythm section that will serve as the powerful driving force behind the band. “I am thrilled by this decision,” says Jay. “I’ve been playing on stage with Anthony for almost his entire life. Having Anthony on board as SOR’s drummer is a dream come true for me! He’s one of the best drummers I’ve ever worked with. His style and ability will make a huge impact on the colossal bottom end we need to complete our rhythm section. I mean, he’s my brother! You can’t get much tighter than that!”
“I am honored to be playing with SOR,” says Anthony. “I love these songs. I was in the rehearsal space when these songs were coming together, so I’ve been a huge SOR fan since the very beginning. I would like to extend my deepest thanks to the band and HighVolMusic for this opportunity. Music is my passion, and I am eager to be on tour playing music for audiences all over the country!”
Saints of Rebellion will be on tour promoting their recent album release, “New American Dream” this summer and fall.
