Matty Amendola : Modern DrummerWhat’s up, Modern Drummer community! It’s been almost a year since I wrote my last blog, and in that time I’ve been playing a lot of drums. My last entry was about my debut solo album, = Ecstasy, and I’d like to thank everyone for all the positive response and support. Besides working on my solo music, I’ve been keeping pretty busy behind the kit, doing studio work and playing live frequently with a few different bands. Check out an album called Vaudeville by Weird Old America–it features some pretty hard-hitting material! I also recently coproduced and played drums on rapper G.i.C.’s full-length debut, The Chapters Of Life.

The reason I blog today is to inform you that I am super-hyped about my second and latest solo album, Life Commercials. It’s now available on iTunes and all major digital outlets.

You can go behind the scenes and check out my documentary “The Making Of Life Commercials” at
