Lineup changes

We'd like to announce the departure of our rhythm section, drummer Brian Serzynski and bassist Bubba Nitz. They both left the band following the last tour with Ambassador Gun. Also leaving is guitarist Logan Kelly. You can catch Bubba rockin' guitar in his band Short Walk, and Logan rockin' guitar in his band Blue Ox and bass in Much Worse. We wish them all the best of luck with their future endeavors.

With that being said, we'd like to announce the addition of drummer Andy Hurley (Fall Out Boy, Racetraitor, Kill the Slavemaster, etc.) and bassist Amanda Daniels. Andy released the first Enabler LP "Eden Sank to Grief" on his label FC Records in 2010, and has been a fan of what we are doing ever since. Former Enabler guitarist Ben Willkommen will be rejoining the group temporarily and helping out with shows. Robby Wright (Paralyzer, Black Dove, One Nation Under, etc.) will be filling in on drums for the upcoming Canadian / US tour with Mares of Thrace since Andy will be touring with his band The Damned Things. We are very excited to have all of these people involved with this band now.

Enabler also has a brother band with all of the same people called Sleeping Corpses. Sleeping Corpses is to Enabler what the light side of the force is to the dark side. Right now, we're sitting on about 10 new Enabler songs and 9 Sleeping Corpses songs. We will be recording for both projects and announcing new releases soon enough.

Enabler is on the lookout for a permanent second guitarist (the position has been a revolving door since day one). Serious inquiries should be sent to

Check out the first shows with the new lineup:

7/28 Milwaukee WI @ Cactus Club w/ The Swan King, Git Some
7/29 Chicago IL @ The Horseshoe w/ Thieves (Record Release), Former Thieves
7/30 Indianapolis IN @ The Hoosier Dome - DUDE FEST
