After full production of the track, guitarist Jason Anaya was recruited; and who would then transition into taking over the main writing aspect of the music. The songwriters continued to produce heavy works with relentless determination and ambition to form the sound that is ANHEDONIA. In the ensuing months, bassist Jose Jimenez (formerly of Salimus), was recruited to fill the next lineup slot for the band.
Working into 2018 with production of album material, it was then announced that Andrew Holzbaur (formerly of Oceano and The Devastated) would officially complete the lineup as drummer.
On September 7th 2018, the band released their first lyric video single for, "So Far Below" (FEAT Cody Fuentes & Josh Miller) via Chugcore Promotions, thus setting the punishing and unforgiving tone of the upcoming album titled, "Virulence".
The band continued into 2019 with a full studio recording and a list of shows booked to begin its hostile takeover. Now with the release of two more singles, Anhedonia has unveiled its fourth and first music video for the title track, "Virulence" premiered by Slam Worldwide - July 26th 2019.
