Early Career and Side Projects

Rosamilia has stated that he has "totally superseded all expectations of what [he] wanted to do, as far as being in a band [is concerned]". Rosamilia has a huge fondness of The Cure, calling them "the best band ever" and claiming their album Disintegration is the "best record of all time".

His early career involved being in bands such as The Killing Gift, which also included drummer Benny Horowitz, now of The Gaslight Anthem. In more recent years he has been in the band Spiro Agnew which is essentially The Killing Gift line-up without a vocalist.

Hardcore and Metal Endeavours

Rosamilia has also done his fair share of heavier music stating that he "always wanted to be in a heavy band. For me it’s just fun to play, I’ll always be playing" and citing influence by "Converge, Botch, early Cave In, and of course the almighty At the Gates."

Something About Death or Dying

In 2010, Rosamilia started the hardcore metal band Something About Death or Dying and released a five-song digital only E.P. on 11 November 2010 with Darrell Coco, bassist of Spiro Agnew, vocalist Dan Pelic, and drummer Wes Kleinknecht.

Rosamilia and Pelic worked together again to form another metal project dubbed Servitude in 2013. However, it was not until July 2015 when the two debuted their first E.P. recording titled "No Foxhole Prayers" including Brad Clifford (formerly of Poison The Well and Sincebyman) on second guitar, Corey Perez (of Ensign and I Am The Avalanche) on bass and drummer Eric Schnee. The band seems to be purposefully limiting listeners to streaming No Foxhole Prayers for the time being by putting the album "up for sale for an ungodly $666 USD." The band's biography currently states that the album "will see a proper release through Rosamilia’s own Human Blood Records in Fall or Winter of 2015" and "future live shows will be booked as everyone’s schedules allow."

Non-Musical Endeavours and Personal Life

He is a football aficionado and frequently wears FC St. Pauli gear when performing. He also supports Major League Soccer in the United States and is a fan of the New York Red Bulls.
