We are a singer/lyricist, a guitar player and a bass player looking for a melodic hardcore punk rock drummer with pro gear and a pro attitude to join our new band. We have about 6 songs written so far with more in the works. We all contribute to the writing process and all try to have fun while doing it. We're respectful of others ideas and styles but are also open to constructive criticism and you should be too. We want someone that is committed to making the music collectively sound good. Not just getting their rocks off by rocking out. We're not looking for self glossing rock stars.
We each have about 15-20 years of experience playing and writing music and while we don't expect you to be Josh Freeze or Armand Majidi we do expect you to know your instrument, have some skills and be a solid musician. Our influences are mosty bands such as:
Bad Religion, Good Riddence, Strung Out, Sick Of It All, Rise Against, 88 Fingers Louie, , Avail, old Boy Sets Fire - the hardcore shit. Descendents, All, Pennywise, Gorilla Biscuts, Ignite, Pulley and LagWagon to name a few.
You must be reliable and avaiable to contact week to week, good communication is important to us and we need to be able to reach you. We've had our share of flakes. We do enjoy a drink or three but we don't go crazy, at least until after we've ether killed the crowed, finished recording, or finished practice. No hard drugs, weed is cool. You must have your own vehicle to transport your drums. We do plan to get a van for touring in the future. You must be available to practice at least once a week possibly twice depending on scheduling, We know we all have lives to live. You must be open to sharing a monthly practice space rent payment. We each pay about $60 per month but there is a grace period for trying out. Eventually we'd like to get out and tour with this band - northwest, west coast, then who knows. If you only want to play a few shows here and there around town we're not for you.
We all want to have a lot of fun in this band and we want you to have fun as well but more importantly we want to write fast, aggressive, substantive, through provoking music. We hope you can be the one to write it with us. If you're interested please reply to this ad.
