SEEKING

Lead Guitar.

ABOUT

Having taken a small break this year we are currently seeking a lead guitar player to replace our current one (who is going back to Italy), to record a second forthcoming EP of fresh original material, some of which has been written. We also intend to play some live dates in London between March and September this year. We're ideally looking for someone who wants to stick around for live nationwide gigs following the EPs release. Demo versions of songs for the EP are available on request.

We operate as a 4 piece with 2 guitars. Myself on vocals and guitar, Amy – drummer (bvs), Giorgio – bass player (bvs) and the second guitarist who we are currently seeking.

We're ideally after someone who is happy to play both big riffs and guitar lines, in the vein of Interpol or Depeche Mode while also happy to play more subtle lead parts that aren't necessarily the main hook. Adaptability in your playing style is a massive bonus.

We play post punk / alternative rock with a big sound. At least we like to think so. Spotify and social links can be found below

Thanks for taking the time to read the ad. We look forward to hearing from you.
