Looking for a long term, dedicated bass guitarist that is reliable, has positive energy and is patient to form a new band that has interests of becoming successful, performing concerts and festivals and touring and creating our own music that is unique. The style of music is like Metallica, Iron Maiden, Avenge Sevenfold, Black Sabbath and Green Day, so anything heavy with potential to go clean when suitable. It is required that you know relevant theory such as knowing a variety of scales, as well as chord theory. Although a bass guitarist, it would be great to see a unique style of playing, such as melodic basslines that complement the rest of the song such as Steve Harris and Cliff Burton. As with any band member, cooperation and patience are important qualities, as well as selflessness (doing things that help the band and not because you want to do something).
We are in the beginning stages of writing the first album which we hope to release in winter 2022. This date isn't set in stone though as we want the album to be perfect so we have the best possible start.
Responsibilities and permissions include:
Creating basslines/ ideas for songs and contributing towards the song as a whole.
Offering suggestions to modify a song (whether it be specifically your bass parts or other instruments).
You will have an equal say in band decisions and nobody is the band 'leader' but part of the band and are treated equal. (This means any revenue is split 5 ways equally, each band member will get 1/5th and the last 1/5th will go directly back into the band.)
The ability to be vocal if you don't like a particular thing about the way something is done (if you prefer it to be done another way or don't like something).
Have the willingness to contribute financially towards the band (investing in band equipment and paying for 1/4 of studio sessions along with the other members).
Preferably have a rock/metal clothing style to suit the band and allow for good band photos. For example, leather jackets, dark clothes etc
Letting the other members know if you are unable to make it to a rehearsal/ session in advance.
Rehearsals will be held once a week for 3-4 hours per session (Open to negotiations for scheduling and setting the days)
This should go without saying but have a bass guitar (4 or 5 strings), an amp, cables and other things needed as a bass guitarist and maintaining your equipment/ instrument. (Have a guitar case for ease of transport).
Be on time to rehearsals.
Willing to dedicate a lot of time to the band
Have a good stage presence, or be willing to learn stage presence. Don't just stand there.
Have the ability to experiment with different styles/ key signatures/ scales.
Practice your instrument alone to improve and to become a better musician.
Have been playing for at least 2 years or close to it.
Ambition and Drive are the most important traits as we are aiming for the band to become long lasting and to be able to turn it into a career so we would be wanting someone who is willing to be in it for the long run
If you are interested in joining this band, embarking on a journey and potentially being famous, DM us @harveyjohnson_03 or @insurgenceband on Instagram. We will make a band groupchat for ease of communication.
