SEEKINGBass Guitar, Drums.
Looking for a drummer and bassist for a brand new fast punk rock band, currently practicing and writing 1-2 times per week. If you can sing and can provide some vocals/backing vocals that's a bonus. Can be someone just to fill in so we can rehearse and record to start, or something more permanent. Doesn't need to be perfect drummer but have a decent ability with either double bass pedal or pretty fast single pedal ability, as well as capable of constant driving bass pedal. Bassist needs to have a reasonable ability but happy for you to grow and get better with the band.
Bands we have similarities with are NoFX, The Offspring, Strung Out, Four Year Strong. General tone is skate/political punk sometimes lighter, sometimes with a heavier more melodic twist. We're pretty open to other genres and mixing genres but the above is the general type of things we sit under.
Currently we are two guitarists who have been writing originals during lockdown with a view to gigging around the Hastings to Brighton area. We'll probably do a mix of originals and covers to start. We have about 4-5 songs nearly finished (except drums) and quite a few more bits and bobs to pull together when time. We have a general idea for the drums and can write them for it but would prefer someone who can come in and add their own touches and flair. Bass lines are not set as they are either so happy for someone to come in and add their own touches.
We both work full time but are committed to working on the band with as much free time as we have available. We plan weekly meet-ups/rehearsal time.
Both current members live around the Eastbourne-Golden Cross area.
