ABOUT

Bedroom shredder looking to start a technical, energetic genre-bending rock band (think The Killers meets My Chemical Romance, on a speed metal and 80s synthpop binge). I've got a load of music written as a starting point for jamming, now looking for highly skilled musicians/singers who would be up for playing+writing together, and who are happy to experiment

Particularly seeking a drummer, co-lead guitarist/vocalist and bassist, but singers and keyboard players welcome as well! No age restrictions but 20somethings preferred. Don't care if we're from different musical backgrounds, I'd like to offset my metal tendencies more anyway

I'm an advanced lead guitar player and an ok singer. I have perfect pitch, a fair understanding of music theory and I'm good at improv and composition (for guitars/bass/drums/synths/vox), but I've not played much live at all.

I work full-time but can commit one night a week to rehearsing/gigging at a minimum. I want to get recording and gigging soon but would like to establish some musical chemistry first. Have car, will travel
