Here on the BandMix player or https://soundcloud.com/restrunglefty...please take a listen to tracks off my first album "Self-Evident Truths" to get a feel of what we're going for. I'd call these rock songs with notable progressive elements. Driving sections interspersed with unusual time signatures and chording. Guitar-centric, melodic, socially conscious, riff-oriented. Lead guitarist is already on board and we can both sing strong backups. Ideally we're looking for a rock vocalist who can play great rhythm guitar (this will not just be strumming chords and you may need to play some leads), drummer with better chops than the recordings that can make the instrument a true voice in the song, not just a time keeper. Goals? Collaboratively work on another album, play appropriate venues regionally on a monthly (or more?) basis, make enough money that it all pays for itself. Enjoy each other's company and making/performing our music. We're steady, down-to-earth guys who have life under control and can be counted on to speak plainly and do what we agree to and we're looking for the same.
