Our current drummer is preparing to move away, so we are currently seeking a drummer who has a steady sense of time as we are looking to expand into experimental and more progressive styles of rock/metal. Looking for someone who is not afraid to voice an opinion or offer creative direction, and someone who is willing to hit the ground running and learn quickly. All members are 30+ years old, with full time jobs, however we do take our music and progress seriously. We practice weekly, and we're hoping to resume gigging, including potential festival play, as well as work on recording an EP and full length and music video(es) as soon as our new drummer is up to speed.

Alchemic is a progressive hard rock band from Lawrence, Kansas. The band was formed in 2016 by guitarists Phil Lowry and Nathaniel Mayhew, and bassist Jerrett Strube, The band initially set out as an instrumental band, creating music that blends grunge rock with alternative and progressive metal. In early 2017, after agreeing that their music should include lyrics, the band expanded to include vocalist Josh Petty. They existed as a band for some time before they gave themselves a name, having only chosen the band’s name “Alchemic” after bassist Strube (a Chemist) suggested the name because the band had been naming all of their early songs after elements in order to keep track of them. A motley crue of nerds, all of the members of Alchemic have degrees and/or work careers in the science/engineering fields; Strube(Chemist), Lowry(Network Engineer), and Mayhew/Petty (both Mechanical Engineers).

Alchemic uses a harder approach to traditional alternative rock with semi-standard song structures, creative tones, and subtle dissonance to create a medium of sound for one to lose oneself in. Alchemic commonly performs at venues in the Lawrence, Topeka, and Kansas City areas.
