Alright I'm not going to BS here and waste your time.

I am in the process of finishing up school. I'm in my last full time semester.

Right now, I am unable to commit myself to a full time band. However, that status is only temporary. I want to find people now so when late April/early May roles around, things will be in place. Once school is done, I will be turning music into my #1 priority.

Ok, so what kind of music do I want to play? Indie/underground rock with a whatever twist I feel like. Look at my influences. This isn't an X103 sound or cover band we're talking about here. Post-Hardcore Rock mixed with electronics, distortion, and crazy.

I have always been a drummer, but it really doesn't matter what intrument I'm on. Depending on the people that contact me, I'll change my role to suit what's best. I can be a drummer, keyboard, electronics man ,or vocals.

*I am looking for people to recruit for my own band. I'm really not looking to join another band or tryout for anyone.

One last thing, be at least 18 and try not to be over 30.

So you got a feel for what I am talking about here? You into the same type of music and possibly interested? Contact me at:
