SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Just a guy in Delaware looking for other musicians to jam with. I am willing to play a bunch of metal genres including death metal, black metal, sludge, doom, nu-metal, deathcore/metalcore, etc. I'm also open to playing various pop/rock styles including shoegaze, alt rock, indie, (midwest) emo, and also pop punk.
I have previously played in an alt rock band and a pop punk band in the past and have some years of playing in venues. As long as you're cool with someone bringing a 7-8 string to practice and shows I'm pretty flexible with playing different styles.
Note: I'm not interested in playing in tribute bands. I enjoy playing covers from time to time but I want to write music with others and have that be the focus.
