ABOUT

Just moved back to South Jersey after wasting three years in Kentucky.

Looking for a bassist-vocalist and a drummer to form a punk/alternative power trio with dual vocalists in the same vein as Blink-182 or Alkaline Trio -- that is, one singer softer-toned (you) and the other more sharp-toned (me).

I have one demo almost completely done that I feel really encapsulates what I'd like our band to sound like -- it just needs lyrics + a melody for the bridge section -- and I'm working on a few other song ideas as well; I'd also like the person in the bass/vocals position to be able to collaborate with me on songs (especially if you can help finish that aforementioned demo) and bring his/her own ideas to the table.

I plan on starting a full-time job soon, but I expect to have enough time left in the day to jam/rehearse. I do not have a rehearsal space of my own though, so I'm hoping to connect with a bassist/vocalist or drummer who has a place where we can practice.

I'm open to taking this band as far as we want it to go -- I'd be cool with having fun just playing local shows and making records for our own enjoyment, as much as I'd be cool with signing to a label and seeing where it takes us.

I'm on BandMix's free membership so I can’t communicate too much on here, so find me on social media (name is the same as on here) if you wanna join this start-up.
