(no that's not our band name)

Hi.
We’re an established instrumental band from the Southwest Suburbs.
We’re all between the ages of 22-28 and we’ve been playing shows together for 4 years.
We have quite a few gigs already booked for 2008.
24/hr practice space/Pro-gear/Dedicated band members.
We’re your average nerdy musicians - no egos here.
Music is our life, so we would like to find someone who shares that thought.

Here’s a lot of sentences that start with the letter W.
We’ve been an instrumental project for years, and quite honestly it’s going really well.
What tends to hurt us is the fact that we’re pretty quiet, and we all stare at our feet while we play.
So we’ve decided to try something entirely new… vocals.
We’ve come to the conclusion that our music needs a voice and a body to reach more people.
We’re experimental, but tight. Songs range from floaty trippy delay effects to heavy 60’s drug rock.
We’ve been told by venues that we are the fullest, and loudest 3-piece they have ever heard.
We are looking for someone who is willing to be creative while writing vocals to fit the music - someone who can go from beautiful to off-the-wall (if the song requires it).
In our eyes, lyrics are more important than vocals… sorry, that’s just how we feel.

This is the part that sucks… because no one ever wants to admit they sound like anything.
With That said- We’ve been compared to the following bands:
Sigur Ros, Mogwai, Hum, Tristeza, Pumpkins, Built To Spill, Radiohead, Failure, Zeppelin, Modest Mouse, Shiner, The Flaming Lips, MBV, Dead Meadow, QOTSA, Floyd, Sunny Day Real Estate… etc.

If you haven’t heard of the bands listed above, please please check them out before you contact us.

We don’t really give a crap about the main-stream radio corporate rock, so don’t bother contacting us if that’s what you’re after. Merch is the last thing on our mind. Lets write music and worry about that later.

So with exception to all of that - here’s a little more about who we’re looking for…

A male vocalist/lyricist around the ages of 20-30. No experience required.
Must be able to practice 3-4 times a week (our nights and weekends are open).

If you’re interested, please drop us a line and if possible, a sample (or a link to a sample) of your voice.

Thanks!
