Ruins of Arcadia


Bass Guitar.


Technical death metal band looking for Bassist (optionally can also do vocals) in CHICAGO or MILWAUKEE area. We have an "audition" set up on here if you can find the link, or you can find us on ruinsofarcadiaband. Were recording an album over the next few months. We formed in Dallas, TX but the guitarist moved to Fox Lake, IL and has a home studio where we can practice and record at any hour. The drummer is moving up here to record an album and play some shows around Chicago and Milwaukee. If you play guitar but are willing to play bass that's cool, if you can't attend every live practice but will tryout live and attend some practices but learn the material mostly at home, that's cool. Let us know!
