ABOUT

Planning Fall 2023 Tour

Usadown is a Noise Rock Band. Co-Founder’s of love666 on Amphetamine Reptile Records (AmRep).

We are looking for a Female Ryhthm Guitarist. Your sole purpose will be to play Rhythm Guitar and sing background vocals.

Even though all of the songs are written for our first lp, we would certainly like you to be a part of our second lp. If you decide to join the band you will be considered an equal member from the start.

The band is Ryhthm Guitar - Drums - Lead Noise Guitarist

We are heavily influenced by FreeJazz. Watch Jimi Hendrix at the Monterey Pop Festival the last song of the set "Wild Thing" when he sets his guitar on fire, that's the type of Noise/Feedback we incorporate into our songs.

We have a lot of touring and label experience. If you are new to the game no problem. By the end of the first tour you will know how the music business operates and you can run the 2nd one.
