Oh god. I’ve been seeing subtle variations of this "ad" popping up inside Chicagoland area music shops!
If you see something that reads along the lines of, “a couple of old and grouchy songwriters/guitarists are looking to form a band, blah, blah, blah, blah…”, then yup. GUILTY. I’m part of that.
My friend and former A DAY WITHOUT bandmate, (the elusive) Hobbes, and I are indeed looking for a female singer to front our new project. We’ve generically narrowed down our “influences” to include The Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, The Cure, Incubus, Muse, Placebo, and Garbage... But of course we really don't sound anything like them at all.
But if that type of angsty, melodramatic, occasionally dreary, romantic, but mostly pummel-you-into-submission rock n’ roll is in your wheelhouse, then please contact me here.
You don’t need to have a lot of experience, but you obviously have to have a voice, as well as a knack for writing strong lyrics and melodies.
