Well now here’s a Help Wanted ad you just don’t see every day.
Want to sing for a metal super group consisting of dudes from Shadows
Fall, Unearth and Seemless? Wake up bro, it’s not a dream — this could be your reality!
"We are looking for one crazy bastard with the energy, the drive and the
determination to take this thing to the next level," says Matt Bachand of Shadows Fall, who with fellow Shadows guitarist Jon Donais has teamed up with drummer Derek Kerswill (Unearth/Seemless) and bassist Jeff Fultz (Seemless) to form an as-yet-untitled new monster rock band. They
group has already recorded a five-song demo, and now just needs a voice to
round out the beast.
"The vocalist we seek should be influenced by a variety of melodically based bands
anywhere from Alice In Chains, Shinedown, and Aerosmith, to Skid Row and Pantera,” Donais adds.
The press release announcing the opportunity is a bit more stern.
It reads: “You must be serious about the position, and must be able to tour
extensively. Demo submissions are currently being accepted. Submissions should
include a bio and list of past experience, photo, audio and/or video performance,
and any other information you would like the band to know. Interested
singers should send demo submissions and contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Of course, as anyone already knows, if you want to be in a successful band like the
Pixies, all you truly need to do is take out an ad in the Phoenix.
