    Re: Looking to Form a band. Need Musicians! - DRUMMER WANTED

    I play guitar in Leeds based band Time to Leave and our drummer has recently left the band, so we're on the search for a new one.
    Our music could probably be loosely classified as modern/alternative rock, with influence from the likes of Thrice, Coheed and Cambria, The Reveiving End of Sirens and various other modern American rock bands of the same ilk shining through in our sound.
    We're looking for someone who loves playing music, will commit to the band, likes the music we play, can ideally drive and is generally looking to put their all into getting themselves and this band as far as possible.

    Our myspace address is www.myspace.com/timetoleave, for anyone wishing to see what we're like, and if you're a drummer and like what you hear, think you can play the songs as well as, if not better than our previous drummer and are interested, then we're interested. Drop me a message on here or email timetoleave@hotmail.co.uk.

    Skillful Versatile Drummer Wanted

    We are looking for a versatile and accomplished Drummer/Percussionist, able to play in a variety of styles and integrate very quickly into a very successful 8 piece line-up. (Eleven albums released so far - worldwide)

    You will be experienced in live work, as well as recording, have a good sense of humour, your own transport, equipment and a desire to continuously improve what you (we) do.

    Sensitivity and timing are key and a natural musical awareness of what is required.

    The band produces an eclectic mix of music which broadly falls within the “progressive” genre, but in reality spans many different musical forms from beautiful ballads and folk-tinged songs through to awesome all-out rock workouts and true progressive epics – no two songs sound the same!

    The band is currently experiencing a surge of interest and support, with nominations for Album of the Year by the Classic Rock Society (CRS) and a series of storming headline gigs in support of the latest and critically acclaimed new album.

    Highlights of the band’s 11th anniversary year will be a return appearance at the 2011 Cambridge Rock Festival and now the planned recording of a live album later in 2011.
    A new studio album is also being written which we would like you to get creative with...

    The nature of the band is semi-professional – everyone has a day job. However, the ambition and approach is completely professional.
    These are not positions for anyone wanting to earn money – the band is wholly dedicated to bringing the recordings to life and seeing where that takes us.

    If this sounds interesting to you – let us know.

    Applicants must be available to rehearse Tuesday evenings in Leeds.

    Leeds Yorkshire
    Progressive/Classic Rock Folk Jazz

    This thread is now open to anyone looking for musicians then, yeah?

    Wouldn't a dedicated 'Musicians Wanted/Available' section on the forum be alot easier?

    Just a thought.

    OK, so I have put an ad on music-ads.com - but might as well post here, as I can't find a 'Start New Thread' button and other board is so busy!

    Almost ready to gig, Mörderstein are still looking for the 'Flake' element of this excellent Rammstein covers band.
    We have commitment, dedication and rehearse near to York.
    Age/sex unimportant but transport, gear and positive attitude helps.

    Think you can cut it?
    Then please get in touch!

    Looking for various musicians for a new krautgazey project.

    Couple of demos up here, two more to come

    Not imperative that the live arrangements are identical. Jam leeway etc.

    Any guitarists, bassists, percussionists, synthists, effects pedalists, even vocalists give me a shout on here or at headsty[at]gmail.com.

    My considered line-up, by no means set in stone, is: myself on vocals/keyboards/guitar (will consider additional vocals), a bassist, two or three other guitarists, preferably two drummers (at least one full kit, maybe the second just on auxiliary percussion and doubling up on keyboards or something), and anything else that would be good for a big soundings a wall of sound.

    Hope you're interested. Out of interest, I'm based in LS6 1.

    Established Leeds rock band looking to replace bassist asap.

    We've got recordings, gigs and a BBC Intro Radio Session lined up in 2012, we released our own EP and toured the UK (Glasgow, Liverpool, Leeds, Newcastle, London, Cardiff, Sheffield, Hull, Preston and even the mighty Chorley amongst others) in our debut year, last year.

    We parted ways with our previous bassist because we didn't feel he prioritised the band highly enough, so if you're looking to form a band just for fun, we're probably not what you're after. We just want someone, 18-23, who can play solidly without wanting to play slap funk all over our rock. We want them to love playing and gigging and we need them to drink something better than Fosters.

    The name is British Racing Green, you can find us on facebook /BRGband or soundcloud /BRGband . The recordings aren't really a good representation of where we are now, they were done last August and we've since more or less written 2 of the songs on the EP out of our set completely, adding a lot better, bigger material as well.

    If you're looking to do a band as #1 priority, willing to risk/lose jobs etc, we want you to join us!
