    Depends on my mood..

    We are a four piece alternate rock band looking for a singer in the Leeds / Halifax area.
    Influences include Jimmy Eat World, Manchester Orchestra, Brand New, Appleseed cast, Explosions in the sky, Biffy Clyro, O'Brother, Bright eyes, Death Cab for Cutie etc.

    Have a listen to our demos. (Sorry about the Midi drums)

    We usually get together every 1-2 weeks for writing and rehearsing.
    We're all mid 20's doing this for fun, all work monday - friday. We have no crazy gigging / touring plans, we're mainly about writing and recording. Looking to put an EP / Album in the future.

    If you're interested get in touch.

    Hello hello

    I'm looking for a drummer and a vocalist to learn and record a couple of rock/pop/psych songs I've written. I'm not looking to form a band as such – the touring/gigging stuff is something I loved doing for a while but I'm only really interested in writing and recording for the meantime. I'm looking for folks of any age/gender who I can trust to turn up to a few practices and then a recording session.

    My previous band NARCS ( http://soundcloud.com/NARCSband ) worked with some really great folks at Clue Records in Leeds and I've discussed putting a single/B-side out with them. I'm looking for people who won't screw me or Clue around and are open minded & creative.

    In terms of sound, it's grungy, psych-rocky stuff, (hopefully) sounding instrumentally something like Spirits & Worm/Tarkus/Fuzz. Vocally I'm looking for ethereal/reverby stuff similair to Hookworms/GOAT etc.

    Any interested parties, link me to some of your stuff!

    Guitarist, 30's with transport and own gear (Orange valve head, Fender Strat) looking for a band or some fellow musicians to jam with. Been playing for 15 years, past 5 in a Leeds band (Two Trick Horse).

    Musically I'm into a wide variety of guitar stuff from indie stuff (Death Cab, Low, Band of Horses, The National), post-rock/metal (Isis, Explosions, Russian Circles) and punk/hardcore (Fugazi, Jawbreaker, Hot Water Music). Other faves are Smashing Pumpkins, Deftones, jimmy eat world, Get up Kids, Pearl Jam, Mogwai.

    Hi, is there any bassists' looking to join a band? I am currently putting together a band for a project that I have been working on and writing over the past few months. The general vibe is like shoe gaze mixed with 60's garage and 80's jangly pop. the feedback from the material has been really great one of my tracks made it to best tracks of the year from there is a hell bellow pod cast

    I play guitar and sing and have also just got an extremely talented drummer on board. all we need is an experienced bassist with good gear and can do attitude. We are both located around the Burley area of Leeds and should also have a free rehearsal room available sometime soon. looking rehearse and get an 3 track E.P by next year. I have good contacts for industry and venues around the country and also have a manager on board. Ready to get this going fast.

    Newly formed metal/post-hardcore band based in Leeds (obviously). Between us we have plenty of experience and are looking for a decent vocalist who shares our style and taste in music. Our influences are vast and varied, but include Thrice, Protest the Hero, Between the Buried and Me, Norma Jean and Mastodon, to give you a taste of what we're like.

    We're pretty serious and want to get gigging as soon as possible, and eventually recording. We've got demos available at the following links:

    24 y/o vocalist/guitarist looking for band members to play regular gigs.

    Some of what I'm interested in:

    Fugazi, the Cribs, Ty Segall, Metz, Nirvana

    This is what my last band sounded like:


    A development of similar sounds would be cool & it would be great to trade ideas on lyrics and chords progressions etc with some new people.

    Get in touch if you're interested!
