Californian extreme metal act Vile have lost their bassist and lead guitarist, which puts the future of their upcoming shows in Cali and Europe in jeopardy.
The band is looking for replacements. “Must have extensive band experience, pro gear, etc.,” the band says. “Prefer those without edgy or hostile personalities and cigarette smokers are not eligible, sorry.”
What do you have against dudes who want to kill themselves for $12 a pack? Jerks.
“Tuning is straight 1/2 step down on seven-string guitar or five-string bass (starting at Bb). Send private message to Colin Davis on Facebook with links to videos of your live performace and stodio recordings. Tab for Vile songs is available on the Web. Audition videos are a good idea, but you can make them private if you choose. Guitarists, pick a song from New Age of Chaos with solos to show your solo skills.”
Vile released a new album, called Metamorphosis, last November through Willowtip Records.
No explanation for the sudden openings in the band was offered. Something tells me it involved cigarettes.
