Wanna Be the New Vocalist for The Contortionist?
Although we never wrote about it because I’m not sure why, vocalist Jonathan Carpenter has split with The Contortionist because he’s gonna be a daddy. That’s great for him and everything, but let’s concentrate on what’s important here: THE CONTORTIONIST NEED A NEW SINGER!
If you think you have the chops — and we’d friggin’ love it if a MetalSucks reader landed the gig — here’s how to audition, via an official press release:
The band has uploaded two instrumental tracks here. They encourage applicants to complete a vocal demo of at least one, but preferably both songs (YouTube preferred) and send the link via email to firstname.lastname@example.org along with any other pertinent info. Other criteria needed are:
- -Must be local to Indianapolis area or willing/able to travel/relocate.
- -Must be 18+ years old
- -Preferably able to play keyboards/synth in a live setting but not required.
- -Preferably has some previous tour, songwriting, and studio experience.
- -Must be free of any full time commitments (such as school or work) and ready to commit to the band FULL TIME starting June 1, 2013.
“We aren’t just looking for someone that can show off their skills as a musician,” says guitarist Cameron Maynard. “The band needs someone special that personally favors the traveling, and it should be in this person’s best interest to truly enjoy performing and working creatively day in and day out.”
I imagine these cats are gonna get roughly eighteen bajillion entries, so I wouldn’t exactly take my sweet time getting my audition materials to them, y’know?
Break a leg, friends.
