Established punk band in the Lincoln area is looking to expand their sound with the addition of a second guitarist (lead or rhythm)/backup singer.

Punk Influences:
Rancid, Agent Orange, Johnny Cash, NOFX, Dropkick Murphys, Woody Guthrie, Rage Against The Machine (they're more punk than metal), The Pogues, Flogging Molly, The Interrupters, Tsunami Bomb, Star-Fucking Hipsters, (*sigh*yes...of course)...The Misfits, Harvey Danger, The Briggs, and many more.

Rock/Metal Influences:
Megadeth, Opeth, Iced Earth, Type O, Fear Factory, Led Zep, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the likes.

Folk/Coutry Influences:
We do like folk and OLD Country, as well as some "Delta Blues", not the "White-Man's-Chicago-Kraft-Mac&Cheese-Blues" bullshit.

Things to consider:

1. We drink. Sorry if that offends you (it is surprising how many people are just not cool with this). All we ask is that you don't be an asshole, and that you're functional to learn new songs/play at gigs. Also, we can't afford bail, so our legal advice is that you don't get arrested...or just don't get caught.

2. Energy. Please be someone who looks like they enjoy playing this shit. You're not a statue, and we enjoy doing this - look like you are as well.

3. Actually be able to play and have your own equipment. It blows our minds how many people say they play the guitar when they only just started playing the previous week. It's punk, so it's not too hard.

4. And for fucks sake, actually read the influences we have. We don't need you to like exactly every single band we posted above, just please be influenced by something in the same general goddamn UNIVERSE that punk exists in. We have had too many Indie-Rock and Grateful Dead fans come forward saying they'd like to play. That's really cool that you're into those styles, because we like all sorts of music (really, we do!), but we need someone with a little more anger behind the guitar pick/vocals.

5. We don't give a shit what your age or gender is, just be able to follow along with the above-mentioned requirements and we'll be golden.

Still interested? Well, shit. Respond to this ad.
