Guitar player wanted for post-punk alternative rock band

Street Address 10 Stoke Newington Rd, Hackney Downs, London N16 7XN, UK
City London
Country United Kingdom


Having taken a small break this year we are currently seeking a guitar player to join the band to record a second forthcoming an EP of fresh original material, most of which has been written. We also intend to play some live dates in London between March and July this year. We\’re ideally looking for someone who wants to stick around for live nationwide gigs following the eps release. Demo versions of songs for the EP are available on request. 

We play alternative rock with a big sound. At least we like to think so. Search Spotify for HYMNS and you\’ll be able to hear some of our previous studio material. Look for the photo in this ad. Alternatively if you google wearehymns with the word Facebook or soundcloud you should get a result to listen to some demos and live rehearsal vids. 

Go to www[dot]soundcloud[dot]com/wearehymns or www[dot]facebook[dot]com/wearehymns to listen to early home and studio demos as well as live rehearsal videos. 

Our influences include 
Interpol, Yeah yeah yeahs, PJ Harvey, Primal Scream, U.N.K.L.E., White Stripes, The Smiths, Radiohead, Neil Young, Joy Division, Queens of the Stone Age, The Cure, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, Nick Cave and Ennio Morricone amongst others 

Please carefully consider whether you have the time and the ability to be involved as we are looking for a certain level of commitment. 

We\’re ideally after someone who is happy to play both big riffs and guitar lines, in the vein of Interpol or Depeche Mode while also happy to play more subtle lead parts that aren\’t necessarily the main hook. Adaptability in your playing style is a massive bonus. 

As the singer songwriter I am happy to meet up to have a chat about the recording and what\’s in store beyond that. 

Thanks for taking the time to read the ad. We look forward to hearing from you.
