God Forbid's Doc Coyle Seeks Guitarist For New Project

God Forbid's Doc Coyle has teamed up with Phyllotaxis' Ravi, drummer Moe Watson and multi-instrumentalist Aden Oxenreider for a new as-yet-unnamed band, and they are looking for a guitar player.

Coyle had this to say, "I started working on material with Ravi almost 2 years ago by trading files over the internet. I was tied up with God Forbid, but now we finally have the time to put together a full band. We've included a small music sample and you will hear that it is not metal, although there are some heavy overtones.

"I am very picky about what kind of guitar player I want in this project, so I will lay out some guidelines. You need to live in the area between New York City, Central New Jersey, and Philadelphia. Rehearsing and playing gigs will require travel so the person must have a car. You need adequate and professional equipment including effects. The band is very ambient and will need someone who understands and likes to create soundscapes. There are some technical aspects to the music as well so you will need some chops. I have to emphasize that this is a rock band, not a metal band. I would prefer a non metal guitar player, but I'm fine with anyone as long as you understand it's not about sweeping picking at 220 BPM and playing 8 string guitar breakdowns. Our influences for this band are Tool, Muse, Deftones, Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Karnivool, etc.

"It's also important that I emphasize that this is a passion project. We are here for music and art first, and being signed or getting on the radio takes a back seat to doing something that is meaningful and being part of something that is special."

If you are guitarist and are interested, you can send a written or video statement about yourself, a photo of yourself, along with any examples of any music you've created or videos of live performance if these requirements apply to doc4bid@gmail.com
