hello pit, we are thinking of adding another vocal to our band for versatility and harmonization options. Two of them will act like two frontmans, none of them will play anything on stage. But im unsure of the situation regarding the stage act. How would people react to having two vocals? what would one do when another is singing?? also, wouldn't the stage become clumsy? What do you people suggest? Besides, it would be great if i could find some good youtube videos of bands that have two vocals, to learn how they handle the situation. thanks in advance

You mean you will have two people in the band that ONLY sing and don't play any other instrument? I don't know if I've ever seen that before..

Well SOAD has 2 vocalists, and I can't stand either one of their "singing" (and I use that term lightly) voices, so 2 singers migt be cool, but it could end up sucking as well

Sonic Syndicate and even with a hot girl playing bass they suck (thank god for the drunk people falling over in the mud to keep me entertained through that set)

Sly and the Family Stone.

Actually, in their 1969 lineup, they had 3,974 vocalists.

The Blood Brothers. If you play really energetic music it should work and not look awkward. But if you play slow music, it could look a little weird when they are just standing there.

I think Santana does mulit-vocalists a good bit.

And, I'm pretty sure lots of -core bands have co-vocalists, though One's usually backing on another instrument.

What genre are you looking to do, by the way?
#23
they would ONLY sing... no one will play any instrument, that's the point im trying to make.. most of the examples given here have the vocals also playing instruments.


#26
stabilo has two vocalists but i don't think they sing at the same time and i think they both play instruments

Metal is a sub-genre of metalcore since metalcore is more popular therefore better.

I know they both play instruments, but in Reel Big Fish, a lot of times Scott doesn't play anything (just holds his trumpet) and still comes in, though aaron has his guitar

I'm pretty sure Emery also does this, neither of their vocalists play instruments, but one only does all the screaming
#37
It can work if both vocalist have a very different sound, like a singer and a rapper, a man and woman or clean and screaming. If you both sing the same style, don't bother.... it's just a waste
#38
If you're a type of -core band you could have the vocalists prance around like the guys from HeavyHeavyLowLow. Showbread used to have to vocalists the 2nd guy would stand there and dance to the beat or goof off if that gives you an idea for what the other guy will be doing when the other guy is singing. Also, many mathcore bands have 2 vocalists you might want to check out groups in that genre.
