Its a sad day to see one of your best friends move on to pastures new, and it is with great sadness that we have to announce our guitarist Lee Cook is stepping down from Martyr Defiled duties. Whilst sad days are usually overcast and dull, this one is tinged with a bright future ahead as we look forwards. Lee will fulfilling all his commitments to the band during the time we're looking for a new guitarist - also in which time we're cracking on with fine tuning our sophomore album, which is getting ever closer to being finished.

In regards to looking for a new guitarist, we have decided to open public auditions. The song we'd like any applicant to learn is Goldstein - record a live video of yourself playing it along to the track then email us about yourself at martyrdefiled@gmail.com, along with your audition video link. Tab (without the solo) can be found here: [forbidden link]

Applicants, please think on the following things!

- You need your own touring rig
- We will be touring a lot over the next 18 months and beyond
- We'd ideally like to see someone with proven songwriting ability, let us hear your songs!
- If you're based in the midlands/north of the UK, that would be a major advantage
- Live experience is also an advantage - we're not timid on stage!
