So I've been in a band for about a year, and we're defenately coming together with tone and sound etc, but I'm excited to finally play out (after we find one of them drummist guys)

So Pit, how long did your band rehearse before you were out playing gigs? Obviously, this applies only to people that are in a band and have played out.

Well, my band is having member issues at the moment. Our guitarist is an ass and decided having sex with ex girlfriends is more important that writing with his band, so he's out and now we're stuck with me now playing guitar and bass and singing and my drummer
Common sense is becoming such and uncommon trait.

it can take a ****ing while. if you have the chemistry between the members make sure your **** is solid and you'll be kicking ass in no time!
...because the last thing the world needs is another metal guitarist.

Me.

My band.

I like Fall Out Boy. I don't like you.

It took us about 3 months, and we played a televised gig, shortly followed by a show in the Town Park on Canada Day. Weve together for about 6 months now, and we are recording our demo tommorow. We have people from local radio stations, and a guy from New York who wants to play our stuff.

...Im really proud

A couple months for me. Before we played together, we were expecting it to be just a hobby. After we played together once, we were just in shock. We worked together so well from the minute we started playing. We weren't even playing songs, just jamming.

Since then, we've written about an albums worth of material in 6 months. In the next couple months a demo is going out to a bunch of bars so we can try and get some more gigs aside from the few minor ones we had previously.
