Machine Head are on the hunt for a new bassist - and it could be you.
They parted ways with long-term bassist Adam Duce in February, but it's been hard to find a suitable replacement through their social contacts and have taken the hunt online.
Now you can submit an entry to be the next Machine Head bassist. Here's the official competition entry rules from their website:
For a limited time the band will accept and review YouTube submissions that include the following:
1) Video: A standalone performance of the songs listed below, just yourself, singing and playing bass along to the the tracks off the albums. **Camera phone is fine as long as it's stable**
2) A brief 1- to 2-minute statement about your musical experience; playing, touring experience, etc.
Please upload your videos to YouTube and e-mail a link (or links) to MHBassAuditions(AT)gmail(DOT)com that includes the following songs:
1) This Is The End
3) Beautiful Mourning
Once the band has narrowed down potential candidates, they will hold tryouts in person at a to-be-determined location.
Think you've got what it takes? Get that old video camera out, post some footage, and be sure to share your YouTube entry in the comments here so other UG readers can see what they're up against. Good luck!
