Hi there!

We're a 4-piece progressive rock/metal band that sound like the following bands:
Karnivool, Tool, Caligula's Horse, Porcupine Tree/Steven Wilson, Opeth, Skyharbor, Tesseract and others in the same vein.

We're looking to replace our bass player who will be switching to he role of the lead singer.
Currently we're looking for someone who can understand the rhythmic role of bass and drums, play odd time-signatures from time to time, create thoughtful melodies for newer material, and perform some of the older material as well.
***Also note that we tend to be fairly patient teachers/musicians so we are looking for a personality fit rather than pure Victor Wooten-levels of talent :)

We are a diverse band, and we welcome anyone with good ideas. However we are also folks who have jobs, transportation and decent equipment - and are sober/clean when we jam and perform. We expect that level of reliability from ourselves and would like that to continue.
(We are also aged between 25 and 35 to provide some indication of where we are in life. We have a good, free rehearsal space)

**If this interests you - please tell us about yourself, your influences and include any samples/recordings you might have (phone recordings are absolutely okay :) )
We can then send over some of our material that we'd previously recorded.
