Drummer Search 2009

So the time has come for us to embark on our newest search for a drummer. This will be our fourth drummer this time around so for those at home keeping score, the current count is:

Singers: 1
Bassists: 2 (Although Josh’s tenure pales in comparison to Ian’s 7+ years)
Additional guitarists: 3
Drummers: 4

So what happened with Dave, you might wonder? Well, Dave was a wonderful drummer but I’d say we grew apart. Between Ian’s move to Corpus and Barrett’s two international trips to parts unknown, a lot of downtime was experienced for Spitting Angels as a band. Once Ian moved back and we got our friend Justin from Halix on board to fill in guitar playing duties and we were ready to move full steam ahead again, Dave was involved in several other projects (one of which being our dear friends, Rainsliver) and it became clear that he did not have the time needed for us to get our momentum going again. That was in May of last year. It was hard for me to let go of the prospect of continuing with Dave but we simply need someone able to invest the necessary time to get the recordings done and rehearse enough so that we are at the top of our game with live performances.

Now, through all of this downtime, yours truly has been busy working on new recorded material (which deserves it’s own separate post to talk about but as of this writing there are 3 albums planned) and improving my home studio and mobile recording setups plus building towards visual enhancements for our live shows.

I’m really hoping this time around we can take our time in our drummer search to find someone whose interest, ambition and goals match ours and can help fast-track our band’s rise to stardom.
