Florida metal act Unkempt has issued the following announcement about parting ways with the band's guitarist:
"As those of you may know who were in attendance at our last show with Six Feet Under in Tampa, FL we recently congratulated our guitarist and dear friend Jason Sims on becoming a father-to-be to twins! We are all very happy for Jason and wife Heather for such great news and their future in becoming great parents to likely two very talented children.
"Unfortunately with this great news we regret to inform you all that Jason will be stepping down as a member of the Unnkempt family to uphold his responsibilities as both a father and husband. Jason will, without a doubt, be very sorely missed. Now for some good news for you, the reader. This open position needs someone to fill it…and it could be you.
"We are in search of someone who can fill some very large shoes and we are opening the audition process up to everyone. You will be screened personally by the band. If you do not fit the requirements, we appreciate your support but please do not submit a request for pre-screening. We want to bring our family, friends, and fans the music we pour our heart and souls into as soon as possible and to do so we have to streamline this process as best we can. We are an established band and LLC, which means we are a registered business with accounts payable and accounts receivable. Help us to keep the engine running and we will all see you in the pit very soon. Here you will find the requirements to what we need in order to be eligible for pre-screening and to be contacted personally by the band for an audition.
"Thank you all so much for supporting the music and all we do and good luck!"
Today in the U.S. we celebrate Memorial Day, which honors the men and women in our armed services and those who have given their lives to protect us. Metal bands across the U.S. have been commenting on the holiday, and here you can see a variety of statements posted online from different groups.
To all our veterans, young and old, and to all actively deployed U.S. troops, thank you so much for the sacrifices made on our behalf both for this generation, those before us, and the ones yet to come. Enjoy your freedoms today and time with friends and family, for that freedom came at an unimaginable cost. So, once again, thank you Vets!!! We honor you all today and give you our support and appreciation.
We appreciated and respect EVERY Veteran every where, go thank a Veteran today.
We at Castle Dischordia would like to thank the brave men and women (and their families) who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. Thank you.
Scythe Of Dante
For all the soldiers that fought and died for both you and I, We salute you.
Take time today to remember those who sacrifice for country and cause. Remember those who do the hard work of the armed forces when they're tired, when their family lives are taxed, and when things look darkest. Thank you all.More...
