New Jersey technical death metallers, The Binary Code, have issued the following update on their Myspace page regarding the departure of their singer:

"Woody and the Binary Code have parted ways as of February 4th, 2008. Everything was done on good terms. Woody has a life ahead of him that needed some changes, and being in a time consuming band was not on the itinerary. Woody will possibly continue his musical career at a slower pace with his original band In the Ether."

"That all being said, we ARE looking for a singer right now. We have played every show since February 4th without a singer and felt it was a success nonetheless. However, we do want to fill that position once again. A big factor in the decision made between Woody and the Binary Code was dedication. We require a sickening amount of dedication to be in this band. Many of you who know us personally already know how much we rehearse and write throughout the week. If you're interested, and want more details about future plans, possible label details, shows that aren't posted, etc, just ask us."

"So, there are a few (lol!) stipulations:"

"*ages 18 and up"

"*out of highschool"

"*male/female (not both please, we're not into the dick and tits combo; well, Umar is, but he's sick)"

"*accepting of criticism - we're very critical of one another. the best part about being in this band is the ability you'll have to branch out as a musician and learn new things. knowing what you're doing will get you a long way in this business."

"*practice minimally 2 nights a week (we have our own rehearsal place in East Rutherford that we're at 7 nights a week, literally, from 6pm to 2am. the only reason a singer doesn't need to be there 7 nights a week is because of the physicality behind the style of singing). we dont practice as much now, we write new material, which we're playing live now, so the only reason we'll have for practicing is to rehearse with a singer trying out."

"*play all the shows (duh)"

"*contribute to the band financially until we do sign with a label that gives us an advance (ie: rent for the studio, which what it all comes down to is, rehearsing at some shit hole like Backstage in Totowa winds up being like 42 bucks a night for 3 hours, so for us that's like 294 dollars a week, and our rent is 500 a month, and we practice at least 5-7 hours a night, and on sundays 10-13 hours)"

"*singing/screaming/gutterals - our new material needs singing. as well as screaming and gutterals. we're probably the most eclectic band you'll ever meet. we listen to just about everything."

"*we're a family. im sure bands say this all the time. but we are. i see my band more than i see my family at home. we're not hard to get in with, but we're not into the distant member kind of thing, where there's one dude who just shows up to do the job. we're going to wind up in a van together for a month, the last thing you want is silence, because that leads to depression on the road."

"Overall, if you know you've got the talent to do our band, by listening to our tunes, and like the direction we're going, give it a shot. but if you don't like our music, and think it'll be tough to feel natural doing what we do, we'll understand, and appreciate the inquisitive messages. we are a serious band, and we need serious dudes to jam with us. we have vocal-less versions of the songs, and lyrics. if you want them, we've got it for you. the fact that we're jamming all the time, means, you can come out any time, but we're on a tight schedule with these shows coming up, so get back to us as soon as possible."

"SPREAD THE WORD! If you know someone who fits our criteria, let us know. Anything you can do for us is of great help."

"We will NOT pack it up because of this. We'll play instrumentally until you get the point."

"Thanks!"
