Florida metallers The Absence have issued the following announcement about letting a fan play guitar on their upcoming album:

"What's up, Shredders!

"Anyone that knows The Absence knows we love our fans. Let's face it, you guys are why we do what we do. So whenever we get the chance we always like to show our gratitude any way we can.

"Since we know a ton of our fans are guitarists, this time around we thought it would be cool to give you a little piece of the action. So...while working on pre-production for our newest record 'Enemy Unbound' we left a section open for a guest guitar lead from one of you!

"The contest is pretty simple. Download the backing guitar riff at this location, come up with your coolest guitar lead over it, upload it to YouTube.com and we'll pick the winner!

"Runners up will receive goodies like autographed CDs, shirts and stickers!"

A video clip about the contest can also be viewed below.
