Separatist Guitarist Departs, Replacement Sought

Tasmanian death metal band Separatist has announced the departure of guitarist and founding member David Gilbert from the band. The band commented:

“I have some bad news to share with you tonight… Unfortunately Gilbo parted ways with Separatist earlier this afternoon. Evidently he has some stuff going on and yeah, hes gone. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”

The band, who is currently recording an album and has also announced shows in their home state supporting Psycroptic, is now searching for a replacement guitarist that meets the following criteria:

“1: You must be technically proficient on the guitar… that means you must be a good player! our new material is pretty darn techno if i do say so myself, and you will need to keep up.

2: You must have your own gear… or at least unconditional access to some other unsuspecting friend/housemate/arch enemys gear that you can borrow whenevs.

3: You must have a steady income and be willing to travel… we like to travel, do you? you will need to if u want to join this band… we tend to play on the mainland and we intend to hit up europe/usa on the back of the next album.

4: It is PREFERABLE that you are 18 or older… however if you are underage and can prove to us that we should make an exception for you, feel free to apply.

5: You must have the ability to unleash some mad stage presence while playing gigs… be it mad sickness windmills if you have long hair, or a ‘dank stomp’ as we like to call it for those who have short hair, basically you need to be able to move!

6: You must be able to make it to band practice in acton at an average of 2/3 times a week (we are flexible with times etc though…) but yeah, you have to actually come to band practice… ahem… *cough*… it would be sick if u have your drivers license too, it helps!

7: If you live on the mainland… you will have to be able to either move down here or spend alot of time down here in tassie!

8: You must be a sicko (and by that i mean, you must hang out with us and be a cool dude [or chic, we like chics!]) and not be grossly offended by our sometimes… completely gay senses of humour.

“Ok so that is a fair few criteria, but honestly thats what we are looking for in a guitarist! if you are interested send Separatist a private message, or send me (Disho) an email at sam@separatistonline.com with the subject line 'Separatist Guitar Sickness'… or at least something like that… and include the following details…

Mobile Phone number
Previous Experience

“Cheers guys, hope to hear from some of you soon! Love from Separatist… mainly Disho”
