With Daggers Drawn Splits With Vocalist Max Illidge And Guitarist Joey D'Amico

New Jersey's With Daggers Drawn has issued the following announcement about lineup changes:

"It sucks ass to announce this, but Max and Joey are both no longer members of WDD. A few weeks ago, Tommy, Greg, and I decided that we needed to go in a new and different direction with the band. There are absolutely no hard feelings between any of us. We are all still brochachos and always will be. Unfortunately, these things happen within bands and we made the tough decision to move forward without our brothers Max and Joey.

"So, we are now on the hunt for a new vocalist! Tommy, Greg and I have already started working on new music. Tommy has a plethora of hot jams that we are going to feast on and digest into recordings within the next few weeks. Once we have a few kingly tunes tracked, we will post them up and send them out to any singers who are interested. We are looking for the right GUY OR GIRL to satisfy our musical needs. Obviously, anyone who is interested MUST have the ability to actually SING like a champion. This band is, has been, and always will be molded around melody and catchy hooks. We are not totally against screaming but it is NOT a requirement. Also, it is very important that people who inquire about the position are serious about being in this band with the goal of making it your career. We all have day jobs and transportation so that is also an important requirement.

"All girls or guys who are interested please email us at WDDband@yahoo.com or message us at Facebook. Please include your full name, age, city and state, phone number, and any links and/or mp3s of your previous work. Feel free to pass this message along to people you know who might have what it takes to be a future teenage heart-throb of WDD.

"That is all for now friends. Big thanks to everyone who has came to our shows and downloaded and/or purchased 'Heart of the Universe.' We honestly love you all. But we are not done! Keep your ears and eyes peeled at www.facebook.com/withdaggersdrawn and spread the word about our search. Also, be on the lookout for 40 Below Summer's new album. Max, Joey, and Jordan have been working hard on it for a few months and should start tracking it fairly soon.

"If you have any questions just ask us. I respond to everything. Spread it on and see you all very soon!"
