CONTRA Seek New Bassist

Ventura, California metal/hardcore act CONTRA are currently seeking a new full-time bassist. Interested parties must satisfy the following criteria:

* Must be a bass player. Says the group: "None of this 'I play guitar but I can play bass in your band.' Believe it or not there is a difference between playing styles)."

* Must be available to tour as of February 1. And to tour full-time thereafter

* Must have professional equipment or the means to acquire professional equipment immediately

* Must not be in any other bands. "Sorry but if you really wanna take a shot at this but your in another band, you gotta drop 'em," the group write. "Nothing personal, we just have to make sure that CONTRA always comes first."

* Must be over 18, it's too hard to tour with minors.

* Must not have any other obligations, no full-time job, school, etc.

* Must live in the Ventura County/Los Angeles/Santa Barbara area or be willing to relocate.

* Must have transportation to and from practices and such. "We have a van but it doesn't mean we're gonna cart your ass around in it all the time," the band write.

* Last but not least, if you want to try out, learn the songs on the MySpace page. "We wanna try you out to our songs, not how well you can play someone else's. The songs on the space are in drop C."

CONTRA's new EP, "This Machine Kills", was released in August 2005 via Mediaskare.
