EAT THE DAY, the new group led by former LIMP BIZKIT guitarist Wes Borland, have launched a worldwide search for a singer. Here is the band's official statement on the matter:
"Finally... We were hoping that we wouldn't have to post this news, but it seems that we have no other choice. In the last few months we have been auditioning singers. We had originally planned on handling the vocal duties ourselves, but after much toil have decided that the quality of our voices does not match the quality of our music. Basically we have been instrumental musicians for 15 years and vocalists for 6 months. The difference between the two just wasn't measuring up, and our playing was suffering because we were trying to do so many jobs at once. So here it is.... After listening to about 100 demos and meeting with 5 singers, we feel that our selection is too limited. We want to expand the search. If you feel that you have what it takes to be onboard with us, we will be posting a P.O. Box address for you to mail demos to in the next 2 days. If you have a website or want to send us a song in the form of an MP3, you can e-mail us at [email protected] right now. I hope this message will spread to as many sources and websites as possible. We will not be making any appearances in any public locations, and there will be no mass auditioning. We will only be having private meetings with individuals in Los Angeles. If you do not live in the L.A. area, arrangements will be made for you to travel here if we are interested in you. This message will be modified with the P.O. Box information shortly. Please only send in submissions if you are serious, and don't bother sending in any RAP because it will immediately be thrown into the garbage (except for the jewel case, which we will keep). Also we are looking more for a beautiful voice and NOT a Nu-Metallish type of vibe. Someone who is extremely dynamic. Someone who can sing as sweetly as Jeff Buckley and also scream bloody murder, but we are ready to be open minded to almost anything except for RAP. We're really looking for a partner and a friend to be with us for years and years. So there you have it. We're looking forward to hearing from you."
In other news, Borland has announced plans to sell a "couple" of his guitar heads via eBay during the coming weeks. "The reserve will be low," said Wes. "They are Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifiers that I used in my LIMP BIZKIT touring rig. I have a bunch and don't really need the two I'm selling anymore. I would rather they get used by someone than sit in storage. So check it out. They will be under 'Wes Borland-owned Dual Rectifier.' I think it's kind of cheesy to sell it under my own name, but that's really the only way to explain the amount of wear and tear, not to mention all the pyro dust inside them. I also sold someone a head before to a guy who turned around and sold it as being owned by me, so screw it. Happy bidding if you are interested. They are great heads."
