Welcome to Devil's Dice Official Website
13th June 2019 -
««« DRUMMER REQUIRED «««
Midlands based, 30-45 years old and an experienced player, motivated to continually improve your craft and capable of demonstrating a professional attitude by representing the band at all times with online media, venues, promoters and fellow bands is essential.
A passion for Hard Rock & Melodic Metal is a must, our sound is akin to Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, Accept & Saxon, to this style we are committed.
Often presented as a headline act we have high standards for ourselves so you must have your own dependable gear and a means of transport (or the ability to arrange your travel well to rehearsals in Birmingham and gigs across the country).
Following a positive reception to our debut album, Libertarian, we have great gigs booked and new material in progress; you will need to learn the back catalogue plus covers (which will be assisted in all aspects).
If you have the attributes required to progress with a professional minded, well respected band and have the drive to succeed – contact us now to arrange an audition.
