Are you a VOCALIST looking to join a band? If so, keep reading...
F R E Y C U S [frey-kuhs] is offering auditions to anyone who is ready to be a part of an up-and-coming creative force.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR IN A BAND MEMBER:
Dedicated individuals with reliable transportation to travel to Downtown LA 2 times per week. We run a tight ship and typically come in on Mondays and Fridays from 6:30-10:30 pm or later, but we are amenable to this schedule based on your needs.
Professionals who have at least 10 years of training and commitment and know how to record using a metronome (cannot stress this enough). If you are not serious about your career as a musician, then please don't waste our time as well as yours.
Please be ready, responsible, and on time. We take our work very seriously and never stop moving forward. We are currently rehearsing our album and would love to play shows with a full set of members so long as everyone keeps each other and themselves accountable.
We rent a 24/7 lockout at DTLA Rehearsal. It is a great spot to jam, record music, and build chemistry. However, if brought on board, there is a strict requirement that rent must be contributed in its full and equal amount. Rent will vary between $175-$200/month along with potential fixes/upgrades to our house equipment. Remember, this is an investment in our career as musicians, it not only enables us to record all our own music but also establishes you as a co-owner of this space, it is yours to do with as you please as long as the space is respected and used for building your craft.
Our music has changed over the years, starting off as punk rock to what is now a progressive metal band with influences such as The Ocean, Jinger, Deftones, Rabea Massaad, Animals As Leaders, Intronaut, Gojira & Porcupine Tree. Our vision with this style of music is definitely worth something to look forward to especially with the the ability to be creatively free. We are heavily into melodic/ambient grooves with the incorporation of heavy rhythmic ballads.
VOCALIST REQUIREMENTS: Singing is a must, screaming is a plus; If you can only scream, this is not what we are looking for. We are open to talent from all genres, as long as you're willing to do this with us.
INSTRUCTIONS ON THE FIRST STEPS OF THE AUDITION PROCESS:
To the best of your recording abilities, record any part you prefer from the song linked below. Remember, the more you show off, and the better the recorded audio quality is, the more we’ll consider taking you to step two.

(Note: The vocalist on this track is female. We prefer a female vocalist, but don’t let that deter you, we understand this vocal range is high, but if any of you men out there have the chops to kill it at this range, we’d love to see that)
Once you’ve recorded your audition take, send it over through email or DM us on Instagram @ freycus.
Give us a few days to get back to you and we will give you our answer if we are interested in moving forward. We look forward to jamming with you and building the relationship of a lifetime!
