Swiss industrial-metallers SYBREED have issued the following update:
"While the media are still mourning the death of the King Of Pop, which is in our mind a bad attempt to hide the fact that he actually went back to his homeland, so as to say the planet Krypton or Sirius B (we're still arguing on that matter), we also have to share our part of sadness with the world by announcing the departure of our bass player Burn.
Indeed, after having spent several years roaming stages with us, he felt he wasn't able to carry on with the constant sacrifices that a musician's lifestyle implies (You know … having no job, no car, being broke, homeless and consume only low quality drugs). Fortunately, our friendship with him remains preserved, since it's a decision we can but understand, and so as to finish in a good way, Burn will anyway participate in the US tour beginning on July 17th, and surely in a couple of shows in Europe until we find a new bass player.
So, we are now looking for someone who could handle Burn's former duty. We have already a small list of people in mind, but still if you think you can handle the bass in Sybreed and if you want to try an audition, you can still contact Drop directly to the following address: email@example.com
Anyway here are a couple of conditions you have to fulfill: having skills ('thank you, Captain Obvious!'), decent gears and equipments and if possible a good experience in stage performance. Leaving not too far from Geneva, being available and autonomous would also be also a plus, not to say equally necessary conditions. Ah yeah, and you MUST have skills.
For the rest, including the psycho-pathological dimension, it will be left to our own appreciation."
