"After three amazing years together the THREAT SIGNAL camp has decided to part ways with drummer Norm Killeen. This was a mutual decision and there are no hard feelings towards each other. We will still continue to work with Norm's graphic design company NME Studios. We wish you all the best with your future endeavors Norm, much love and respect.
So now the drummer search begins! We're looking for someone preferably with touring experience, but if not, that's fine. We have quite a bit of dates coming up in October and November through out North America and Europe, so we're looking for someone that can really nail these songs quick and hit the road.
To audition we're going to need a video of you playing the songs 'As I Destruct', 'To Remember', and 'Beyond Recognition'. Post these songs on YouTube or wherever you'd like and send them to email@example.com. Any further questions please feel free to contact us."
