JackViper Return And Are Searching For New Singer
January 18, 2010
UK sleaze rockers JackViper have returned, and are on the lookout for a brand new singer. The band was last heard of in 2007 when they released the ‘Bullets For the Faithful’ EP through Perris Records. Below is JackViper’s official statement regarding what has been going on with the band and information for those interested in playing with the group.
“It’s been a while! But Jackviper are back, and we are ready to kick some ass! We’re currently searching for a vocalist. More on that below but first…
…As you probably noticed from the lack of activity on the old website we decided to take a break from music in 2009. What started in 2005 as an epic adventure of four friends on the road, in the end became a frustrating battle to get industry attention, and when it got to that stage the fun went out of it and what mattered, the music, seemed to be the last thing we got the time to concentrate on.
Parting ways with Jay R was a sad time and a difficult decision, but getting the legendary Dave “Dominator” (who joined us on vocals during our second tour with LA Guns) in as a permanent vocalist did give us new fire for the music. But after several shows and many hours in the recording studio, the frustration with the industry set back in and we decided the healthiest thing to do would be to take a break from music totally until we re-discovered our passion for the it, the fun came back, and it felt like it did at the start of it all.
Turns out it was the best thing we could have done because we’re all totally recharged, can’t wait to play some music, and restart the Viper’s quest for world domination.
Hope you guys still want to join us for the ride.
Dave “Dominator” misses playing the music he wrote with his old band Juice (awesome band by the way) so he is going to go back to that, and so begins our search to find the ultimate front man! If you guys could spread the word on message boards, myspace, twitter, facebook, etc that would be awesome, and if you know anyone who might fit the bill, please get them to contact us. Here’s what we are looking for…
We need a flamboyant, extrovert frontman with lots of live experience and good vocal range who can entertain the crowd like the legends of old. If you’re interested or you know anyone who fits the bill, please contact us via www.jackviper.com and send us links of any mp3’s of you/them singing and also links to photos and / or youtube videos.
The vocal style of the singer will determine the direction we take so don’t worry if Jackviper’s back catalogue doesn’t exactly suit your vocal style. We are looking for singers influenced by any of the following bands or vocalists.
Freddy Mercury, Axl Rose, Marilyn Manson, Journey, Queen, Scott Weiland, Wednesday 13, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Van Halen.We rehearse in West London and we will need you to be available at least once a week for rehearsals.
Its great to be back guys, and thanks for all your support along the way, looking forward to getting back out on the road and partying with you legends, lets do it!”
Shredder, Kiss, Ferlanger.
