New York based Biohazard are looking for a replacement for vocalist Evan Seinfeld, and have issued an open audition to find a new frontman. Biohazard and Seinfeld parted back in June, citing “personal reasons,” right before they were scheduled to play at the Download Festival.
The statement reads as follows:
ATTENTION SINGERS!!! You think you got what it takes to be one of the voices for Biohazard? Send us your music, videos, links, etc., to email@example.com and we’ll check you out.
Experience is a must, as is the ability to commit 100 per cent to the life of a full-time touring musician, as the band is booked solid for 2012 and 2013.
Billy Graziadei, the band’s guitarist, recently spoke about the departure of Seinfeld:
It dropped like a bombshell. It kind of came up from left field. We finished tracking the record in late February and really didn’t have much contact with him that much.
Everything was through management and I was working on the mix with (producer) Toby (Wright) and some additional overdubs and different ideas and some piano and keyboard stuff.
Then a couple of weeks ago he calls up and says, ‘I can’t do it anymore!’ He’s got a bunch of personal stuff and it’s mostly secret. But it’s personal between… it’s what’s going on in his life, but he made a decision and we weren’t happy about it, but we made our decision to continue and keep going.
It would be great if he was here and I know he’s proud of the record and as happy as it came out as we are. We were all there and made it together and focused equally on it, but rather to let it die out, we said, ‘You know what? Fuck it! We’re all psyched and happy and even though things are different it doesn’t mean much has changed!’ The heart and soul of the band is still intact and we’re gonna continue.
Biohazard’s tenth album, Reborn in Defiance, will be their first in six years, and is set to drop later this year.
