Annihilator in last-minute SOS for tour bassist
Jeff Waters and co want musician with “no dope, no booze problem, no criminal record” for imminent shows
Annihilator have launched a last-minute appeal for a bassist to take part on their imminent European tour.
Mainman Jeff Waters is back on vocal duties after temporarily bringing back classic-era singer Coburn Pharr for their appearance at the 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise earlier this year.
Now they’re urgently seeking a bass player to complete their touring lineup ahead of their In The Blood run of dates – and they're asking those interested to apply via video.
Annihilator say : “As many of you already knew, our bassist Oscar Rangel has been a ‘temp.’ We're looking for a bassist for our headline tour and possibly beyond.”
The right candidate “must play with a pick” and have “no dope, no booze problem, no criminal record whatsoever.” They add: “ Oh yeah – he has to play bass good and be a relatively good person!”
Annihilator will release their 15th studio album Suicide Society on September 18 via UDR Music.
