“Very serious about this, doesn’t matter if you have a bunch of gear. All the gear in the world can’t substitute a good strong player. Already signed to a label. Only have a couple of weeks to put a band together. As soon as we do we’re set up to tour across the states headed to California to do our EP, in the label’s studio. So we would need to get together pretty quickly to get the material learned. I already have enough material for four albums. If your interested, contact me at Facebook or http://www.reverbnation.com/aitg. Thanks.”
