CRISIS Bassist Leaves Band; Auditions To Be Held

September 22, 2005

CRISIS have announced the departure of Gia Wang, the group's bass player for the last 12 years. "Due to family commitments, Gia will be unable to continue to be a part of the CRISIS collective," reads an official press release. "The band wishes Gia well in all his future endeavors.

"Nick Weitzel, a friend of the band, will be filling in on bass guitar for the EXODUS tour. CRISIS will hold auditions for a permanent bass player position starting in November.

"We are looking for an aggressive player who can perform with a live intensity as well as be a creative force in our improvisational style of songwriting. We prefer a player that uses a pick unless you think you are the next Cliff Burton. SERIOUS CANDIDATES ONLY!

"Submission requirements:

1.) Send bio (name, contact info, band experience, tour experience, musical influences, any music school experience)

2.) You must learn the following four CRISIS songs on your own and send either an audio or video with audio recording of you playing 'A Graveyard for Bitches', 'Waking the Dead', 'Politics of Domination' and 'Nomad'.

"Send submissions to:
