It looks like Self Against City is in search of a drummer after all. The band sent out the following message.
MessageDRUMMERS!

We are currently seeking a hard-hitting, no non-sense maestro of percussion to join us on the beginning of a journey of marvelous proportions. You must have the ability to play to a click, be ready to tour immediately, be willing to match your drum sizes to the tonality of our new album, and most importantly, you must be completely and wholly in love with rock and roll. Auditions will be held in Sacramento, CA.

If you believe you are this person, or if you would like more information please email us at: drumsagainstcity@yahoo.com

please do not contact us...

Self Against City has left the following message on their myspace page in regards to member changes:

Although we do appreciate the support and interest that so many of you have shown, we are NOT looking for a drummer or a bassist. Our friend Hunter MacDonald, who you may have seen in your town while he was playing bass for JamisonParker or The Fire Escape, will be playing bass and the drums will now be pounded upon by our friend and fellow sacramento native, Kyle Pesely.

New songs will be up August 1st. see you all soon,
