Attention all budding drummers out there: UK label Bella Union are recruiting one lucky percussionist to join one of the roster's touring bands. 

The label, run by former Cocteau Twins bassist Simon Raymonde (pictured below at Bella Union HQ), is home to the likes of Beach House, The Flaming Lips (above), Spiritualized, Tim Burgess, Midlake, Explosions In The Sky, and Father John Misty, though it's highly likely that they're auditioning for the live set-up of one of the lesser-known names attached to the Brighton-based label. 

On their social channels, Raymonde posted: "If you’re an exceptionally talented young drummer based in the UK interested in joining one of Bella Union’s bands for live touring etc, can you send me an email ([email protected]) with your info & phone no and a covering note with your influences, and preferably a link to a video showcasing your skills?".

If you're both keen on their roster and feel you've got what it takes, then email using 'DRUMMER AUDITION' as the subject header. Best of luck!
