Indie Rock Band Going Metal
Hi We’re the indie rock band known as Eastern Anchors and we are looking for the right look, pro attitude and a player with style and chops to complete our circle on rythm guitar. You must have your own gear and be willing to travel on weekends as we will be playing lots of fucking amazing stages all over the place. It’s ok if you are a vegetarian or formerly straight edge. Tattoos optional. We only have one between us to be fair!
We have a strong twitter following so tweet us your pics and links @EasternAnchors or EasternAnchors at Gmail or post to our facebook.com/EasternAnchors We have several promotional videos in production. Check out our previous videos on our channel youtube.com/VivalaHara
Here is our craig’s list advertisment: Metal Tribute Band Member Wanted
This is our tour bus
We have a used tour bus called Lucky Streak that we just bought from a Judas Priest tribute band. We are all in the limo driver business and do this band thing to make real money.
Please send us your demos and photos. If you have a audition video even better. Send that for us to review. You have to show us you are into this and really want this awesome paying gig. We have a manager who is willing to spill his guts for keeping metal alive.
Our sound borrows the look of 80’s but we sound like 70’s metal. We are going to cover contemporary music people will appreciate at Beach Clubs, Theme Parks and Metal clubs a lot around the East Coast.
We used to be a indie rock band but that did not pay the 1,000’s of dollars we should be making for our music.
This is out new direction and we think it is a bad ass idea so YOU should join us and show us what you got. EDM style music is ok but the look is not right.
This is your chance to show the hipsters what real music is like and supposed to be played like.
- Don’t pass up this situation.
- No Time wasters need apply.
- Must be a decent player.
- Must have chops
- No Druggies
Check out our latest album called Drunken Arts and Pure Science.
It’s not often Walter gets to tell the editors of Rolling Stone something but on Doom’s Day Eastern Anchors were featured on RollingStone.com Daily Download with our song “Leading with your right” but it happened. The photo was taken just for this bit of press by our good friend and fashion and lifestyle photographer Roderick Angle. There’s a couple more photos from that session on our contact page if you want to check them out. He made the band look fairly handsome but still 90’ish.
If you are not already please follow us on twitter or stalk our facebook page for the latest on what we’re wearing and saying…

Going back like 15 years Walter wrote “Red 5 (Standing by)” for our old band Aviso’Hara. We subsequently recorded the song about 3 times and never imagined that the little raw guitar notes would end up in public service announcement about saving trees. The band was always about slaying them down with our wood axes but alas in our more mature years we are humbly flattered that film maker Lorena Cejudo asked us to contribute a tune to her project. Plant a tree not just on earth day!

The band recently donated a couple songs to two Sandy Hurricane Benefit music compilations. Please support these. We know everybody is doing what they can so every little bit hopefully will do some good and rebuild our shores. We all were affected in some way and it’s going to be many years before things will be repaired. There will probably be a lot of back room deals from the Billions of dollars that are needed to do the job. These comps go directly to help people in need while we wait for the re-construction.
Hey Sandy, We’re Still Here. (A Hurricane Benefit) – Features a ton of NJ and NY bands put out by our Bro’s The Everymen.
Sandy Reliefe Cooperative – Features a unreleased single called “No Maps”
We know we have some obvious bugs to deal with related to this theme. Eventually we’ll give this some design and content love soon! Stay tuned…
