They’re creepy and they’re spooky. They’re all together a rising musical upstart whose brand of old timey horror music complete with children’s choir has people disturbed and wholly entertained. But now Dead Man’s Bones, the duo of Zach Shields and Ryan Gosling, are looking to spread their supernatural love story and are looking for talented individuals to help them put on a show.
Per ANTI-‘s blog, the boys are looking for five to eight acts to open for them at each of their upcoming North American engagement. Everybody from bands (no more than four and no sound check or full equipment set-ups) to sword swallowers to whatever freaky thing you do to worry your parents can apply. Obviously, Halloween-themed acts will be given preferential treatment. Send your submission (video) through email or via snail mail at:
Attn: Dead Man’s Bones Talent Show
2798 Sunset Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90026
The band’s self titled album will be available October 6th.
