Trying to complete a Post-Punk/Deathrock band - Know any players?

Beryl Beloved is an alternative rock outfit looking for an additional Guitarist, a Drummer and a Bassist. We're based in Colorado Springs, but working in a studio near Denver; so pretty open to practice space at an in-between point if you're closer to Denver than we are. If you're in the Springs, well - even better! I have original material and would like to get a couple more people behind me so we can all take this to the next level. Preference is that you be over 18, or at least not tied up too much with school.

The genres are mainly Post-Punk, New Wave, and Gothic Rock, but it's based around all kinds of modes of Classic Rock.
Influences range from the Beatles to Bowie, from Siouxsie & the Banshees to U2, and a slew of things in between. A lot of you here are going to be familiar with the Sisters of Mercy, the March Violets, the Southern Death Cult or The Cult, Bauhaus, Christian Death, Joy Division, The Cure, Virgin Prunes - so you should know exactly where this project is rooted. I'm not necessarily looking for technical wizards, but just people who know where this is coming from stylistically and/or can develop a good feel for this very quickly.

I have opportunities now working with an experienced producer (of 20+ years) and a sound engineer in Morrison/Littleton. Band members need to be willing to spend a good chunk of Saturdays recording in Morrison as well as have transportation (you are welcome to ride along). Plan on two or three practices a week (I'm flexible time-wise) so we can be prepared for every studio session we schedule. Once we're able to lay down a good amount of studio material, we're going to jump right into heavy distribution and promotion. The producer I'm working with has all of the right connections - no nonsense.

I want to get this off the ground and into the spotlight. Recording, putting out records, and touring are all on the table. NO drugs or baggage, no funny business, no slackers. I'm looking for people who are confident with what they're doing, both off and on stage. If this sounds like a fit for any of you here, or you otherwise know someone, just comment. I can give you some contact info personally after that.
