After a prolonged absence from the Irish music scene, independent rock band Mesner are to make a much-anticipated return to their alternative rock roots in 2009 and are looking for a bass player to join their band.

Mesner will be holding auditions for a bass player in the coming weeks and the successful candidate will be thrown into the life in a professional rock band that is about to start promoting its newly-recorded album.

On the band"s diary is an extensive tour of Ireland and the UK, and anyone interested in auditioning to fill that bass roll can contact Bobby on 085/1281811 for an application form.

The band has recently returned to Ireland after a successful eighteen-month stint in Los Angeles, during which they recorded their first-ever album and created a stir on the well-renowned Sunset Strip, with impressive live performances in venues like the Viper Room, Cat Club and Whisky Agogo.

Produced by LA rock producer Mark Paladino, Mesner"s debut album, Illegally Mellow, is due out on their own independent label in the summer of 2009. The record contains 11 strong original tracks that range from up-tempo rock anthems like Only For You, NM Stone and Where Is Your Head At to more chilled, melancholic tracks like Picture, Everyone"s In Need, and title track Illegally Mellow.

Mesner are best known in Ireland for their electric live performances in the late 90"s and early 00"s, and their four chart-topping singles (Flowers, Black n Orange, St Jesus Uncle God and Saturday). Mesner have spent the past few years writing new material and developing the band"s sound, while recording and performing to audiences in the US.

Armed with an edgy alternative rock sound, exceptional musicianship, inspired song writing, instantly recognizable lead vocals and a strong work ethic, Mesner is sounding bigger and better than ever before. These Irish rocksters have worked extremely hard to bring the project this far independently and are determined to work even harder in the next twelve months to make their long awaited debut album a massive success on both sides of the Atlantic.
