Guillemots launch search for new member

Band appeal for new female vocalist

The idea was sparked after one of their saxophone players, Alex J Ward, decided to take a break from the band to concentrate on other projects.

Guillemots want a female vocalist who can play an instrument to help add something different to their sound for 2008.
