Opportunity to Go to the Next Level

Do I remain or rise? From a local Craigslist ad:
8 Seconds is now looking for a drummer to start in Feb, 2015. Someone who is familiar with newer top 40 country, some traditional and classic rock. We are looking for someone who is ready to make some new memories in 2015. Schedule can be hectic at times but worth it. Must be able to travel some and able to commit. We work hard to achieve a specific sound and that is what we are looking to keep moving forward. Please contact Mike to set up an audition at the email listed or call. Looking forward to hearing from you.
