How did the band come to be?
Before being a band, we were childhood friends! We met each other at school and didn’t separate from this time! We started covering songs from our favorite bands and then wrote our own songs… Twenty years later, the story is still being written with the same crazy team!
Do you have any releases coming up this year?
There’s a lot of new stuff coming up! We just launched our new music video for our song “9th Life”! Then 2021 will be marked with the release of new music videos, new songs… And a lot of surprises! So, stay tuned!!!
What is something you want listeners to take away from your music?
Perséide will remind you of your adolescence!!! We want to make music as we always loved it: with energy and chills! All that we want for our listeners is to enjoy. To feel free to love the music as we love it, no matter the style or influence. In a day of your life, you can be happy, sad, angry, or crazy. The best way to live these emotions is to let them flow through you and to express them without holding back… That’s what we want to share with our music and live shows: you can be all these things at once and music helps us to escape; even for the time of a song or a concert. Living and sharing this with our listeners to make them live these emotions with us to feel better is the most important thing for us.
With everything that is going on in our world, what is one cause or organization that you are passionate about?
Julien (vocals/rhythm guitar): I’m a medical doctor. I usually spend several days in the year travelling in Madagascar to help people in need with the aid organization I’m in at my hospital.
What is your writing process like?
The guitar players start with a basic framework that we propose to the other musicians. Then, we all make musical arrangements to fit everyone’s taste and we play the song in rehearsal and then we play it live. If the song pleases the audience, we keep the final version for recording and drop it right to your ears!
To follow up with the last question, what inspires your sound?
As a medical doctor in anesthesia and critical care, the things I’ve seen in the hospital make me remember that when you’re in good health, you must love your life and seize the day! That’s a concept we like to inject in our lyrics and chords: enjoying the little things that are enjoyable, listening to music, losing yourself in a rock show and live it up!
Any tours coming up soon?
If the situation remains stable, our next tour will take place during 2022! Fingers crossed!!! We hope that it will allow us to book some great gigs with bands we love and keep the inspiration to carry on with this great experience!
Anything you would like to tell our readers?
The shame is to be ashamed. When you give 100% in your passion, you don’t have to be ashamed, you have to be yourself, and enjoy, no matter if you don’t please everybody. The few ones you will please will enjoy with you and truly live the moment.
