How did the band come to be?
Renascentia was created in 2015 after the collapse of Elijah and PJ’s previous band. Basically the old band reformed with the idea of combining the heaviest of heavy with more melodic influences.
Do you have any releases coming up in the new year?
We actually just released our new EP “Dead Reflections” on March 20th! We currently don’t have any other releases planned for this year, but you never know. We always have new material in the works.
What is something you want listeners to take away from your music?
Overall, we just want to make our listeners feel something. What exactly they’ll feel depends on the person, their own experiences, and their interpretation of the music. We just hope our music will resonate with people and create a genuine connection! We don’t want to be just “another band”.
With everything that is going on in our world what is one cause or organization that you are passionate about?
No particular organization comes to mind, but we do stand strongly behind secular humanism. Basically the idea that people can be ethical and good without the need for a god or any kind of religious dogma.
What is your writing process like?
It usually starts with someone having an idea; either just a riff, a chorus, or even maybe an entire song. The next step is to record a rough demo of the idea. After that, we sit down together and all inject our ideas and change parts around until it really reflects our sound as a band. We’re still developing the process, but we definitely learn and improve every time!
To follow up with the last question, what inspires your sound?
People, personal experiences, the world around us, other music we like. We find musical inspiration everywhere.
Any tour plans?
No concrete plans at the moment. Things are especially uncertain with COVID-19 affecting the entire industry, but we are excited to get out on the road again as soon as we can! We can’t wait to play more shows, but we understand the importance in preventing the spread of this virus.
