PERCEIVED SPEAKS

 


1.Thanks for taking the time to talk to The Metal Times! You have a new album out, Tell us about it!

 

We’ll be releasing our debut album on Fri Oct 30th. We’ve working on the album for a year and a half. The EP will include the singles ‘Living Hell’, ‘Not to Be’, ‘Portrayed Belief’, and ‘Darkening’.

 

2.Where was it recorded? Is all the material new?

 

We actually recorded all of the music in our rehearsal space with Daniel Contreras except for the vocals. Those were recorded by Nick Forkel who also mixed, mastered, and produced everything. Half of the material is actually around 20 years old. After getting back together we finished the songs that were started in the late 90’s/early 2000’s.

 

3.What is the biggest difference between your last release and the new one?

 

This is our first release but we’re hoping that our next release could possibly be a full length album vs an EP.

 

4.Are you signed to a label? , If so which one and how did they help or support the process?

 

No. We prefer to stay independent. With the internet the way it is today, labels aren’t really a necessity.

 

5.What has been going on with the band between albums? Did you tour?

 

With everything that’s been going on with Covid, we haven’t had a chance to play any live shows so we focused our energy on releasing our debut EP. We’ve been putting out singles since August which you can get on all major streaming platforms or download them for free from Perceivedband.com.

 

6.Do you have any new members?

 

Nope. It’s just been us three since we began writing together. It wouldn’t be the same band without all of us. Each one of us bring something unique to the table that can’t be replaced.

 

7.Who produced the new album and how did they effect the album?

 

Nick Forkel is the mastermind behind our debut album. He mixed, mastered, and produced the whole thing and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. He definitely gave it the bottom end and clarity we were looking for.

 

8.Some like to record naked or in the dark with candles , Did you have any strange studio practices?

 

The vocals were actually recorded in a closet with nothing but a blue light on while consuming m&m’s.

 

9.Of course tell us where to pick up your album and how to learn more about you.

 

You can always get one at our live shows or just visit our website at Perceivedband.com where we have all sorts of merch as well as our debut abum on CD.

 

10.What is your plans now that the new album is out?

 

Our plans are to play as many live shows as possible. Hopefully 2021 will be the year we have our first tour.
