Local band Perish on the run

Band finds support from rock legend Marc LaFrance

After spending the later part of 2010 in the studio, Canadian rock artists Jeff Noyes, Bruce Graham and Devon Pichè, who form the group The Perish, have emerged with a brand new album entitled Can You Hear Us Now?

After a lot of hard work and knocking on doors, The Perish got the attention of Delinquent Records’ president Marc LaFrance.

You may have seen Marc LaFrance play drums recently if you caught the Grey Cup half time show on TV.

LaFrance is the drummer for the well known rock group BTO (Bachman Turner Overdrive).

LaFrance has a stunning career under his belt, playing drums and doing vocals on many well known albums and radio hits. He has performed on albums from Alice Cooper, Bon Jovi, David Lee Roth, Motley Crue, The Cult, and more.

LaFrance has his own rock band, Cease & Desist, and is currently playing drums on tour with BTO.

LeFrance found The Perish album to be of interest, and The Perish have agreed to a deal with Delinquent Records to promote the album. The timing could not be more perfect, as The Perish were just in the beginning stages of planning a small Canadian tour, which is now going to be much larger than originally anticipated.

The Perish are fired up and ready for their Canadian tour which is slated to take off in mid- April 2011. The Perish will be playing five to six days per week all the way from B.C. to Prince Edward Island and back again.

The tough schedule is a challenge group is looking forward to.

“We’ve worked for this all our lives. We’re excited and eager to get out there on stage this year,” stated Jeff Noyes, the lead vocalist and guitar player for the band.

Devon Pichè plays the bass and Bruce Graham is the man behind the drums. The guys in the group are versatile musicians and do play other instruments as well, on both their albums and during live performances.

In this second album being released by The Perish through Delinquent Records, you can hear influences of more modern rock music blended with guitars, drums and vocals that take you back to the early days of Van Halen. A real treat for rock music lovers of all sorts.

The Perish plan to have tour dates posted as early as March and will be posting more dates as they are booked.
