In 2009, upon the dissolution of their previous, well-received band This Machine Is Me, singer Jayna Doyle and guitarist Blake Arambula reached a common crossroads almost all artists come to at some point in life. When a band you've invested a lot of time in comes to a halt, it causes a bit of an identity crisis and can lead an artist to question whether it’s worth picking up the pieces and going through the entire process of putting a new group together all over again.
Some say, "Screw it," and get on with "real life," but, luckily for fans of hooky, perky ElectroRock, Doyle and Arambula decided that, yes, any and all hassle was worth it if they got to pursue their passion. The twosome added a few band members (guitarist Patrick Beardsley, bassist Patrick North and drummer Bryan Bass now make up the rest of the band) and launched Death of Paris with full force.
ElectroRock crew Death of Paris plays Mayday Saturday with Founding Fathers, Great Young Hunters and Oui Si Yes. Go here to read Mike Breen's full Sound Advice.
