Perish the Red Army: solo project by Dre Perish from California, US (E107)

About: Perish The Red Army

Perish the Red Army: a solo project of Dre Perish from California, US played in E107 of the ArenaCast.

Dre Perish started this project as a solution to counter with his chronic insomnia. His music is very personal, abstracted, full of shamanic rhythms, hypnotic guitars, pain, joy and hope. Please visit Dre`s bandcamp page where you can download Perish the Red Army debut album "Breathe Like A Dragon" for "name your price", and please note the warning before the video for "Under a Spell".

1. How do you see yourself in 5 years? What is your main goal as an artist?
As far as the future goes I'm going to be putting a band together in the fall that will perform the songs live. I'm hoping that within the next five years I will be a successfully functioning artist and have the ability to tour further out of California.
There are so many great music towns in the states and I have always thought traveling on tour would be a cool way to see the them. That also goes for the rest of the world.

2. What do you think of episode 107? Which of the other featured songs do you like the most?
It's taken a while to respond but i've been pretty busy these last couple of weeks working on music. I did finally get a chance to listen to the podcast and i think it's just great what you are doing for these bands and myself as well. There definitely needs to be more insight into new unsigned unheard music in today's bustling internet world.
"Slush Fund Blues" by Streaming Lights was catchy as hell. And I enjoyed that Kill For Company track too. It had a cool brit-rock feel to it that I love. Reminded me of Supergrass.

3. Is there a story behind your song "Someone 2 Love"?
As far as my song goes there's not much of a story behind the song except for the common idea that most people go in and out of life looking for love, building relationships. And losing them of course. It's something I happen to have some experience in.

4. Please share your nearest plans. What are you currently working on?
Like I said before I'm currently working on new songs that are gonna be for the followup to "Breathe Like A Dragon", my first album.

The video contains some explicit scenes. Beware.
