(drumkit). Singers and bassists came and went during those early days, but the line-up stabilized in 2007 when Pascal Chiasson (bass) was recruited and the band gigged under the name PRND. In 2009, after a short and decisive search for a new vocalist, Raimundo Gonzalez (voice) solidified the band’s line-up. With fresh blood and a new course charted, the band adopted the name Peribothra and resumed gigging in 2010. Peribothra released their first album (self-titled) in September 2010 and is working hard to spread their music around the world. Even while relentlessly promoting their first born, Peribothra is fervently composing new material for an ambitious second album.
