We are The Prestige, from Paris. France.
Paris has always been filled with clichés of romantic love and bright lights over the river Seine but those was has spent time in the French capital could speak a different portrait of the City of Lights. Filthy streets and the heady smell of piss in the metro corridors are the real face of Paris and this is what bred The Prestige upon writing their second."Paris is the city we were born and grew up in. We love our city as much as we hate it. And it naturally became the background of this new record"explains Alex Diaz, singer and guitarist.
This new record draws a new face of the Parisian quartet and pushes even forward the boundaries set on critically acclaimed debut album Black Mouths. Darker and heavier, the band's new effort is driven by raw bitterness. It is the golden hopes that don't shine anymore. It is the mumbling of a disillusioned youth that grew up too fast. And that struggles to explode.
Members of The Prestige wear their hearts firmly emblazoned on their chest. "This band is not simply a musical hobby we have on weekends. This band is our statement." sums up drummer Thibaut Cavelier. In the past couple of years they dragged their passionate shows throughout Europe and UK, opening for The Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, Stray From the Path, August Burns Red, The Secret, Hierophant, Raein, Liferuiner, Goodtime Boys. And, feeding their passion further, they decided to carry the torch to Cuba and played 8 shows in front of one of the most incredible crowds of 1000 people in La Habana. They encapsulated this life changing trip on their documentary "Dark Was The Night" directed and shot by Berzerker and released in February on Dillinger Escape Plan Ben Weinman's new creative platform Party Smasher Inc..
