In 2015, Vancouver based Indie Synth-Rock outfit Derrival, released their EP "Departure & Arrival," became finalists of the inaugural Allan Slaight Juno Master Class, and in 2014 came 2nd place Peak Performance Project.


Vancouver based Indie-Rock outfit Derrival combines synth-heavy elements of bands like Phoenix and CHVRCHES with guitar driven hooks and melodies reminiscent of Two Door Cinema Club and Young the Giant. 
Formed in 2009 by combining high-school bands, the 5-piece quickly developed a bond like brothers. They have since undergone University programs to develop the skillsets of a record label for releasing their own music. The band’s latest 2015 EP “Departure & Arrival”, is a decompression of the group name Derrival. The EP’s first single entitled “Original Script” debuted in 2014 and led the band to winning a highly coveted top prize in the BC PEAK Performance Project. The band will be touring across North America in 2015 to support the newly released EP.

The name Derrival is a merging of the words ‘departure’ and ‘arrival’. This is appropriate as the band is characterized by not staying still. They are a moving and evolving act, but the constant is the music and energy they bring with them. That stays long after.
