Biography

Band Bio: Perestroyka is composed of three accomplished and experienced musicians: James Abbott (guitars, back-up vocals), Cameron Fitzpatrick (bass, lead vocals), and Vincent Russell (percussion, back-up vocals). The three formed the band in middle school, though they had known each other since elementary. Their musicianship has only improved since then and promises to continue with their upcoming graduation from high school. The band takes their music very seriously and hopes to someday make it their career. The band name Perestroyka comes from the Russian word "perestroika," which means "new ways." They stress that it has nothing to do with the Soviet Union's Perestroika, which was an economic restructuring of the Communist empire in the 1980s; they chose the name merely for the meaning and uniqueness of the word. The band's main influences are hard rock, progressive, alternative, and classic rock bands such as Dream Theater, Muse, and Rush. They also greatly appreciate other genres like blues, classical, and metal. However, Perestroyka has a very unique sound and style that "sounds like nothing else currently on the market" according to renown producer Jason Frahm. With the release of their second EP "Anxiety," Pererstroyka hopes to progress into mainstream recognition with intimate guitars, melodic vocals, riffing bass, and thundering drums.

Lyrics

Anxiety

Written By: James Abbott

Here are a few words to help you feel better than you do
Something to help you mend those wounds that
Just won't seem to heal
Here are a few words to help you feel better than you do
Something to help you bear those tears that lie
Just beneath your eyes

The pain that I'm feeling
Just won't ease
Well it won't go away
It consumes me once again

The pain, the fear, the anxiety
Won't let me be
The voices are fighting against me
This demon of tyrrany

Here are a few words to help you see better than you do
Something to help you bear those cold nights
That just won't seem to end
Here are a few words to help you see better than you do
Something to help you bear the load that breaks you down
As you go

The pain that I'm feeling
Just won't ease
Well it won't go away
It consumes me once again

The pain, the fear, the anxiety
Won't let me be
The voices are fighting against me
This demon of tyrrany
