Profile

Sur la scène, ils chantent vite, tapent avec force sur les tambours et hochent du chef au rythme de leurs compositions faites d’un rock cathartique. Tout ça en français, merci beaucoup. (…) les deux frères derrière Ponctuation, sont de vrais esprits rock. Sophie Chartier, Le devoir

There’s always been a rawness and fearless authenticism to French artists that I have always admired and it was no different with this band. Their sun-kissed tunes were perfect for the place they were playing. Tiana Feng, Ride the Tempo

Watch the music video for La réalité me suffit, co-written by Maxime Chiasson (Ponctuation's drummer) and directed by Thomas B. Martin. At the fall of 2015, Ponctuation went on an european tour, performing both in France and Switzerland.

Recorded live and on the fly in St-Roch, Quebec City, the band has put forth their best sound yet. These tracks (recorded on a Tascam 388) ooze with poetry, confidence and distortion.

"Why must we be both the skyscraper and the blueprint?" These lyrics from Poésie automatique served as inspiration to artists Louis-Alexandre Beauregard and Thomas B. Martin for the record’s artwork. La réalité nous suffit is a brilliant second album which reminds us to live life to the fullest as time passes us by.
