Over the past two years, Dancing With Paris has been making their mark in the Canadian metal and hardcore scene. Their energetic live shows, down-to-earth mentality, and dedication to their ever-expanding fan base truly set them apart from other bands in the genre. During the past year, Dancing With Paris played over 85 shows across Canada, including four tours and appearances at multiple festivals and showcases. In the course of this they appeared with multiple giants of the current hardcore and metal scene including Vanna, A Plea for Purging, We Came As Romans, and Abandon All Ships.

The Drought was recorded this past winter, thanks to a FACTOR grant from the Canadian Government. After locking themselves away for months to write and record the new album, Dancing With Paris are ready to hit the ground running. They are continuing on their Ontario weekend stints leading up to the album release.
