PRS: How did you initially discover PRS Guitars?
Perry: It was at one of the Guitar Shows in Olympia back in the 90s. I fell in love with the guitars immediately.
PRS: What are your current go-to PRS models for touring and recording?
Perry: I mainly use a Custom 24 Floyd, I also use the SE variant of the Floyd. We have a few songs in the set that feature an acoustic guitar, so I use a P24 for those.
PRS: What would you say has been the most memorable gig you’ve had to date?
Perry: Our last gig was amazing. We sold out Alexandra Palace in London, 11,000 people, our biggest London show since 2017.
PRS: Do you have any pre-performance rituals, or perhaps a certain piece of gear that must be present at every gig or recording session?
Perry: All I need for any gig or recording session, is my Custom 24 Floyd and a Line 6 Helix. And a capo. And maybe an Ebow. I love my Ebow, I use it WAY too much!
PRS: The Elemental EP was great, is the band currently working on anything new?
Perry: We’ve been working on some new material in our studio, there will be some new material out very soon.
PRS: Your obviously very busy with Pendulum, do you have any spare time for any other projects?
Perry: When I’m not Pendulum-ing, I’m usually producing other artists. The latest being an Australian singer/songwriter called Liz Van Gretsch. I also produce music for TV and Adverts. I recently did the music for a Dolce & Gabbana campaign.
PRS: What artists have you been listening to in your down time lately?
Perry: I’ve been listening to a lot of Sleep Token and The 1975. Two highly contrasting bands, and both quite fantastic.
PRS: What advice would you give to aspiring guitarists?
Perry: It’s a cliché, but practice as much as possible and never turn down any gigs. The busier you are, the more experience you’ll get, and the more musicians you’ll meet. This is the best way to get ahead in the music industry.
