Poison Gas is a formed band raised in Belo Horizonte by four young boys born between 2003 and 2004. In its repertoire are great classics from Rock n’ Roll, some of them considered hymns by the Rock n’ Roll generation.
From these influences, they started writing their own compositions, which are played live, already. Their first singles are available in all digital platforms such as Spotify, Deezer and iTunes. In 2018 they launched their first music video – Desconstrução – listed among Classic Rock Magazine’s ‘Tracks of the Week’ in march. In 2019 they have launched their first album, recorded in studio, ‘Outro Jovem Sem Noção’.
The first presentations took place at the school where the four band members study in Belo Horizonte, in the second semester of 2015. Yet at this time, colleagues, teachers and the audience of the school got amazed with the performance of the band. From that point on, Poison Gas established weekly rehearsals in a recording studio, to broaden their repertoire, work in detail the compositions and improve their musical abilities. The group took a sudden leap from the first shows in small stages to presentations in big festivals and great events, and saw their audience expand expressively.
Poison Gas has already been presented in two editions of FICC - Festival Internacional de Cerveja e Cultura (International Festival of Culture and Beer), 2016 performed at Mangabeiras Park (the biggest park in Belo Horizonte) and 2017 at Expominas (a huge exposition park in the city); several editions of Festival Experimente; the stadium Mineirão in the Tribune on opening matches from Brazilian Championship of Soccer; Festival de Primavera in Alphaville (event with established artists such as Marcelo D2 and Paralamas do Sucesso); Jazz and Blues Festival of Tiradentes/MG 2017; World Rock Day 2017 in Belo Horizonte (event with Joel Hoesktra, Whitesnake member), beyond diverse events with an expressive audience, in festivals and important venues, both in Belo Horizonte such as the country cities of Minas Gerais.
The band has already presented in big events, for instance in the opening of Capital Inicial concert in Belo Horizonte on November 2016, for more than 5000 people, with a huge success and being recognized, both by the audience and the band members from Capital Inicial; and also at Festival Planeta Brasil, a mega event held at the Esplanade of the Stadium Mineirão on January 2017, with an estimated audience of 30,000 people, closing up the Stage Circuito de Verão, simultaneously to the shows of Skank and Planet Hemp.
From there on, with increasing success and recognition, the group has already been interviewed on Radio 98 FM, Portal SouBH and Portal BHAZ, came out in newspaper articles of Belo Horizonte and in the specialized platform of Rock Metal Hammer (site teamrock.com).
In December 2017 they have presented at BH local BeatleWeek and, having caused an impression in the British organizers of the International BeatleWeek, who were present at the show, they were invited to play in Liverpool/UK in 2018 edition. In August, they have played in legendary stages, such as The Cavern Club’s Front Stage and Live Lounge, where The Beatles – among several great world class artists – have had hundreds of gigs. Both British and international public’s reception was hearty, having Poison Gas been considered one of the highlights by the event’s organizers.
