Ponctuation, founded by brothers Guillaume and Maxime Chiasson, released their debut album 27 Club in March 2013, which they recorded on tape at studio Hotel2Tango in Montreal with Howard Bilerman. Their music’s raw energy and catchy melodies transfer brilliantly to their live performances, and the brothers have performed at many large-scale festivals such Pop Montréal, Festival d'Été de Québec, FrancoFolies de Montréal, NxNE, Sappy Fest, FMEAT, Osheaga, Canadian Music Week and TransMusicales de Rennes (France). 27 Club earned them a nomination for Rock Album of the Year at the ADISQ Gala, and three GAMIQ nominations for Rock Album of the Year, Discovery of the Year and Show of the Year. In March 2014, Ponctuation won the Emerging Francophone Artist of the Year award at the SiriusXM Indies.
Two years after the release of 27 Club, the brothers ramped it up with their self-produced album La réalité nous suffit. Shifting from heavy garage rock to psychedelic slacker-punk, the project possesses the same vivacity as their first effort. La réalité nous suffit was released on April 28th 2015. Recorded live on-they-fly on a Tascam 388 in St-Roch, Quebec City, the tracks ooze with poetry, confidence and distortion. The album gave them the opportunity to return to Europe and work with Casbah Records. They ultimately got a GAMIQ nomination for Best Rock Album of the Year, and won the GAMIQ for Best Album Cover of the Year (designed by Louis-Alexandre Beauregard and Thomas B. Martin)
