Ferndale post-punks Destroy This Place are preparing for the release of their new self-titled album, due for a May release.
According to the press release, “With their new album, simply, fittingly, titled Destroy This Place, the band sought to refine their assets, while adding even more intensity and heaviness to their already pulverizing jams. Captured expertly by Mike Bridavsky (BLK JKS, Rogue Wave, Good Luck, Murder By Death, Magnolia Electric Co., etc) at Russian Recordings in Bloomington, IN, and mastered in Chicago by none other than Bob Weston (member of Shellac and Mission of Burma, producer and mastering man on too many classic albums to list), what you'll find within Destroy This Place is something in line with the recent resurgence of "guitar rock" (did it ever go away?), but with an even keener sense of melody, intricacy, energy, and real life lyrics, all played by some real-ass dudes. No doubt, these are 11 muscular, pop anthems designed to be cranked.”
City Slang wrote a feature on the band almost a year ago, in which we said that, “That's Destroy This Place in a nutshell. The self-proclaimed "least cool band in Detroit" that is one of the most cool as a result. They play kick ass pop-rock with a punk rock edge, and they give a shit what it sounds like. “
Fortunately, they continue to sound great.Follow @City_Slang
