Puig Destroyer Stream Baseball-Themed “Batflip”

The baseball season is slowly coming to an end and teams are fighting to the “grind” to either be on top of their respective division or for the last wild card spot before the postseason begins. With this being said, Puig Destroyer are streaming another song today off their self-titled debut that is all about baseball.

The song is called “Batflip” and it is another short song that is filled with banging drums and tremolo/harmonic guitars with aggression like its preceding songs “Mike Trout” and “No One Cares About Your Fantasy Team.” The album will be …

Puig Destroyer Stream “No One Cares About Your Fantasy Team”

With the baseball season nearing its end, grindcore/baseball mogul-filled band Puig Destroyer released another song today.

Premiering on Deadspin, the track is called “No One Cares About Your Fantasy Team” and it’s a blazing 48-second song literally about no one caring about your fantasy team. The track is part of a twenty-song slew of baseball-related subjects like the previous single they released named “Mike Trout”, who is about none other than the Los Angeles Angels star.

The debut full-length from the band will be released September 30 via No Sleep Records and you can pre-order the album here

Riley Breckenridge Posts New Puig Destroyer Tracks

If you’ve been keeping up with the members of Thrice and what they’re doing now, you’ve certainly heard of Riley Breckenridge and his involvement with Puig Destroyer; one intense, loud, almost thrash-filled project that’s as entertaining as it is terrifying.

It’s quite the departure from Thrice, but that’s half of the fun. With every track he releases, I just find myself laughing more. The metal roots that were heard in some of Riley’s drumming all throughout the existence of Thrice are alive and more evolved than ever before, and its fitting. It’s also sure to abandon some of you and …

Dustin Kensrue Announces Second Solo Album, Streams Song Originally Intended For Thrice

Ever since former Thrice frontman Dustin Kensrue released Please Come Home years ago fans have been chomping at the bit for information regarding additional solo recordings. There was a holiday album at one point, but we would be lying if we said that satisfied our craving for Kensrue’s signature voice. Now, after more than a year out of the spotlight, Kensrue has announced plans to follow his debut with a new album release later this year.

Hitting stores October 1 via BEC Recordings/Mars Hill Music, The Water and The Blood will be the first musical offering from Kensrue since Thrice …

The most exciting part of the news, besides the awesome cover, is the fact O’Brother will be appearing on Manchester Orchestra’s track. We did not even consider a curve ball like that from either band. There is currently no set release date but we will keep up on the latest news from each group.

“Finally. Coming Soon.…”
