Destroy This Place LP Release Show

I always wonder what would have happened if Kurt Cobain wouldn't have passed away in 1994. Would music and the world be different than it is today? Would grunge have continued to grow in popularity? Would Britney Spears be able to write and release “Hit Me Baby One More Time” in 1999 and usher in a new era of pop bullshit clogging up the radio airwaves? We may never know what could have or would have been, but the reason that I bring this up is that I have an idea of what music may have sounded like if it didn't take a turn for the worse.
I have been listening to Destroy This Place’s new self titled LP that is being released this Friday at P.J’s Lager House. When I listen to it, I keep thinking, "this is where music was supposed to go." I can feel the 90s in the album, but with heavier elements and indie rock influences scattered into the mix. It is an album that I can put on and listen to from stop to finish and not have to skip a track. I love that the band switches up the singer and the drums are loud and heavy just the way that I like them. They recorded this record with Mike Bridavsky at Russian Recordings in Bloomfield, Indiana and it was mastered in Chicago by Bob Weston. You can pre-order a copy of the new album here or pick one up this Friday at the release show.

This Friday, Destroy This Place will be playing with Touch the Clouds, Palaces, and Braided Veins at P.J’s Lager House.. Doors for the show are at 9 p.m. and $10 gets you in the door, holding a new copy of the record, with a download code for those of you that do not listen to vinyl. It should be a fun time and we will all be in house dancing and supporting our friends during their big release. Check out the new album and the new video for "Graves" that was released about a month ago and come out to hear what music is supposed to sound like.
