Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows Release D.R.U.G.S. on Decaydance/Sire
Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows, fronted by singer and songwriter Craig Owens, are releasing their debut album, entitled D.R.U.G.S., on Decaydance/Sire Records February 22, 2011. To preview the release the band is releasing one song a day leading up to street date, along with a visual accompaniment as interpreted by director Kristopher Rey-Talley. Videos have premiered on MTV, Kerrang, Alternative Press, AOL Noisecreep, FriendsOrEnemies.com and more and can be seen on www.thisisdrugs.com. The official video for the first single "Sex Life" will premiere soon.
After Owens left his previous band, which he had fronted since 2001, he turned his energy toward creating a new project that would eclipse anything he'd done in the past by founding Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows. Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows pairs Owens with From First To Last guitarist Matt Good, Matchbook Romance drummer Aaron Stern, Story Of The Year bassist Adam Russell and Underminded guitarist Nick Martin. Though they had never played together before, they have put their undeniable chemistry as a unit to use creating something vital and new.
Recorded in Los Angeles, CA with John Feldmann, (The Used, Panic at the Disco), Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows' debut is the most aggressive album Owens has made in his musical career, yet it still retains the keen sense of melody that has helped him become one of today's most celebrated front men. "It was so cathartic making this record because music is my form of therapy," he explains.
To support the album, Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows will be co-headlining the AP Tour 2011 this spring. The nationwide run kicks off March 18th in Dallas, TX and includes a stop at SXSW. The band will also grace a cover of the April issue of Alternative Press, which hits stands March 1st. For ticket information please visit www.theaptour.ning.com
