Riley Breckenridge (Thrice) is starting a new band called Puig Destroyer. It’s a baseball-themed grindcore project featuring Mike Minnick (Curl Up & Die) on vocals, Ian Miller and Jon Howell (Kowloon Walled City) and Riley (Thrice) doing drum programming.
We’ve got basic tracking done for our debut EP, and we should have a track from said EP fairly soon. Please stay tuned for updates/tunes. The roughs I’ve heard are ridiculously awesome and fun and raw as all hell.
I'd just like to clarify that this is not a "band" per se, as much as it is a "project". It's all been done virtually (via file-sharing and the like), and there are no plans to tour, but we will have music for you soon and it will be as whimsical and enjoyable as something created in that manner should be.
In short, it's been incredibly fun to conceptualize/write/track. I'm excited for you all to hear it. It's as ridiculous as you might imagine.
the best thing IN THE WORLD would be if yasiel puig used a puig destroyer song in the walk-up song. vin scully would die right there in the broadcast booth.
but seriously, i'm so stoked to hear this. i'm not into grind at all except for genghis tron/an albatross-type stuff, so if it's anything like that, i'm all in. if not, then i'll give it a listen for novelty.
