Introducing: Puig Destroyer

Posted by - 11:14 PM on 06/12/13
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.

Kinda like Yasiel Puig.

We’re all very excited an hope that you are too.

To say that I'm interested in this would be a mild understatement. This has actually piqued my interest, as ridiculous as it sounds. I'm looking forward to hearing more about this.

I appreciate the idea a lot. I'm sure they can pull it off. That being said, I don't think I'll be listening.

I'll listen, but I can't imagine this being any good. Sounds like a shits & giggles project to me.

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.

so this is in no way related to the grindcore band Pig Destroyer?

is this just going to be standard grindcore but with lyrics about baseball? Boring. Members being from CUAD and KWC is interesting though, so who knows.

this is the best. idea. ever.

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.

Well they're certainly targeting a niche audience, aren't they?
