Kings Destroy vocalist Steve Murphy states:
In an age where music is created in the box and listened to from the cloud we present our self-titled third album as tangible a thing as we could make it. We recorded this live. Five musicians standing in a room together playing through amps that have tubes in them, on drums that were not aided by any magical electronics, through microphones and a voice that was not altered in any way. Does it have flaws because of it? Fuck yes. The flaws represent us, both strengths and weaknesses. Nothing a bottle of Bourbon or two couldn’t smooth over. This album is a straight up representation of the Kings Destroy personality. Equally as likely to scoff at the present, make fun of the past, and long for the future taking on any and all obstacles in our path.
Kings Destroy gets its moniker from an infamous graffiti gang from the Bronx, circa late ’70s/early ’80s. The band members met in this vicinity and were heavily involved in the New York Hardcore scene of the late ’80s that merged hardcore music, metal, graffiti, and hip-hop… all distinct forms united in the underground.
