Guitarist Matteo Di Gioia adds: “We were really tempted to enjoy our scout camp with cross camping skiing tournament, tea party debate and knitting workshop week, BUT we chose to tour Europe with fucking Protest The Hero, Faceless and The Contortionist instead. We can’t wait to share the stage with these outstanding bands, this tour is gonna be totally sick! See you there everybody!“
“It may be early to be talking about the discovery of the year, but the evidence is all too readily available. You need this band in your life.” Metal Hammer UK
“technical enough to wow the pants off of virtuoso players worldwide, it’s also an extremely fun record that’s hard not to find catchy” MetalInsider.net
“Are You Kidding Me? No. is an electric middle finger in the face of compartmentalization…above all, AYKM?N is a fun album. It mixes the skillset and tightness of every single member into a blender and spits out 100% grade-A goldstuff, but it knows where to bring in the right riffs and solos; where to jam out and when to build.” TheMonolith.com
DESTRAGE launched a trailer on the Metal Blade Records youtube channel recently to serve as a preview of their extensive studio documentary. The band documented and discussed the creative process behind “Are You Kidding Me? No” at length, including: Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal’s guest solo, interviews with the team behind every step of the production, individual tracking performances, and much more. This feature length film by director Giulia Gargano, is of a quality one would generally expect to see for sale as a bonus DVD. Watch the entire documentary and get to know DESTRAGE like you never have before now at youtube.com/destrage.
DESTRAGE recorded “Are You Kidding Me? No.” at RecLab Studios with Larsen Premoli and at Adrenaline Studio with Daniele Nelli. Mixing and mastering was done by Will Putney at The Machine Shop in New Jersey. The cover illustration was done by Marco Tafuri and the layout was completed by The Jack Stupid. Videos for “Purania” and “My Green Neighbour” can be seen at metalblade.com/destrage now.
