Moon Destroys (ex-Torche, ex-Royal Thunder) have released a new collection of demos that they recorded in 2009 under the name Stallone. You can purchase that set on Bandcamp. With this news, the band have also premiered a new video for “Wondrous Beast”:
Juan Montoya (ex-Torche, etc.) commented:
“In this time of seemingly widespread forlorn hope, we are releasing this music as a love letter for those struggling to bear with the solitude and frustration. All of us musicians are feeling an emptiness right now.. Being away from our close friends and bandmates is making us a bit mental. We needed something to temporarily distract us from stress and show you how ridiculous we can be while we’re alone.”
Evan Diprima (ex-Royal Thunder, etc.) added:
“Filming the video was the most fun I’ve had in social isolation thus far and represents cabin fever at its finest. We are excited for you to see the slow decline of my mental state. Carole Baskin killed her husband.
These demos are raw and have no boundaries. This collection is the first installment of what would become Moon Destroys many years later and are some of my favorite recordings of all time.”
