Los Angeles hardcore punk brigade DESTROYED IN SECONDS (AKA D.I.S.) will release their third full-length, Divide And Devour, this April.
Following their lauded Critical Failure (2008) and Becoming Wrath (2013) full-lengths, both released via Deep Six Records, DESTROYED IN SECONDS returns with the riotous fruit of Divide And Devour. Centered on pushing back against the growing wave of far-right populism, authoritarianism, the growing police state, and the rise of neo-nazi/alt-right/Proud Boys and the like, Divide And Devour spews forth eleven tracks of punishing, unrelenting d-beat ferocity. Tracked by drummer Sean Vahle at Architeuthis Sound in North Hollywood, and mixed and mastered by John Haddad (Final Conflict, Phobia) at Trench Studios in Corona, the record includes the addition of bassist Kyle Hertz (Temple Of Dagon, State Of Defiance) and lead guitarist Christian La Rocca (Ruin, Gravehill, Cobra Venom) writing a new chapter of rage and fury for the band.
Divide And Devour — which features the apocalyptic artwork of Mark Richards (Heavy Hand Illustration) and layout by guitarist Bruce Reeves (Warlord Industries) — will be released independently on digital and limited edition cassette formats on April 24th with a vinyl edition to follow.
