Destroyer Of Light Announces U.S. Tour

Austin-based doom band Destroyer Of Light has announced a U.S. tour spanning from Texas to the West Coast in June.

Destroyer of Light formed in the beginning of 2012, and each member coming from different bands wanted to create slow, heavy, riff-induced music and wield it toward the masses. Gathering influences from a variety of different styles, each member brings their flavor to the table, and the music speaks for itself.

Destroyer of Light is a 4-piece band consisting of Steve Colca on guitars/vocals, Keegan Kjeldsen on lead guitar, Jeff Klein on bass, and Kelly "Penny" Turner on drums. The band's second EP, "Bizarre Tales Vol. 2" has been released both digitally and on vinyl through Heavy Friends Records. May the power of the riff compel you!
