Brooklyn’s stoner/doom rock group kings Destroy has launched the band's first music video for the song "Old Yeller," which can be viewed below. “Old Yeller” comes from the band’s self-released debut 7-inch EP.
"’Old Yeller’ was a collaboration between a filmmaker friend of ours named Dave Danesh, and Morgan Nichols,” explains vocalist Steve Murphy. “The idea surrounding it is pretty self-explanatory and goes hand-in-hand with the lyrics. The song is about how the media has been bought off by the US government, and therefore lost its way in terms of protecting our democracy as the fourth check and balance. So grab a nice cold PBR and hail the demise of our glorious nation.”
Kings Destroy, Brooklyn’s up-and-coming doom/stoner rock outfit, released their debut 7-inch EP on Tuesday. The self-titled EP was recorded by Mike Moebius at Moonlight Mile studios in Hoboken, NJ. The tracks “Old Yeller” and "Medusa" are currently available for streaming on the band’s official MySpace page.
Kings Destroy played their EP release show Wednesday night at the Cake Shop in Manhattan, donating proceeds to the members of the band Torche, who were robbed while on tour in Chicago earlier this month. The band is still accepting donations for Torche, via Paypal to the email address: TLCforTorche@gmail.com.
The band will head into the Water Music recording studio in Hoboken, NJ this June, to record their debut full-length record with producer Sanford Parker (Yob, Pelican, Nachtmystium). The full-length is expected to be released this fall.
