Divinity Destroyed have posted the following update regarding the progress of their new website and new album on their myspace page.
Dan here speaking on behalf of Divinity Destroyed. We would like to extend our gratitude to everyone who came to support us at Rutgers and in the city at Siberia. It was good to see some old friends. We did have some major technical difficulties at Rutgers but hopefully no one was paying attention enough to notice. We certainly didn't.
Although we haven't had too much action with our website in the past few weeks, I assure you the new divinitydestroyed.com is being constructed. I'm serious. I saw it. It was...awesome. We will have some good stuff on there including videos for you guys to watch. It's about time you guys saw us for who we really are, a bunch of immature dildos." More...
