Destruction Unit

Arizona’s noise punk outfit Destruction Unit just wrapped up a national tour but isn’t planning on staying put for long. The band just released the first single off of its upcoming LP, Deep Trip, and the disorienting five-minute track is somewhat of a reflection of what the group has in store for the rest of the year. “The World on Drugs” is a manic offering that overflows with massive guitar barrages and heavy feedback, leaving not a moment of breathing room for listeners to really process what’s going on.

The five desert dwellers of Destruction Unit have found themselves in the same chaotic territory as they prepare to kick off another cross-country tour in August. The band will be stopping in San Francisco to take over Hemlock Tavern on Monday, August 26th, and will taking a short two-week break at the end of September before leaving for a European tour that will keep be on the road until mid-November.
