Philadelphia's TOTAL FUCKING DESTRUCTION has issued the following update:
"TOTAL FUCKING DESTRUCTION will totally fucking destroy the CMJ/Translation Loss Records showcase coming up this Saturday, October 20 at the Ace of Clubs in New York City. TOTAL FUCKING DESTRUCTION plays at 11:30 p.m. sharp and the lineup is filled with awesome TL bands like JAVELINA, ROSETTA, IREPRESS and others.
"As you all know, TOTAL FUCKING DESTRUCTION prefers to end our tours with a bang and the tour we've just finished with RWAKE was not an exception. As we were leaving Chicago to return home, we were caught in the middle of a car chase on a bridge involving a stolen car, a stolen tow truck and four police cars. The stolen tow truck was being chased against the flow of traffic and collided with our van head-on. Our van and gear were completely destroyed, but we were able to walk away with only minor injuries: TOTAL FUCKING DESTRUCTION lives to grind another day, fuck yeah!!!
"Regardless of that fuck-up: the tour we've just finished with RWAKE was awesome! great shows, great people, greats parties!!! We want to thank RWAKE (probably the most amazing heavy band on the planet), all the people that came out to the shows and all the promoters who made it happen!! We played with a ton of awesome bands."
TOTAL FUCKING DESTRUCTION's promotional video for the song "Armed Response" can be viewed below. The track comes off the group's Translation Loss debut, entitled "Zen and the Art of Total Fucking Destruction", which was released in May.
TOTAL FUCKING DESTRUCTION was founded by BRUTAL TRUTH's very own drummer/vocalist/performance artist Richard Hoak, and is rounded out by Herzog (total fucking guitar), Joe (total fucking bass) and Pingdum (total fucking fuck you guitar).
According to a press release, TOTAL FUCKING DESTRUCTION has taken grind to a whole new level with an extremely unique album that consists of three parts: Part 1 is a proper grinding, metallic and perversely catchy batch of songs recorded at Super 8 Studios (SLACKS, QUIPS, ZODIAK) and mixed by Dan O'Hare; Part 2 is an acoustic monster all in itself, beautifully recorded by the band in their total fucking house, completely different from anything heard in grind today; Part 3 is enhanced CD content that contains "Live from Hazel's", a legendary live performance recorded in the bowels of Philadelphia.
