Puig Destroyer…it's a thing now, apparently. A new all-star grindcore group has been formed featuring members of Thrice, Curlupanddie and Kowloon Walled City, inspired by baseball player Yasiel Puig of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Riley Breckenridge, drummer for Thrice posted the following update:
"Puig Destroyer is actually happening. It's a baseball-themed grindcore project featuring Mike Minnick (Curl Up & Die) on vocals, Ian Miller and Jon Howell (Kowloon Walled City) and me (Riley Breckenridge – Thrice) doing drum programming (because logistics and gah … blastbeats at 220 bpm).
"We've got basic tracking done for our debut EP, and we should have a track from said EP fairly soon. Please stay tuned for updates/tunes. The roughs I've heard are ridiculously awesome and fun and raw as all hell.
"Kinda like Yasiel Puig.
"We're all very excited and hope that you are too."
I really hope this is real!
