Hole in the Universe

The new Destroyers album is nearly ready. This is a chance for YOU to help us launch it!

Dear fans and concerned individuals. The Fate of The Destroyers new album has been bravely put in the hands of their beloved fans and supporters!

Frankly, we need your help. Without any wealthy philanthropists in sight, no lottery wins, treasure maps to follow or magic beanstalks to climb; we need to fund the final stages of our 2nd album ‘Hole in the Universe.’

So, we’ve decided to come to PledgeMusic to offer pre-orders of the new album & exclusive pre-release digital downloads along with many unique one-off offers. Please peruse our selection of goods on the right, as well as package deals on T-shirts & albums etc. You can also get VIP guest tickets to gigs, signed handwritten copies of lyric sheets, music lessons, even the tall man Louis’ lengthy beard & mustache combo!!

Why do we need your money? Where has the money gone?

With our debut CD – Out of Babel – released in 2009, the time had come to start working on a follow-up. We spent countless days over the last year writing and rehearsing new songs out of a shared desire to follow up Babel with a real monster of an album. Eventually we booked 3 weeklong sessions with Gavin Monaghan at Magic Garden Studios and recorded 13 tracks. Gavin, Gazz & Joe have worked long days with us on this album & done great work, but after so much time in the studio recording & mixing we still have some final mixing to do, mastering, artwork, manufacture & promotion to pay for before we can release the album and give it the big send off we think it deserves.

We have also thought long and hard about supporting a charity as part of our campaign. ‘Awards for Young Musicians’ a great charity that helps talented young musicians in challenging circumstances with the cost of music tuition and instruments will receive a donation if we achieve our targets.

Please spread the word, share this link via your social networks and with your friends because nothing beats word of mouth and we’re sure some people who don’t know us yet would be happy to discover some new original music!

Many thanks to you all. We hope to see you at one of our shows this autumn & keep an eye on our live page for exciting new gigs in the Spring and beyond. Happy winter UK folks and ahoy to the rest of the world.

Peace & Love,

The Destroyers
