Do you guys remember when we talked about Ryan Allen & His Extra Arms earlier this year? We praised that record for being one the most heartfelt rock and roll albums of the year, and as if that wasn’t enough for Ryan Allen, he’s back to make yet another stake at the claim with a band called Destroy This Place.
Destroy This Place creates a fine-tuned chaos that channels influence from The Get Up Kids and ‘Through Being Cool’ era Saves The Day. Their new album, ‘Animal Rites,’ is due out on October 23rd through Forge Again Records and is available to pre-order here. We’re so excited that we get to share the music video for a new song called “The Bees.”
This is the track that sets the record in motion. It’s our first taste of what’s to come from the record, and the music video is no different. The use of images of Old Hollywood as masks perfectly captures and reflects the chaos presented to us in the music. You can watch the music video for “The Bees” after the cut.
