DESTRAGE announces European tour in support of PERIPHERY and THE CONTORTIONIST next spring!
You can try to put DESTRAGE in a box but you will never succeed. Words such as “progressive”, “cinematic”, “mathcore”, “technical” and “groove-laden”, could be thrown at them, but really the only one you need is DESTRAGE, for they are in a category of their own making. This has never been more true than on ‘A Means To No End‘, the fourth full-length from the Milan, Italy-based 5-piece, out since last October via Metal Blade Records. Riveting from start to finish, it leads the listener through an emotionally-charged labyrinth of complex yet catchy melody and muscle, following nobody’s rules, and it stands out as one of the truly unique releases of 2016.
To support this outstanding album DESTRAGE have been invited by PERIPHERY to support them on their upcoming ‘European Unrest Tour’ next spring. Special guests on this tour-de-force ride through Europe will be THE CONTORTIONIST!
Comments DESTRAGE: “We literally can’t wait to tour Europe with our mates Periphery and our bros The Contortionist next spring! This line up it’s simply awesome and these shows are gonna be RAD! Be sure to grab your ticket and see ya all very soon!”

DESTRAGE recorded ‘A Means To No End‘ at RecLab Studios in Milan, reuniting with their longtime collaborator Larsen Premoli, and his assistant Alex D’Errico. While tracking, at the suggestion of drummer Federico Paulovich, they brought percussionist Alessandro “Pacho” Rossi into the fold. Having entered into the writing process with no plans beyond simply wanting to write good music, the finished product – which is mixed by Steve Evetts and mastered by Alan Douches – is somewhat revelatory, and will certainly grab the attention of anyone exposed to it. Known for their powerful live shows, these tracks are sure to sound incredible when blasted from titanic speakers as the band take them to the masses.
