Destruction Unit wanna take you on a Deep Trip through hell on new Sacred Bones LP

Everybody loves garage rock, right? Whether you’re at a summer festival, stuck watching an iPhone commercial on Hulu, or just at some dumpy bar in the middle of nowhere, a ragin’ lo-fi guitar riff inevitably strummed by a dude in tight black skinny jeans will get heads bobbin’ faster than… well, whatever. The point is that EVERYBODY LIKES GARAGE ROCK. You could say that Tempe, AZ five-piece Destruction Unit play damned good garage rock, but that wouldn’t exactly be it: these guys play damned good garage rock from HELL.

And you can consider the band’s first proper studio LP, Deep Trip, your invitation to the hellmouth. Coming atcha August 20, thanks to the space oddities over at Sacred Bones, Deep Trip is the evil sexy lovechild of the men of Destruction Unit and recording wizard Ben Greenberg (and member of The Men, Pygmy Shrews, Hubble, ex-ZS) and studio owl Kyle Keays at Vacation Island in NY. (Warning: Deep Trip will steal your drugs AND your boy/girlfriend.)
