This spring, DESTRUCTION are delivering a treat for fans stuck at home and unable to attend live shows: “Born To Thrash – Live In Germany” is the band’s first live album with the current line-up and will be released digitally on May, 8th!
Today, the band is teasing that release in the form of a trailer. Find out more, here:
To include all of their loyal fans in this special release, the band initiated an interactive campaign featuring a map where DESTRUCTION fans could sign in and mark the location of the first time they saw the band live. The resulting world map will be part of the album and everyone who participated will be mentioned by name on a poster that comes with the strictly limited album’s physical version. The album will be available on Digipak, Black Vinyl, Red Transparent Vinyl and Picture Vinyl on July, 17th. The pre-order is due to launch May, 8th – so stay tuned and keep an eye on both the band and the label social media platforms for more news.
Singer and bassist Schmier comments on the release:
“This live album is the most spontaneous thing we ever did I think! This is the music business, everything usually takes time and the label does not like surprises. But a good friend of ours spontaneously recorded that Party.San show and we had a film team there that weekend cause we were shooting a movie.
It was a fantastic show and since the Covid-19 has halted all live concerts, we decided to release this for the fans. This also introduces the current fantastic new line up that not all of our fans have seen live yet cause of the actual situation! We will release three official videos in total during the promo of ‘Born To Thrash – Live In Germany’! The film crew wasn’t there to record all of the set but our movie will show the scenery behind the stage and the way we try to achieve our goals! So luckily they caught at least some of the stage magic that night! It feels so awesome that we can share this!”
