German thrash legends Destruction have given fans a surprise in the form of a new single and music video. This comes just a week before the band will release “Live Attack” their new cd / blu ray. Check out the single below and let us know what you think of this bands 40+ year career.
DESTRUCTION’s SCHMIER about the new single “State Of Apathy”:
“The last two years have been testing times for all of us. We are all sad to announce that Mike has left DESTRUCTION. It all was a shock and hit us hard but nevertheless there was never any doubt that we will continue as a band. We are a strong unit and are proud to welcome our new guitarist, Martin Furia, to the band! Our chemistry is great since Martin has been a part of the DESTRUCTION family for many years now. He is the perfect new man on the axe – the first shows have been a fucking blast!
‘State Of Apathy’ shows the direction DESTRUCTION will go with the new record: more ‘back-to-the-roots’, more guitars, more in your face! This band is my life and we will always give 100% to keep the spirit alive. I hope you love the new single as much as we do – thanks for all the support! We are wishing Mike the best for his future, for us there is only one way to go THRASH TILL DEATH!”
Ex-Guitarist Mike about parting ways with DESTRUCTION:
“It´s hard to leave a band after 39 years. Destruction is my life and something like my baby. But sometimes you have to take decisions that hurt. I´m very sad at the moment, but if something doesn’t feel right anymore, better stop doing it. Thanx to all former bandmates. I´m very proud about the music we have created together. Cheers to all thrashers out there. Without your support and your passion, Destruction would not exist. Peace.”
