Destrophy is the unstoppable 4 piece pop/rock/metal machine based out of Des Moines, Iowa. Officially launched in 2002 by producer and singer/songwriter Ari, who scoured the state and recruited only the most talented and success-minded musicians to bring his vision to the stage. The result is an impressive line-up featuring: Ari, guitar and vocals; Phil T. on bass; Joe Fox on drums; and Bruce Swink, former member of Roadrunner Records, Stone Sour and DownTheSun, on guitar.
Destrophy’s brutal and precise live show, coupled with epic songwriting and pop-oriented vocals continue to build and sustain the buzz surrounding them as one of modern music’s brightest contenders. Destrophy teamed up with Damon Moreno of The Inner Light Agency to work as the band’s manager. “I absolutely believe in Destrophy and I feel this will be bigger than any of us truly realize,” says Moreno. Destrophy has toured and shared the stage with OTEP, Drowning Pool, Korn, Disturbed, 5FDP, Stone Temple Pilots, Saliva, Avenged Sevenfold, Papa Roach, Soilwork, Buckcherry, and many more.
In the summer of 2009, Destrophy secured a multi-album deal with Victory Records. The band will release their worldwide debut album on Victory in the fall of 2009. President of Victory Records, Tony Brummel says: “Having staked their claim as one of the hardest working bands in the Midwest, this incredible 4-piece will be taking over the rest of the country (and the world) when their Victory debut hits stores this fall.”
