Formerly intended to be a one-off joke project, the 2013 borne baseball-themed grindcore project Puig Destroyer (members of Thrice, Curl Up And Die and Kowloon City) have furthered their foray into the serious with the release of their debut self-titled LP, out today on No Sleep Records and currently streaming over at No Sleep’s official Soundcloud page and below. The appropriately 20 song, 24 minutes long effort is the band’s most refined effort to date, touching over subjects such as Halos’ MVP outfielder Mike Trout, former Angel outfielder Mark Trumbo and distaste for fantasy football shenanigans and was written in the hope that an additional twenty tracks of baseball-themed mayhem still makes “any sense to anyone”.
