We're not sure if this is really happening, but we're hopeful. Either way, Riley Breckenridge
, drummer for Thrice, has revealed that he's started a side-project with Mike Minnick
(Curl Up And Die) and Jon Howell
(Kowloon Walled City) called Puig Destroyer. For those confused, Breckenridge is an avid baseball fan, and Yasiel Puig is a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Here's the official word:
"Puig Destroyer is actually happening. It's a baseball-themed grindcore project featuring Mike Minnick (Curl Up & Die) on vocals, Ian Miller and Jon Howell (Kowloon Walled City) and me (Riley Breckenridge - Thrice) doing drum programming (because logistics and gah … blastbeats at 220 bpm).UPDATE:
"We've got basic tracking done for our debut EP, and we should have a track from said EP fairly soon. Please stay tuned for updates/tunes. The roughs I've heard are ridiculously awesome and fun and raw as all hell.
"Kinda like Yasiel Puig.
"We're all very excited and hope that you are too."
Puig Destroyer has now released their first song:
