The band formed in 2005 and has released two full length albums, Urban Being in 2009, and The King is Fat’N’Old in 2010. Their animated live shows have taken them on tour all over Europe, and even over to Japan.

DESTRAGE’s new album, Are You Kidding Me? No. is complete and being prepared for release in early 2014. A trailer for the album can be seen now on the band’s popular youtube channel, youtube.com/destrage. While there, watch DESTRAGE’s previous videos, including their video for Jade’s Place, which won the videoclip category at the Torino Best Soundtrack Awards in 2010. Plans are currently in motion for videos in support of the new album, as well as more extensive touring in 2014.
DESTRAGE comments on joining the Metal Blade roster: “It’s quite difficult for us to describe in few words our feelings about this moment. We just signed with one of the most important and historical metal label in the world, being welcomed as members of a big family, this is simply amazing! We’ve listened to Metal Blade artists since we were just fresh-faced kids and now we’re stoked to be part of such a great roster. We are really excited for the upcoming release and we can’t wait to bring this work on stage and tour around as much as we can. See ya all very soon!”
