Destroy Boys Share New Video For “Shadow (I’m Breaking Down)”

Catch the band on tour in the UK and Europe this month

Destroy Boys have released a video for their latest single ‘Shadow (I’m Breaking Down)’ recapping their life on tour. “Our friend Dez came along with us for a few shows and beautifully captured the experience. The song is all about mental health and seeing your shadow,” vocalist and guitarist Alexia Roditis says of the video. “Playing shows and writing music help me transmute negative experiences into positive ones. Duality is showcased by presenting our on-stage personas side by side with our off stage antics.”

‘Shadow (I’m Breaking Down)’, out now via Hopeless Records, finds Destroy Boys once again working with Carlos de la Garza (Bad Religion, Paramore, The Linda Lindas) and exemplifies the trio’s penchant for mixing their raw, high-energy sound with honest and unapologetic lyrics. The track is infiltrating alternative radio waves in the US, being added at KROX, KKDO, WEQX, XTRA and Sirius XM Faction with additional spins on WXDX, KTBZ, KPNT, KXRK, KFRR, KLAQ, KUPD, WBTZ, WEXX, WGBJ, WGHL and WRRV.

It’s so clear in the footage from the new video that is outfit have this immersive and kinnetic energy.

Earlier this year, the band kicked off their 2023 touring schedule with Coachella and recently completed a two-week run supporting Blink 182 and Turnstile, as well as headlining dates at New York City’s Irving Plaza and The Metro in Chicago for their own mini festival, DestroyFest. Destroy Boys are currently playing a series of dates across Europe and will be headlining a clutch of headline shows in the UK next week. They’ll be rounding out the year supporting Pierce The Veil in North America with LS Dunes and Dayseeker. Details below and tickets on-sale here

Punk Rock might have been the force that brought Destroy Boys together but it’s far from the only touchstone for their music. From their first record through to the present day, they have continued to write and sing about what they know. School drama and elitist cliques encountered in their teens have given way to the pain of relationships and the inherent feelings of misunderstanding and isolation that are all too common for young people navigating a hybrid of real and digital worlds.
