Fifteen piece 'anarchic gypsy-punk orchestra', The Destroyers, have stormed the festival circuit from Glastonbury to Bestival. Close-up and dangerous, their dazzling playing, blazing passion for performance and combined musical influences create a swirling spectacle of sensation and sound. Only the dead can refuse to dance. Whether on a festival stage or more intimate club setting, The Destroyers expend enough energy to light up a small town, leaving audiences ecstatic, exhausted and utterly destroyed.

Fronted by a poet Paul Murphy who has been writing great lyrics since the Summer of Love in 1967 with a command of the English language that will leave you exhausted and smiling for sure.

Formed several years ago in Birmingham UK. A dazzling collective of talented, innovative, multi-instrumentalists and composers with a passion for collaboration. Eclectic in their influences and drawing freely from a range of traditions which highlight their collective love for music and performance.

In short a riot of a sound and damn well amazing on stage, guranteed to whip any audience into a frenzy of sound and try not to dance, we defy you
