Destroyer at the WECC

The West End Cultural Centre presents: 
w/ guests War on Drugs 
Wednesday, April 13   

Dan Bejar started Destroyer in the early to mid-nineties. In 1996, he released We'll Build Them a Golden Bridge. Soon Bejar was compelled to head into a proper studio to record City of Daughters in 1998.   

It was with Daughters that Bejar began to develop his own unique lyrical voice that continued to refine itself over the course of his next two records, Thief and Streethawk: A Seduction, which became one of the most acclaimed recordings of 2001. 
Destroyer's Rubies firmly established Destroyer as a critical and commercial success. On its March 2006 cover, The Fader proclaimed him "Rock's Exiled King."   

Trouble in Dreams continued Dan Bejar's lyrical and musical assault on all that is stagnant in modern, popular music.    

With Kaputt Dan Bejar unveils the latest chapter in the ever-evolving musical adventure that is Destroyer. The song "Bay of Pigs" inspired Pitchfork to declare Bejar "a songwriter of the highest order."
