With one eyeliner-stained eye looking back over a black-clad shoulder, Adoration Destroyed has arrived with a sound that simultaneously harkens back to the dark electronic music of the past, seductively merged with bleeding-edge production culled from modern EDM. This Austin, TX-based band features leader Erik Gustafson (also a member of 16 Volt and Noir) on synths and vocals and a scorching live band that consists of Eirik Ashe on drums and Jon Gilyeat on bass. Adoration Destroyed has performed with acts such as God Module and Skold while also appearing on the highly touted compilation Electronic Saviors. On the heels of their successful single “Carnal Dirge,” that Intravenous Magazine called “a smoldering blend of steady dance beats, grooving bass and rhythmic dance leads that will play well to dancefloors around the world,” Cleopatra Records will be releasing Adoration Destroyed’s debut album Ritual Damage on September 9th. The album features superb production on the 9 original tracks plus fantastic cover versions of Til Tuesday’s “Voices Carry” and Marilyn Manson’s “Coma White,” along with a pair of exclusive remixes from 16 Volt and Mr.Kitty!
Look for Adoration Destroyed on a full U.S. tour in support of Ego Likeness that will start around Halloween, a rather fitting time of year for the somber sonnets, eyeliner and electro-dirge of Adoration Destroyed!
