PREMIERE: Puig Destroyer — "Play The Game (The Right Way)"

Share on Tumblr

Last June, baseball-obsessed Thrice drummer Riley Breckenridge wrote about his new project Puig Destroyer for PureVolume. It may have started off as a joke, but Puig Destroyer is now very much a reality. 

Named after the Los Angeles Dodgers' charismatic rookie phenom Yasiel Puig and "grindcore" group Pig Destroyer, the band (Breckenridge; Mike Minnick, ex-Curl Up and Die; Ian Miller and Jon Howell from Kowloon Walled City) have more than delivered on their promise of "loud fast songs about baseball."

They've already released a self-titled EP and a limited edition 7" single, produced band merch, and caught the attention of Grantland, ESPN, and the Los Angeles Times, among others. Even Yasiel Puig himself checked out the band

It may be the MLB off-season, but the band has still been busy preparing their second EP entitled Wait for Spring. Listen to PureVolume's exclusive premiere of "Play The Game (The Right Way)" from the EP above. 

"We named the record Wait for Spring as a nod to the famous Rogers Hornsby quote about what he does when there's no baseball," bassist Miller revealed to PV. "That's what we're all doing now — staring out our windows, looking at cold ground, waiting for the next season to start. These eight songs are love letters to Yasiel Puig, one of the most exciting players in baseball, and the game we all love. We hope this record helps console you as you wait for pitchers and catchers to report.”   

Wait for Spring will be available on November 19 via the band's website
