Congrats on the new album! Got mine from Sean at Double Crown, a couple days ago, it has been repeatedly played, and it is awesome! Great playing, terrific compositions, and well-arranged & recorded. The sound & vibe remind me of the European surf bands. The horns are a nice touch. Highly recommended! I wish I could get down there for the show tomorrow. Hopefully next time.

Thanks a lot for the feedback Bob, I'm super stoked you like the album ! That's funny we remind you of the European surf bands, we are three French in the band (who moved in the US for work), so there are definitely European influences in our sound Smile

BBB should do a nor cal tour.



Thanks to all that came on Friday night !! Jeff, Dave, Duff, Clint, Josheboy, Mr Tiki-head and others that I might miss. And of course special thanks to the Volcanics for joining us in this !

The album is out, you can get the CD on Double Crown records, or download it on Bandcamp.

Good news, we also have some 12' vinyls under pressing, we should get them in the next weeks. You can pre-order one now and get instant download of the album :

I'm really enjoying this record.

Four String Fender for The Delstroyers

Just received the digipack album in the post from the band by Bandcamp order. It's a winner, all compositions are great, variety among the songs, and the sound production is fantastic. Very happy and many thanks!

Thanks everyone! We're stoked that you are enjoying the album!

So I was at the record release party, and both bands put on a hell of a show! Plus they all seem like nice fellows all around. Blackball Bandits are now on my list of shows to try to make it to Cool

As for the album, I've listened to it a few times now, and it is one of my favorite recent surf releases. My favorite track is Mesquite, but the entire alum is really really good.

Even though I bought the CD I went ahead and pre-ordered the LP on Bandcamp. An album this good should be enjoyed on vinyl!

Looking forward to more shows and releases from this band!
