The San Francisco Bay Area trio Destroy Boys have released their latest single “Honey I’m Home” The song is about feeling trapped.
Even if your body is physically free, if something has control over you, that control follows you wherever you go, and you always end up returning to it. “It was written at a time in my life where I felt mentally trapped on all sides,” guitarist Vi Mayugba says
“I was boxed in by everything around me. Even though there were no physical restraints keeping me from escaping my situation, I couldn’t bring myself to leave. I was able to free myself a few months back, and now the song is more of a redemption song than anything. No more bars on the window, freaky cliff metaphors, et cetera. It’s a perfect quarantine anthem, considering we are all trapped at home.”
The band have been redefining West Coast punk with their blistering take on teenage grind. They found a champion in West Coast punk royalty Billie Joe Armstrong who not only talked about the band’s debut album “Sorry, Mom” in Green Day’s last Rolling Stone cover story (HERE) but has shown public support via Instagram HERE,
Led by singer Alexia Roditis’ sarcastic and wistful singing and Vi Mayugba’s shredding guitar, held down by Narsai Malik on drums, they pay homage to and represent an evolution of all things classically punk making music that is a searing reminder of how recklessly expressive punk rock was designed to be.
Their second full-length album Make Room led to touring the U.S. and UK with Mannequin Pussy and SWMRS.
Scheduled to support Against Me! this spring, which due to COVID-19 has been postponed, and hoping to still be a part of the Sad Summer Festival with All Time Low, The Story So Far, The Maine.
The lyric video has been shared, but for those of a short attention span, please play, but the recommendation might be to listen only.
