Michigan's Destroy This Place are comprised of ex-members of Thunderbirds Are Now!, New Grenada, and Friendly Foes. The quartet welcomed their new self-titled album earlier this month via Bellyache Records, and it's a really nice mix of power pop and harder-edged fuzz rock. Co-frontmen Ryan Allen and John Nelson split those duties respectively, yielding a well-balanced core sound. You can, and really should, take a listen to the LP at the bottom of this post.

DTP just came through Chicago for a show at Quenchers, but they'll be returning for a performance on August 10 with Tight Phantomz and Lifted Bells at a TBD venue. Stay tuned for more info on the Chicago show.
