Destrophy is a well-established 4 piece pop/rock/metal machine based out of central Iowa. The band was officially launched in 2002 by producer and singer/songwriter Ari. The story goes that Ari scoured the state and recruited only the most talented, success-minded, musicians to help him bring his brain child to fruition. The result is an impressive line-up including Ari, guitar and vocals, Phil T. bass, Joe Fox on drums, and Bruce Swink, former member of Roadrunner Records, Stone Sour and DownTheSun, on guitar.
The band is currently playing select shows throughout the Midwest in support of their new CD, ?The Way of Your World.? The CD sold out of its first pressing in just 8 weeks with ecstatic praise from fans and industry insiders alike. In addition to the new CDs world class audio production and impeccable musicianship, it?s undoubtedly the memorable song writing and pop/rock vocal sensibilities that continue to build and sustain the buzz surrounding Destrophy.
Destrophy has secured a solid foothold as one of the brightest contenders in the modern independent music industry. The bands catchy signature sound and dominating live shows continue to draw large crowds and enthusiastic responses from their continually growing fan base, both here in the US and overseas. Additionally, Destrophy has a long standing reputation of notable accomplishments including heavy rotation on multiple Midwest radio stations, dominating The Battle of the Rock Bands on IA?s 93.X Rock FM and compiling a tight knit fan base built up by networking and aggressive grass-roots marketing. All this and making themselves accessible to fans is what the band takes so much pride and sense of accomplishment in each time they take the stage.
As demand for the band?s recordings and live shows grew, Destrophy teamed up with Damon Moreno of The Inner Light Agency to work as the band?s marketing and development director. ?The core principles of my band management style is to keep all the wheels turning in the right direction? says Damon. ?I honestly believe in Destrophy, I feel this is bigger than any of us truly realize.?

The members of the band and their representation are long-time friends and have stood by the decision to avoid the industry?s traditionally corrosive elements and temptations such as senseless internal conflict and substance abuse. The true focus is on creating high energy, inspiring music with huge commercial potential!
