Punk rock might have been the force that brought Destroy Boys together, but it’s far from the only touchstone for their music. From their first record through the beginnings of their fourth, they have continued to write and sing about what they know. School drama and elitist cliques encountered in their teens have given way to the pain of relationships and the inherent feelings of misunderstanding and isolation that is all too common for young people navigating a hybrid of physical and digital worlds.

As their fanbase grows so does the scope of their music, embracing everything from hardcore to powerpop to latin ballads. But like all the best bands it comes alive at their shows which are a celebration of inclusion and individuality as much as they are a reason to let it all go and get lost in the energy pouring from the stage.
Fan reviews:

So much fun! This was the best concert I have ever experienced, hands down! I did not expect the energy, everyone shoving and pushing each other, running around. It was all very fun! When someone fell, someone (or several people) picked them right back up and on their feet. Thank you for such a lively experience!

Epic! Very slay behavior. Extremely fun and cool. Awesome music.

Fantastic. I’ve seen Destroy Boys live twice and both times they were amazing! I have absolutely no complaints, and wish they made their way up here more often!

Punk at its finest. Destroy Boys are full energy and so entertaining to see live. They made the pit a safe place for all those there, and was one of the most fun pits I've been in. They had local grassroots organizations speak to the audience about actions that they can take soon. If you get a chance to see Destroy Boys do it, they're so real and so fun to see live.
