Virginia Beach’s Provoke, Destroy, band has previously been featured in the AP&R section of Alternative Press #292 (October 2012), is pleased to announced that they have signed with Indianola Records. Indianola Records, who has had recent success finding acts from Virginia Beach with Honour Crest, we release the band’s forthcoming full length, entitled Vulture, this spring. Guitarist Ryan Johnson spoke on the signing, “Signing to Indianola Records has been the best move for us so far. With their support we can share our music with more people and show the industry that we have what it takes.”
Vulture will feature nine Andrew Baylis (Honour Crest, Apparitions, Camisado) produced tracks that drummer Tyler Melton described as, “A breath of fresh air. We have finally found the real Provoke sound and I am excited to show everybody exactly what that is. All I can say is be ready for the best Provoke, Destroy you have heard yet.” Bassist Michael Mann went on to add, “I think this album is going to surprise a lot of people. With our last EP we were just recording songs that had been written for our live set, rather than being written for recording. This album is a lot more melodic and guitar oriented than our previous releases and I think this album will show that we can be more than just a typical “breakdown” band.”
Provoke, Destroy was formed in early 2011 and played their first show in June of that year in Virginia Beach, VA. The band recorded their debut 5 song EP Rosewell, with Andrew Baylis and released it on June 12, 2012. The band spent the next year touring and playing shows to promote Rosewell. In late 2013/early 2014 they went into the studio to record their debut full length album. The album is set to drop on Indianola Records sometime in spring 2014.
