Destrophy is best known for their dominating live shows, undeniably catchy anthems and huge melodic choruses.



-Destrophy enjoyed a very busy and successful 2008. They worked non-stop playing select regional dates to sold out and near capacity audiences throughout the major Midwest markets.

In January of 2008, Destrophy commissioned myself, Damon Moreno, of The Inner Light Agency to serve as the band's artist development, marketing director and tour/stage manager. Subsequently, Destrophy inked a deal with Andrew Goodfriend of TKO Bookings in NYC and now shares the roster Buckcherry, Hed PE,Papa Roach,Mudvayne,Alien Ant Farm and more. Destrophy was contacted by In De Goot Management in July of 2008 (Sevendust,Saliva,Chevelle) and secured a Midwest tour supporting Drowning Pool.

Additionally, 2008 found Destrophy sharing the stage with Stone Temple Pilots, Staind, Filter, Five Finger Death Punch, Saliva, Hellyeah, Soilwork and many others. The band's single, "The Way of Your World" from their latest CD of the same name, enjoyed heavy rotation on multiple Midwest and internet radio stations alike. The single has been in the top 10 most requested songs consistently on the band's hometown radio station, Des Moines' Lazer 103.3 FM, KAZR.

Despite Destrophys performance schedule, the band worked diligently between shows on new material for the next album. These new tracks are an exciting display of Destrophy's ability to seemlessly fuse highly accessible rock and metal with undeniably catchy melodies.

All the while, determined to make sure Destrophy got the attention i felt they so deserved, i logged countless hours securing dozens of radio and online interviews nationwide, multiple sponsors, and endorsement deals. I secured a national distrubution deal through Hot Topics and Destrophy officially signed with The Jagermeister Music Group. The band now has exclusive endorsement contracts with Spector Basses, Kramer Guitars, Spaun Drums, GHS Strings, Spurzel Tuners and IN Tune Guitar Picks. I also secured multiple clothing endorsements and sponsorships from notable national company's like Scion, Golds Gym, Redbull and more.

There is a palpable industry and underground buzz surrounding the band. Both the live shows and the new music have concert goers and major industry players alike expressing interest and asking for more. From distribution, management and development offers to overseas and American record labels, the positive feedback has been overwhelming. Both the band and myself are looking forward to continual positive growth and are tirelessly committed to the major commercial success of Destrophy.

*BIO*- 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 CD's 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.”
