Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows


(D.R.U.G.S., From First To Last, Matchbook Romance, Story Of The Year)

Sire 526837

Released on February 22, 2011


Recorded with John Feldmann, (The Used, Panic at the Disco) who acted as much as a friend and mentor as he did producer, Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows' debut is the most aggressive album Owens has made in his musical career, yet it still retains the keen sense of melody that has helped him become one of today's most celebrated frontmen. "It was so cathartic making this record because music is my form of therapy," he explains, "I can't wait to get out there and play these songs live because it'll get all those feelings out," he says. From the electro-tinged anthem "If You Think This Song Is About You, It Probably Is" - which alternates between tuneful choruses and double-bass fueled breakdowns - to metallically charged arena-ready rockers like "The Only Thing You Talk About," Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows is teeming with sonic surprises that will undoubtedly satisfy Owens' legions of dedicated fans. "These songs are so heavy that it's disgusting. Vocally it's melodic because as I grow older, I know I don't want to be a 30 year old screaming... that's just not who I am," Owens explains, adding that despite its electronic flourishes, Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows is more of a rock band than any project he's ever previously played in. He's also quick to clarify that despite the success of his various side-projects, such as Cinematic Sunrise and Isles & Glaciers, Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows is a full-time project for everyone involved. "This is the only band I'm in and I've quit everything else that I've worked on previously." He continues, "Everyone's wrapping up their past with their old bands, and we're going to move forward with this and not look back." Lyrically, Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows sees Owens at his most vulnerable. Instead of concentrating on wordplay as he's done in the past, this time around, he tried to be as open and direct as possible. "I stripped away all the metaphors and fanciness here so there was more substance," he states. "With this album and this band, I am being absolutely 100 percent honest; I'm not trying to outsmart or outwit anyone. It's just a chronicle of what I've been through." Owens stresses that the band's title is also part of that same underlying theme. "People stereotype the name and react a certain way when they first hear it, but the actual name for me is more about the acronym; it's about how your entire life can change in one day and you can destroy everything but you can also rebuild it."
