Destroyer Brings You 'Rubies'

Published: 2006-01-23
Destroyer is heading out on the road with its new album, Destroyer's Rubies.

Essentially, Destroyer is Vancouverite Daniel Bejar. Though he insists that Destroyer is a band, the other members have been in and out while Bejar remains a constant.

But maybe the reason he won't settle down with one set of personnel for Destroyer is because he can't settle down with one band, period. Aside from Destroyer, Bejar is also a member of the New Pornographers, who are incidentally also heading out on tour soon with Scottish rockers Belle & Sebastian. Though his role in the New Pornographers isn't always clear, he is considered a member.

According to Pitchfork, he is also a member of the band Bonaparte, which will soon be releasing a record, as well as half of the duo Hello Blue Roses, which will debut on Valentine's Day.

Destroyer's Rubies is due out on February 21st, and Bejar will be touring with the "band" throughout March and into the beginning of April.

Here are the Canadian cities he plans to hit:

March 25, Toronto, ON - Lee's Palace
March 26, Montreal, QC - El Salon
April 12, Vancouver, BC - Richard's on Richards
