Following his fantastic performance at Oval Space last year, we welcome back Destroyer! Vancouver native Dan Bejar has long displayed a chameleonic instinct for change while maintaining a unified and particular aesthetic. No two records sound the same, but they’re always uniquely Destroyer.

October 20th sees the release of Bejar's 12th studio album, entitled ken. Produced by Destroyer drummer and member of Black Mountain, Josh Wells, the album was recorded in its entirety in the jam space/studio space that the group calls The Balloon Factory, and not entirely as a band as normal.

“Sometime last year, I discovered that the original name for ‘The Wild Ones’ (one of the great English-language ballads of the last 100 years or so) was ‘Ken’. I had an epiphany, I was physically struck by this information. In an attempt to hold on to this feeling, I decided to lift the original title of that song and use it for my own purposes. It’s unclear to me what that purpose is, or what the connection is. I was not thinking about Suede when making this record. I was thinking about the last few years of the Thatcher era. Those were the years when music first really came at me like a sickness, I had it bad. Maybe ‘The Wild Ones’ speaks to that feeling, probably why Suede made no sense in America. I think ‘ken’ also means ‘to know.'”
