Destroy Babylon have spent over a decade refining their unique, immersive sound into a militant mix of progressive reggae rhythms, striking harmonies, and populist politics. The five original members grew up together in Hudson, NH, formed Destroy Babylon in 2001, and settled into Boston in 2005. Here they formed their own label, Music A.D.D., and released 4 full length albums, 4 EPs and a 7" single.
With an established fan base in the Northeast, and past tours extending across the U.S., DB has shared the stage with legends such as Steel Pulse, Lee “Scratch” Perry, The Wailers, HR of Bad Brains, Eek-A-Mouse, The Itals, The English Beat, Ziggy Marley and The Toasters, in addition to shows with contemporaries like The Slackers, The Aggrolites, 10 Ft Ganja Plant, Dub Trio, Westbound Train and the Easy Star All-Stars.
In 2015, DB started releasing music as the Flying Vipers, a pet project focused strictly on vintage dub.
The band is now ready to follow up their critically acclaimed record, Long Live The Vortex, with a new full length album spring 2017.
