FACE TO FACE
Face to Face was formed in 1991 by front man Trever Keith, bassist Matt Riddle and drummer Rob Kurth. Previously the trio played in a band known as Zero Tolerance (17) along with guitarist Mark Haake. Prior to Zero Tolerance, Trever and Matt played in a band named Victoria Manor, which disbanded in the late 80’s.
Face to Face's first album, Don’t Turn Away, was released in 1992 by Dr. Strange Records, a small independent label located in Alta Loma, California. After nine studio albums and a dedicated following, arguably the band is most well known for their single, "Disconnected," which was released on the band’s first two albums receiving significant airplay on college radio.
During the bands 25-year career, Keith had been the only constant member with many former band members finding success in other bands. Former drummer, Pete Parada is the current drummer for The Offspring and former bassist Matt Riddle had success in No Use For A Name and currently plays with Implants and Gods Of Mount Olympus.
The band currently consists of Trever on vocals and guitar with guitarist Dennis Hill filling out the rhythm section. Scott Shiflett is the band's bassist and has been a member of the band since Riddle’s departure in late 1995. Finally, veteran drummer Danny Thompson (4) has been behind the kit since the band reformed in 2008.
Formed in 2015 and carrying on the riot girl legacy, Destroy Boys are redefining Left Coast punk. Equal parts hardcore and fun, Destroy Boys is what would happen if Blondie stumbled into a Misfits recording session. Lead singer Alexia Roditis’ haunting melodies and Vi Mayugba’s shredding guitar are both an homage and an evolution of all things classically punk. The duo’s latest album, Sorry, Mom, is a manic reminder of how recklessly expressive punk rock was designed to be and earned them a mention in Rolling Stone magazine by legendary Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong in 2016 before either had graduated high school.
With a couple of tours up and down the West Coast under their collective belt, Destroy Boys is hard at work on their upcoming project, while heading off together to attend college at Oakland’s esteemed Mills College. Destroy Boys also received two 2017 SAMMIE awards in the Best Punk/Post Punk Band and Teen band categories, as well as a nomination for the Best New Artist category.
