Til We're Blue or Destroy
Biography Begun as a recording project by band leader Will Rhodes in early 2004, members of other bands called in to make contributions eventually became the band in the summer of 2005. The lineup is always evolving, getting larger and smaller as time passes and band members live their lives and work with other bands. Til We'Re Blue or Destroy has supported national acts in Austin such as The Decemberists, The Thermals, Snowden, Tokyo Police Club, Retribution Gospel Choir, The Ugly Suit, The War On Drugs and The Helio Sequence. The band showcased at SXSW 2008 and 2009, North vs. South 2006, 2007, and 2010, and FunFunFun Fest 2008. Members of TWBOD have performed with The Black Angels, Sleepercar, Ian Moore, Crooked Fingers, A.C. Newman, The Polyphonic Spree, Broken Social Scene, David Dondero, Jim White, and Grant Hart. 2009 and 2010 saw the band leaving Austin for frequent trips to Dallas, Denton, Beaumont, Houston, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, and New Orleans. 2011 finds TWBOD as a lean and powerful rock band that is creating new songs and staying ready for the road. Til We'Re Blue or Destroy is ready for booking and management representation.
