Otis the Destroyer Resides With Record In Hand

Otis the Destroyer Resides With Record In Hand

Armed with little more than a couple of tracks recorded in their practice space and a few months of existence, Otis the Destroyer is quickly earning the attention of fans and media alike. Not to mention landing a month long residency at the Empire Control Room for the month of April taking place every Sunday. Being a fan of the Couch, it was an easy sell to investigate the latest project from Couch members Taylor Wilkins and Jud Johnson. Not long after the demise of The Couch, Wilkins  (guitar, vocals) Johnson (drums) quickly set out to work on this project with songs driven by a passion and love for loud rock-n-roll. Adding Nick Joswick and Anthony Rucci to the mix, Otis the Destroyer have an EP in the bag set for release May 22nd coinciding with an appearance at The Mohawk. A nickname given to a father, passed on to a dog, and now residing as a band name, let’s hope that the only thing that Otis the Destroyer destroys, is the myth that rock-n-roll is dead.

Catch Otis the Destroyer at Empire Control Room April 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th for a mixed bag loaded with local talent curated by the band. -Written by Michael Maly
