DESTROYER Australian debut with Fraser A Gorman

Canadian musician and former New Pornographers member Dan Bejar is bringing his sleek indie project Destroyer to Australian shores for the first time ever this September, performing at a string of headline solo shows, including one at Mojos Bar on Friday, September 21.

Fraser A. Gorman has just been announced as support for all shows, making it one heck of a double bill.

Destroyer’s latest album ken was released in 2017 and is his 12th studio album. Of the album’s title, Bejar said, “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” (and) I had an epiphany, I was physically struck by this information. In an attempt to hold onto this feeling, I decided to lift the original title of that song and use it for my own purposes.”

Destroyer play Mojos Bar with Fraser A. Gorman on Friday, September 21. Tickets on sale now.
