Last weekend DESTRAGE played a secret show billing themselves as "Third Age" (Terza Età, which in Italian means 'elderly'). Fans were definitely surprised with this and had a great time hearing the band's new material. A photo gallery from the show can be seen on DESTRAGE's Facebook Page HERE.
Singer Paolo Colavope spoke about the show, ""We had to test our new gear and songs in a live situation. What a better occasion to hit the stage as Third Age! An amazing HC band which used to kick some serious asses back in the 60's! It was tons of fun!"
DESTRAGE recorded "Are You Kidding Me? No." at RecLab Studios with Larsen Premoli and at Adrenaline Studio with Daniele Nelli. Mixing and mastering was done by Will Putney at The Machine Shop in New Jersey. The cover illustration was done by Marco Tafuri and the layout was completed by The Jack Stupid.

Their animated live shows have taken them on tour all over Europe, as well as Japan. DESTRAGE opened for Every Time I Die and Parkway Drive in Milan in June of 2013, and headlined a variety of Italian festivals including: Machete Fest, Rock In Riot, MAV Festival, and more.
