Announce Brothers of Destruction EP
Hear First Track ‘Night Song’
November UK Tour
The Lemon Twigs have announced Brothers of Destruction, a six-track EP of previously unreleased material.
Slated for September 22nd, Brothers of Destruction was written and recorded by the D’Addario brothers – Brian (20) and Michael (18) – on their 8-track at home in New York during Spring 2015, not long after recording their debut album, Do Hollywood. The half dozen songs, most of which already feature in The Lemon Twigs’ searing live shows, will be made available digitally and as a 12” vinyl.
“In the beginning of 2015 we had songs left over from the Do Hollywood sessions, so we decided to record them at home in New York on our 8-track. Many of you will recognize some of the songs from our live shows. They’ve changed a lot over the past year, but these are the original versions. We consider the EP the last chapter of the Do Hollywood era of our group. So enjoy!”
Yesterday, the siblings shared ‘Night Song’ with fans during a Reddit AMA, and the track can now be heard below.

The Lemon Twigs are brothers Brian and Michael D’Addario from Hicksville, Long Island. Their debut album, Do Hollywood, released in October, was recorded in Los Angeles with Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado and includes the singles ‘These Words’, ‘As Long As We’re Together’ and ‘I Wanna Prove To You’. Brian (20) and Michael (18) have been playing rock music since they were old enough to walk and talk, mastering every instrument they could get their hands on and playing everything together (they alternate writing credits, lead vocals and instruments on Do Hollywood). Mining inspiration from every era of rock, they have crafted richly sophisticated baroque-pop songs into a ten-track tour de force – the perfect introduction to the world of The Lemon Twigs.
