Folklore! Narcissism! Destruction!

Digital release of the Insomniac Folklore / Destroy Nate Allen / Self Proclaimed Narcissist triple split EP hits Bandcamp today!!

Read All About It:

Our friends Danielle & Michael wrote a critical / joke of an essay about Destroy Nate Allen, Insomniac Folklore and Self Proclaimed Narcissist. At first the essay stung a bit and then lightening struck!!!!

We had to release a split EP that included this amazing essay as the only liner notes. The album had to include “covers” and “originals” by all three bands. It’s hard to say who wrote which songs… it’s all become one big joke and I love it.

You see Tyler, Eric and I are all from the same small Oregon town of Roseburg. We’ve been friends for years and in more ways than one we’ve probably inspired each other to be more creative. I know I’ve stolen an idea or 2 over the years.

So with that in mind we have unleashed what is probably the most narcissistic album in history. The art is packed full of epic and awkward photos and comes complete with an amazing essay exposing the dark side of Folklore, Narcissism and Destruction.

I’m also pretty stoked because I was able to design the artwork which if I do say so myself is worth the free cost of the download.

To collect all 9 songs and read the essay you must visit:


So there you have it, the first scavenger hunt in the history of Destroy Nate Allen!

June / July US Tour Canceled!

Long story short we have to cancel our summer touring plans.

About two weeks ago, it was discovered my wife/bandmate Tessa had a ruptured appendix. They ended up doing emergency surgery on her abdomen and in addition to removing the remains of her appendix; they also removed parts of her colon, and small intestine. She’s expected to make a full recovery but ended up spending 11 days in the hospital.

Our best guess is that she ruptured her appendix 6 days before she was admitted – in those 6 days she played 2 shows with a rupture appendix!

We’ve decided to hold off all out of town shows until August so she can properly recover. We had a full US tour booked with Tyler aka Insomniac Folklore (www.myspace.com/insomniacfolklore). We were also set to play a week of shows with our friends Andrew Jackson Jihad (www.myspace.com/andrewjacksonjihad). Both bands are still going on tour so please support them when they come to your towns!

Until Tessa’s fully recovered all I’ll be playing all Destroy Nate Allen show’s solo. This has been a major wake up call for us. We’ll be staying pretty low key for a while and making some big changes.

We had planned to release a new triple EP and a7” this month and I’m not sure when these will be coming out now. But in the mean time http://www.facebook.com/destroynateallen has a new recording of Turns Out You’re Perfect For Me, that we recorded last year in Richmond, Virginia.

Thanks for understanding.

Nate Allen
