"...the pulsing, snaking “Colossal” that manages to be ethereal and a banger."

"“Grouch” bridges 80s drama and sound with a contemporary dream pop sensibility courtesy of TR/ST’s Robert Alfons."

"TR/ST’s new song “Unbleached” is industrial-rave perfection"
- The Fader
TR/ST has shared the new single “Colossal” the fourth installment and final single, following "Grouch", "Unbleached" and "Gone", from the upcoming LP The Destroyer - 1. The song was co-written & co-produced by TR/ST's frequent collaborator Maya Postepski.

When talking about the track Robert Alfons says, “Such a special collab with Maya, we wrote it together while in different parts of the world. This song was written during long walks I would take in the middle of the night around the hills in my neighborhood, watching the mist rise as the sun came up.” 

Maya adds, “I was coming home on the train with my music on random when a TR/ST song came on from the first album we made, I started crying, it brought back so many memories. I sent Robert the sketches for ‘Colossal’ that night. He wrote back and we rekindled our relationship, so I find it deeply emotional every time I hear it. Had I not taken the chance and sent it who knows if we would be working together again. Overcoming fear and being brave have become the focus of my work and this song underlines that — if one is willing to look into the lion’s mouth the rewards can be astounding.”  

Releasing in two parts, Destroyer - 1 and Destroyer - 2, the first LP will be out 4/19 with the second 8 track installment coming in November 2019 both on Grouch via House Arrest. Together the The Destroyer LP's are one piece but will be distributed as two stand-alone albums, different sides of the same coin. The Destroyer will be TR/ST's much anticipated third album. It follows the two previous records, 2012's self-titled release and 2014's Joyland. TR/ST will also be embarking on U.S. and EU tours. Dates are below. Pre-order the LP here.
