about

Since 2007, married couple Nate and Tessa Allen joined forces as "Destroy Nate Allen" an interactive, sing-a-long, folk punk band. In these five years, they have set foot in forty-eight states, released six full length albums, and played over 700 shows. Their process has allowed them to do (almost) everything in their power to show people a good time with simply two voices and a guitar.

Destroy Nate Allen decided to try something different for their seventh full length, With Our Powers Combined. They asked Gnarboots (Asian Man Records: former members of Link 80 + Shinobu) to add a full band dose of crazy - and it worked!

With Our Powers Combined features DNA’s fun captured in a whole new and stunning form. The album was fan funded via kickstarter album pre-orders, and was then recorded to 2” tape by Jack Shirley (Comadre) at The Atomic Garden (Classics of Love, Joyce Manor, Broadway Calls).

“We have a blast traveling together and playing rock n’ roll, but we’ve had trouble capturing our live energy so we asked our friends for help,” stated Nate. “We flew to the Bay Area and tracked fifteen songs in three days. We were able bring in a horn section (SKA!!!!) to pull off wild concepts that went beyond the scope of our traditional stripped down approach. We are proud of the album and we can’t wait to show everyone!”

With no insurance now what could I do
I waited 6 days to go into you
Appendix was ruptured and I stayed 12 days 
I am so thankful in so many ways

Infection was rampant and drain tubes put in 
blue plastic barf bag my new closest friend

Nurses were worried and I was surprised 
I was far sicker than I realized

Hospital, hospital you saved my life

When you cut me open with a surgical knife

Chemicals, drugs and 5 IV’s
You fed me fake foods and called them healthy

Pain tolerance grew weaker and left 
When Doc pulled the tape off I screamed and I wept (OOWWWWW)

Thank God for Catholic charities 
you paid the bill and all of the fees
Needles and staples and drains and pain. 
I never want to go through that again

Now you’re making dinner while I’m writing this song

Wish it would come faster but it’s not taking too long

Yes I consider myself lucky to have a best friend such as you

Cause you’re right there helping me with what I’m going through
