Demolition Means Progress is a jangly indie rock band based in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Lead vocalist/guitarist BJ Bonin and drummer Mike McCloskey became Demolition Means Progress in late 2011, having toured together since 2000 (as The Underthings). Bassist Grant Martin joined in 2013 and guitarist Michele Harris in the spring of 2015.

Demolition Means Progress is currently recording their sophomore effort “Lovesongs for Saboteurs.” The LP features songs about work, debt, despair, and love with strong melodies and harmony, jangly guitar, bass chords, and some cello over layers of reverb that comes close to shoegaze without crossing that event horizon. Set for release in January of 2016, the record explores life-work balance - side A is life, side B is work - and demonstrates that balance is unlikely both in real life and on the record (it has 11 songs).

Their 2013 EP “Destroy as Directed” features song topics ranging from politics to silly road trips to relationships, each with a different musical theme (punk, americana, rock). “Destroy as Directed” has been described as REM meets the Pixies, or Billy Bragg meets Sugar. Think Teenage Fanclub with a cellist, or Murder By Death with shoegaze pedals, the EP has garnered airplay on independent radio stations around the country.
