THIS WILL DESTROY YOU (USA)
Saturday March 23
Known for their destructive live sound and influential brand of ambient-rock, the tour follows the release of their acclaimed record ‘Tunnel Blanket’ through Australian independent label Hobbledehoy.
The abyss of endless touring and isolation on the road became the catalyst for the band’s third album, “Tunnel Blanket”. While previous albums managed to strike a universal chord of human hope and near-optimism toward the future, “Tunnel Blanket” is the darker and more intricate sides of human emotion, grief, and tragedy.
Whereas “Young Mountain” and “S/T” could be played in bookstores, coffee shops, and surfing videos, the blackened density of “Tunnel Blanket” commands and provides entire immersion between the recording and the listener. This is not background music.
There is still beauty in the latest from THIS WILL DESTROY YOU. In fact, this could easily be described as the most beautiful album the band has ever made. Yet it’s an entirely unconventional beauty that taps far below the soil that most bands dig their safe heels upon. And at the end, it’s just as cathartic, instinctively primal, and wholly rewarding.
Indeed, those rewards have spurred the band on to reach pinnacles previously thought unattainable by an instrumental act – debuting at #25 on the Billboard Heatseeker chart and worldwide sales exceeding 100,000 copies.
If the Mayan prophecies don’t get you first, This Will Destroy You will make sure the job is complete by March 2013.
