This Will Destroy You Announce New Album


Since 2004, This Will Destroy You has been forging some of the world’s most brutal and precariously visceral instrumental rock. In addition to a vigorous tour schedule, their celebrated discography and soundtrack work for feature films and documentaries have earned them a sizable following. Another Language, TWDY’s fourth full length LP, marks their euphonious return from a prolonged vacuous dark period that threatened to break both the band and the members themselves. Rather than be stifled by their experience TWDY were atomized and subsequently made anew, emerging with a revived energy and reinforced sense of solidarity.

 TWDY’s new found clarity of vision would come after a state of near dissolution that ensued the success of their 2006 debut Young Mountain and 2008’s eponymous follow up. Personal struggles, growing pains, the loss of band members, and a series of close, untimely tragedies set the tone for what would be the band’s darkest and most introspective album yet, 2011’s Tunnel Blanket. The following two years stress tested the band to the point of ruin; consecutive continent-hopping tours as well as the pressures of matching their previous two albums’ accomplishments took a nearly unbearable toll. TWDY’s spirits were lifted when both independent filmmakers and Hollywood began to eye their discography for prominent placement in several critically acclaimed films, including the Oscar-winning Moneyball. The arrival of 2013’s Live in Reykjavik triple LP was warmly received by fans and further rejuvenating the band after years of relentless, grinding tours. In October of 2013 TWDY returned to Elmwood Recording, once again working with engineer John Congleton, fully prepared to construct their next work from the inside out.
