Texas
quartet This Will Destroy you drops their new album next month, so to get you
prepped we’ve got a must-hear teaser track for streaming or download:  “Black Dunes” from Tunnel Blanket. Keep your eyes peeled, as we’ll have more coverage
of the band around the time of the album release.

The details:

 

Tunnel Blanket – produced
by John Congleton, who has also produced Explosions in the Sky, Modest Mouse
and Chairlift – is the group’s second long-player. It follows a well-received
eponymous debut of 2008, a record that earned the band many an attractive
comparison to post-rockers who, for the sake of the past being just that, will
remain nameless here. But to This Will Destroy You – founding guitarists Chris
King and Jeremy Galindo, bassist Donovan Jones and drummer Alex Bhore – the
parallels were not so welcomed. Their sound world was theirs alone to inhabit,
any coincidences just that. So, for album two, a new direction was inevitable,
ties binding them to any scene tossed and forgotten.

 

 

Tunnel Blanket delivers the epic-in-scope soundscapes that followers of its makers’ previous
recordings are accustomed to, but presents them in new lights – where once the
sun shone down bright upon immediate tropes and traits, now their work is
better suited to distant starlight, casting changeable shadows across vistas of
inspired, ambitious amplification. This is not an album to pick through in
search of bold hooks and instant melodies. It is an ever-shifting, always
moving work, which seems to evolve before the listener – spidery guitar lines
feeling their way forth like vines scrambling up trunks in time-lapse
photography.

 

The new record is available for preorder at Suicide Squeeze with a number of options guaranteed to keep you rocking in both the digital and
the analog world (CD / T-shirt bundle, 2xLP / T-shirt bundle, 2xLP, CD,
2xCassette w/ download coupon, T-Shirt w/ download coupon). And in mid-May the
band will embark upon a lengthy North American tour, preceded by a high profile
appearance at the Austin Psych Fest.
