This Will Destroy You @ Bottom Lounge in May (more by Grant MacAllister)
Texas post-rockers This Will Destroy You released their latest album Tunnel Blanket back in May, and went on a two-month tour in support of it as well. If you missed them at the Bottom Lounge in the spring, dont fret: they've just announced a show at Lincoln Hall, taking place on February 1st. Tickets go on sale this Friday (12/16), at noon CST.
Tunnel Blanket was just released on 2x cassette, and they are also selling hand-numbered, limited edition vinyl of the album (269 copies). Five of those vinyl copies are from the initial test pressing.
The band also recently scored their friend Rui Cavender's film:
THE DEEP FIELD is an honest and unflinching look at the tenderness, grief, and love that mixes strangely with the black vacuum of impending death. I feel the themes of this film are something that all people think about and must eventually face. Why are we here? Did we live our lives to its full potential? Do we have regrets? What comes after death? While there is an un-negotiable sadness in death, I discovered that there is also a terrible beauty that paradoxically goes along with it. We are fortunate to have existed and to be aware of it. There are many moments of beauty, healing and catharsis in this film, that to me, far outweigh the sad aspects.He needs help financing the remainder of the project, if you'd like to contribute.
