So Hideous (photo by Bobby Bates)
As discussed, This Will Destroy You are touring and hitting NYC for a BrooklynVegan-presented two-night stand at Saint Vitus (Feb. 26 & 27). We already announced that Planning for Burial and Sannhet are opening night 2, and we're now excited to announce that local post-metallers So Hideous and experimental composer Christopher Tignor are opening night 1. Tickets for both are still available (UPDATE: Night 2 is now sold out).
So Hideous last released Last Poem/First Light in 2014. Christopher Tignor (also of Slow Six and Wires Under Tension, and who worked with Philip Glass and did sound at CBGB and Brownies in the '90s), has collaborated with This Will Destroy You before, and he released his sophomore solo LP, Thunder Lay Down In The Heart, last year as well. Stream that and the So Hideous album below.

This Will Destroy You @ Merkin Concert Hall
This Will Destroy You are really mixing it up on this tour. Last night they played the fancy Merkin Concert Hall on 67th Street as part of the ongoing Ecstatic Music Festival, and on Saturday (2/11) they'll play a just-announced show at DIY space 285 Kent in Brooklyn with Wires Under Tension. Tickets are on sale for the show which happens the same day they play Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken with their tour-mate Amen Dunes (who they also played Lincoln Hall in Chicago with). Pictures from the Ecstatic gig are in this post
Last night (2/9)'s show was split into three acts:

This Will Destroy You will team with Amen Dunes (who played 285 Kent last night) for a set of dates in late January and into February. The trek, which charts a path most through the Midwest, East Coast, and into the South, will include a stop in NYC at the Kaufman Center at NYU on 2/9 with A Far Cry and Slow Six. The show is part of the previously discussed Ecstatic Music Festival and tickets are still on sale for the invidiual show or the entire festival.
This Will Destroy You recently released the "Black Dunes" single, which features the album track and a remix. Stream that, as well as their recent LP Tunnel Blanket below. The band also recently scored The Deep Field.
