Texas post-rock band This Will Destroy You formed in 2005. Members Chris King (guitars), Jeremy Galindo (guitars), Raymond Brown (bass), and Andrew Miller (drums) came together under the notion of pursuing a purely instrumental project, and recorded their demo -- which would end up being released as is -- shortly after getting together. The EP, entitled Young Mountain, was critically well received, and the band inked a deal with Magic Bullet Records. Brown was out of the band by 2007, replaced by Donovan "Dono" Jones, who took over bass duties as well as adding haunting Rhodes keyboards and other keyboard tones. Their self-titled full-length was released in 2008 and followed the next year by a split album with friends the Lymbyc Systym entitled Field Studies. Around the same time Miller dropped off as drummer, being replaced by new timekeeper Alex Bhore. The year 2010 saw the release of the EP Moving on the Edges of Things as well as the Communal Blood single. The band moved progressively more toward a dark hybrid of doom metal and shoegaze as the years went by. Proper second album Tunnel Blanket materialized in 2011 and saw release on the Suicide Squeeze label. Various remixes and appearances on compilations and film soundtracks kept the band busy, and they even released a live album in 2013 with Live in Reykjavik, Iceland. Three years after Tunnel Blanket, and amid troubling times for the entire band, fourth album Another Language was released in the fall of 2014. ~ Fred Thomas
