This Will Destroy You to destroy you on summer tour

on May 23, 2010, 11:30am

Texas instrumental post-rockers This Will Destroy You received high praise from high places for the band’s self-titled 2008 debut, and are looking to garner even more with the follow-up. The sophomore effort, dubbed Tunnel Blanket, features production from John Congleton (Explosions in the Sky, Modest Mouse, Chairlift) and will reportedly be darker and more complex than past work from the band.

And while a release date for the record has not yet been set, the four-piece will tour North America this summer supporting it, beginning in the band’s home state on May 26th. The group will traverse the South from there, hitting Florida, of all places, before tailing it back west to Chicago. From there, This Will Destroy You visits Canada for a couple of early-June gigs, and then trips down the East Coast. The band wraps up the tour with several more Southern dates, ending things right back home in Houston on June 19th.

You can score tickets here, and for a preview, download lead single “Communal Blood” below. Or you can wait until the show, where the band will sell an exclusive 12″ single of the track.
