They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. And upon first hearing the band name This Will Destroy You, you might think “Hmm, they must not like to follow this mantra very well.” But hold your horses there, cowboy! Because their name is quite deceiving.
This Will Destroy You is an instrumental rock quartet hailing from Austin’s next door neighbor, San Marcos. The band consists of Chris King and Jeremy Galindo on guitar, Donovan Jones on bass and keys, and Alex Bhore on drums. With three EPs and two studio albums, This Will Destroy You is on the brink of major musical success. The band has been thrown into the same post-rock bucket with bands such as Explosions in the Sky and Godspeed You! Black Emperor. But This Will Destroy You has learned how to kick the bucket and create splashy puddles, demanding differentiation for themselves.
With stand out songs such as “There Are Some Remedies Worse Than the Disease” and “The World is Our __”, This Will Destroy You has put their own spin on the post-rock genre with their original, lusty and cascading sounds.
On Saturday, December 1st, you can enjoy the band’s creative musical constructions first-hand! Eye In The Sky Collective presents This Will Destroy You at Beauty Ballroom at 9 pm. Other artists set to perform include My Empty Phantom, Roger Sellers, and Borrisokane.
