This year, long-running instrumentalists THIS WILL DESTROY YOU are commemorating the tenth anniversary of their second, eponymous album with various performances both stateside and abroad. Dark Operative will be releasing a 2xLP + bonus 7″ edition of the offering to further celebrate its release. The digital edition will be unveiled tomorrow with the physical edition to be issued at a later date. Revolver Magazine is currently streaming previously unreleased cut “Language Of Memory,” exclusive to the impending reissue.
Issues Revolver, “Depending on loud-soft-loud dynamics, drama, heaps of melody, and much more, the instrumental crew helped move the needle in post-rock and indie at a time when the genres were thought to be in decline.”
Adds THIS WILL DESTROY YOU guitarist Chris King, “It’s surreal that a decade has gone by since the release of This Will Destroy You. We’ve experienced many ups and downs over the past ten years but will always look back on this period fondly as one of creative growth and discovery. The energy brought into these sessions was magnetic and became the catalyst that keeps us going to this day.”

The band has a series of limited-engagement performances where they will be playing This Will Destroy You in its entirety including the previously-announced benefit show at Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, California where all event proceeds will go to the Tony Hawk Foundation. The appearance will conclude the North American run of tenth anniversary shows before taking the tour to Europe and the United Kingdom, where the band will be performing with The Cure in London, Godspeed You! Black Emperor in Rome, and headlining various festivals before returning home to put the finishing touches on their new album, due out this fall on Dark Operative and Suicide Squeeze.
