Instrumental/post-rock heroes THIS WILL DESTROY YOU will unveil their new video for “Lie Down In The Light” this Saturday via Adult Swim’s Toonami.
Toonami is a television programming block that primarily consists of Japanese anime and American animation. Toonami initially ran as an afternoon and evening block on Cartoon Network, aimed at teens aged 12–15 from 1997 to 2008. In its original run, the block was known for showcasing action anime that became widely popular with American audiences. It was also recognized for its distinctive space-themed backdrop, anime music videos, drum and bass-flavored soundtrack, and host (a robot named T.O.M., short for Toonami Operations Module). In 2010, Cartoon Network relaunched Toonami as part of its Adult Swim block – which continues as a Saturday night action block from its forerunner, Midnight Run. Shows from the older lineup have occasionally returned, along with newer shows.
THIS WILL DESTROY YOU’s “Lie Down In The Light” clip, illustrated and animated by Lil Fuchs (Captain Murphy, Skrillex, Neon Indian, The Hold Steady, Holy Ghost! etc.) will appear on Toonami at 11:00pm in each time zone. For more info visit: http://www.adultswim.com/toonami/.
“Lie Down In The Light” comes by way of the band’s New Others Part Two full-length, released last fall via Dark Operative. The unexpected sixth studio album from THIS WILL DESTROY YOU andspectacular sequel to New Others Part One, was again captured by John Congleton, the Grammy award-winning producer responsible for the sound of the band’s wildly popular self-titled sophomore album of ten years ago. Now comprised of core members Jeremy Galindo and Christopher King with the addition of drummer Robi Gonzalez, New Others Part Two continues in the band’s new tradition of a familiar, but evolved ethos wherein the memorable melodic component present in their early work once again soars atop progressive sonic territories for the band and listener alike.
