New Others Part Two is the unexpected sixth studio album from instrumental/post-rock heroes THIS WILL DESTROY YOU. The stunning sequel to New Others Part One, issued on September 28th via Dark Operative, 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.

New Others Part One accolades….
“The track, which closes out the album, is a beautiful and somber exercise that uses piano and guitar alongside a bombastic drum section to create an emotional and powerful journey.” – Revolver on “Go Away Closer”
“…a holistically mature and cohesive work…” – Spill Magazine
“[New Others Part One] instantly scratches the itch that TWDY‘s classics do, and it reminds you how diverse their palette of sounds is, from stuff that nears minimal electronic music to stuff that nears metal.” – Brooklyn Vegan/Invisible Oranges
“On New Others Part One, THIS WILL DESTROY YOU shine a spotlight on their percussion, allowing it to be the sometimes erratic, sometimes stabilizing heartbeat of another excellent execution of their signature doomgaze.” — MXDWN
“…a beautifully constructed music journey, and one of THIS WILL DESTROY YOU‘s most cohesive albums yet.” – Complex Distractions
“…yet more proof that the band refuses to stagnate creatively. As far as post/instrumental rock is concerned, THIS WILL DESTROY YOU remain in the top tier.” – Svbterranean
“Putting the word ‘post’ back into the post-rock label, THIS WILL DESTROY YOU have demonstrated with this album that even the mainstays can successfully launch into unfamiliar territory to push the boundaries if they so dare.” – Overdrive Music Magazine
