This Will Destroy You

When: Tue., June 15 2010

Post-rockers This Will Destroy You will be bringing their destructive brand of instrumentalist music to the Oasis. The quartet features Chris King on guitar, Donovan Jones on bass/keyboard, Jeremy Galindo on guitar, and Alex Bhore on drums. This Will Destroy You is touring in anticipation of their summer release Tunnel Vision from Magic Bullet Records. The Texas-based band also put out a split EP called Field Studies in January with fellow Southwestern instrumentalists Lymbyc Systym. They also just released a single from the new album entitled “Communal Blood,” which is available for previewing online. This Will Destroy You’s music has often been labeled as cascade rock or cinematic rock for it’s rising and falling crescendos as well as the emotive tones that beg for the listener to use them as the canvas for their own imagined tale. Fittingly, the band’s music has been featured in several movie trailers and commercials including The Taking of Pelham 123. This Will Destroy You will be accompanied by the post-rock, metal-tinged band Chiaroscuro. The show starts at 8. —Cameron Jones
