This Will Destroy You with This Patch of Sky
November 10 • 8:00 pm• $14 – $16
On Saturday, November 10, the Community Center for the Performing Arts and University of Oregon Campus Radio 88.1 FM KWVA proudly welcome This Will Destroy You back to the WOW Hall along with Eugene’s own This Patch of Sky.
Post-rock band This Will Destroy You is touring in support of their new album New Others Part One, released September 28th via Dark Operative. The band now consists of members Jeremy Galindo and Christopher King with the addition of drummer Robi Gonzalez. New Others Part One contains seven tracks, all produced, engineered, and mixed by John Congleton, who is also responsible for their sophomore album released a decade ago. The album captures the band in a familiar but evolved ethos wherein the memorable, melodic component present in their early work once again soars atop new sonic territories. Formed in the early 2000’s, This Will Destroy You have spent the last decade and a half touring the planet relentlessly between recording studio albums and scoring various films, television, culinary, and other creative entertainment projects. TWDY initially broke in the United Kingdom where the 2006 debut album Young Mountain was proclaimed “Album of the Year” in Rock Sound. With 2008’s “Self-Titled” album, the band truly grew a global fanbase. Brad Pitt and director Bennett Miller initially paired TWDY’s “The Mighty Rio Grande” to five crucial acts in 2011’s Moneyball, with “Villa Del Refugio” then going into Pitt’s subsequent World War Z and Miller’s next film Foxcatcher. The licensing landscape exploded as the band was represented across all major sporting events (Super Bowl, World Series, Stanley Cup, Wimbledon, ESPY’s, et al) and numerous Emmy-award winning dramas on television.
This Patch Of Sky is an instrumental post-rock band from Eugene. Their music is a gentle, spellbinding tapestry of sounds and emotions. “Our sets tend to be emotional, almost like a 45-minute soundtrack,” notes band member Kit Day. “Once we start playing, we don’t stop in-between songs.”
