This Will Destroy You announces new album and shares ‘Dustism’

HOB034 - 900x900

ORDER NOW – 2LP/CD/Digital

Hobbledehoy 2LP vinyl first press limited to 500 Navy Blue. Deluxe gatefold with copper foil printing.

Since 2004, THIS WILL DESTROY YOU has been forging some of the world’s most brutal, dynamic, and precariously visceral instrumental rock. In addition to a vigorous tour schedule, their celebrated discography and critically renowned soundtrack work for feature films and documentaries have earned them a sizable and fervent international following. Another Language, TWDY’s fourth full length LP, marks their euphonious return from a prolonged vacuous dark period that threatened to break both the band and the members themselves. Rather than be stifled by their experience TWDY were atomized and subsequently made anew, emerging with a revived energy and reinforced sense of solidarity. As a result, Another Language captures the band at its most potent, honed, and utterly powerful form yet, displaying an edified unity and graduated sense of song-writing, tonal complexity, and studio prowess.

VIDEO: Ceres – Syllables


If you’ve ever wondered which colourful characters you might encounter at a CERES gig, they’re all represented here in the brand new video for their rocking tune ‘Syllables’ – and it’s nice to see they’ve got at least one superfan. The song is taken from their debut album I Don’t Want To Be Anywhere But Here, out now. You can also thank the good folks at Rockaway Creative for coming up with this film clip.

Jamie Hay ‘Water Memory’ EP: Benefit for Domestic Violence Crisis service WDVCS

Jamie Hay Liam White

Taken from Jamie Hay’s tumblr blog:

Hey Everyone, I am really pleased to announce that I have 2 new songs for download! accompanied by limited edition prints by Chris Colohan & Ben Soedradjit with all profits going to the Women’s Domestic Violence Crisis Service.

I chose to donate the proceeds to WDVCS because they are a not for profit and do incredible work supporting woman & children who suffer at the hands of their abusers. I believe that domestic violence is a national emergency. The fact that in Australia, one woman is killed every week by her partner or ex-partner is shocking & frightening. We need to create and continue discussion about it to bring it more to the surface. I can write a song about it but organisations like WDVCS are doing real work & need our support.

Women’s Domestic Violence Crisis Service of Victoria (WDVCS) is the state-wide not-for-profit service for women and children experiencing violence and abuse from a partner or ex-partner, another family member or someone close to them. WDVCS provides emergency accommodation, a free 24-hour crisis line, outreach services, advocacy, referral, and information and support services to enable women and children to become – and stay – free from violence.

Water Memory & Hurry to Heaven are two new songs by Jamie Hay with Liam White. Recorded, Mixed & Mastered by Sam Johnson at Three Phase Studios, Melbourne on January 23rd 2014.

Accompanying this release are hand screened prints by Artists Ben Soedradjit & Chris Colohan.

Ben Soedradjit “There is no fear in love” – lino cut & hand printed & numbered on A2 size 200gsm stock limited to 30
Chris Colohan “Hurry to Heaven” – 2 colour hand printed & numbered on A2 size 200gsm stock limited to 50

Kevin Devine joins Hobbledehoy + releases Bubblegum / Bulldozer albums

Kevin Devine

In all respects, this has been a long time coming.

Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Kevin Devine and I have crossed paths before many years ago, but here we are again, and I couldn’t be happier. His innovative music sits somewhere between conventional genres, still retaining an incredible level of accessibility, intelligence and oftentimes a bold simplicity. His musical career is a story of hard work, building on small victories and embracing supporters. It’s a great fit for Hobbledehoy, and truly an honour to be working with Kevin and his own self-release label Devinyl for AUS/NZ. He had this to say…

“Devinyl is proud to team up with Hobbledehoy – a smart, motivated, truly independent label with a cool & diverse roster. I’m relieved & excited to have found such a philosophically-aligned home for these albums.”

Kevin has released not one but two new albums, and simultaneously to boot. One, Bulldozer, is a solo effort produced by Elliott Smith collaborator Rob Schnapf, and the other, Bubblegum, a full band effort with his Goddamn Band, produced by Jesse Lacey of Brand NewRaising over $100k via a Kickstarter campaign to fund album production and touring, Devine was subsequently highly motivated, buzzing with the amount raised which was over double the $50k target. The result, two brilliant, and different, full length albums.

The Bubblegum/Bulldozer albums are available to download from iTunes and other digital retailers immediately. The vinyl LP and CD editions can be pre-ordered now and will ship  from April 2, before the official street date of April 11 2014 when the albums will be in stores nationally.
