Originally issued by Magic Bullet Records, This Will Destroy You was produced by Grammy-winning producer/engineer John Congleton (Blondie, Marilyn Manson, Bono etc.) at a studio in Spicewood, Texas, owned by the country music icon Willie Nelson. Critically lauded by fans and critics alike, Drowned in Sound called the record “a true classic of its kind.”
