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.

The​ ​cover​ ​of​ ​Sannhet’s​ ​third​ ​album,​ ​​So​ ​Numb​,​ ​features​ ​a​ ​mother​ ​shielding​ ​her​ ​son’s​ ​eyes​ ​with her​ ​hands​ ​-​ ​an​ ​allegory​ ​depicting​ ​the​ ​protection​ ​one​ ​receives​ ​from​ ​their​ ​parents,​ ​but​ ​it​ ​isn’t meant​ ​to​ ​be​ ​sentimental.​ ​As​ ​the​ ​mother​ ​shelters​ ​her​ ​child,​ ​she​ ​inadvertently​ ​creates​ ​a​ ​false sense​ ​of​ ​safety.​ ​The​ ​child,​ ​in​ ​turn,​ ​spends​ ​it’s​ ​life​ ​seeking​ ​comfort​ ​and​ ​escape​ ​in​ ​temporary solutions.

Though ​​Sannhet ​​meditate ​​on​​ life’s ​​imperfect ​​escapes,​S​​o ​​Numb​’s ​​nine ​​songs ​​showcase ​​the band​ ​facing​ ​life’s​ ​pain​ ​and​ ​joy​ ​with​ ​their​ ​eyes​ ​wide​ ​open.​ ​The​ ​collection’s​ ​emotional​ ​landscape​ ​is one​ ​of​ ​existential​ ​dread,​ ​melancholy,​ ​and​ ​loss​ ​-​ ​ammunition​ ​for​ ​escapists.​ ​Despite​ ​these existential​ ​conundrums,​ ​So​ ​Numb​ ​has​ ​an​ ​uplifting,​ ​euphoric​ ​feel.
