This Will Destroy Your Ears Brighton

This Will Destroy Your Ears live in Brighton at The Hope & Ruin on 7th March 2024!
Get free tickets above, or from SeeTickets.

It might be easy to stop in front of this band’s apocalyptic name and walk on by… convinced that you’re entering a deliberately badly lit alley or already exhausted by the heavy weather forecast. However, even if this most Mancunian trio from the suburbs of Hossegor is indeed committed to the democratisation of tinnitus, it would be far too simplistic to classify them as a “too loud for Mum” band (especially if Mum likes the dancing melodies of the 80s, contemporary art, and the end-of-the-world energy of the 90s…) Formed in 2017 in the Landes region of south-west France by Magali, Quentin and Pierre-Johann, the members of This Will Destroy Your Ears, who are at once choreographers, visual artists, video makers and specialists in wall-mounted sockets, are what is now known as a DIY band.

They then shared the stage with USA Nails, JOHN, Black Midi or METZ and never stopped going back and forth between their English and French audiences. In 2019, they released their first album CLEAR, recorded in one week at pARPAINg with the help of Boris Lehachoir and Dorian Verdier (keyboard player at JC SÀTAN) and mixed in London at Wayne Adams’ Bear Bite Horses Studio on Cowboy À La Mode (FR) and Brutalist Records (UK) labels. After a few confinements and the À TOI À MOI “musical blending” EP created with The Eurosuite (London), Naguals (Sheffield) and Shoefiti (Paris), they release their second album, EVERYBODY KNOWS MICKEY, on November 18, 2022 on French labels Cowboy À La Mode and À Tant Rêver Du Roi, and on English label Brutalist Records. 
Recorded once more at their pARPAINg studio, they are joined by Henri d’Armancourt (Steve Amber, The Psychotic Monks) for production, Alex Greaves (Heavy Lungs, LICE, Ditz) for mixing, and Carl Saff (Bambara, Protomartyr, Fu Manchu) for mastering. Even more polished and accomplished than its predecessor, we find with this release both the band’s live energy and their unconditional love for melodies that place them somewhere few people dare to venture. Because yes, This Will Destroy Your Ears does love people a lot, they just tend to tell them way too loudly. https://thiswilldestroyyourears.bandcamp.com/
