This Will Be the Death of Us is the second studio album by American rock band Set Your Goals, released July 21, 2009 on Epitaph Records.


The album was produced by Mike Green (Paramore, The Matches)[7] and is their debut on Epitaph Records after their manager reportedly paid $150,000 to their previous label, Eulogy Recordings, to buy out their contract.[8]

The album features various guest vocals including Vinnie Caruana of I Am the Avalanche and The Movielife on opener and title track, "This Will Be the Death of Us". Hayley Williams of Paramore also features on "The Few That Remain", whilst ex-vocalist of Turmoil Jon Gula is featured on "Gaia Bleeds (Make Way For Man)". The album is closed with the 90s skate punk influenced "Our Ethos: A Legacy to Pass On", featuring vocals from New Found Glory’s Chad Gilbert.[7] Jordan Pundik, also of New Found Glory provides vocals on the Japanese bonus track "The Lost Boys".[9]


Between late September and mid November, the band supported on Mayday Parade on the AP Fall Ball Tour.[10]
