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.

Recording[edit]

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]
