Tunnel Blanket is the second studio album by the American band This Will Destroy You. Recorded and mixed by John Congleton,[7] it was released in Europe on May 9, 2011, on Monotreme Records,[8] and on May 10 on Suicide Squeeze Records for the rest of the world with the exception of Australia and New Zealand where it was released by Hobbledehoy Record Co.[9]

Tunnel Blanket consists of drone style music, with the band's members describing it as 'doomgaze', a cross between doom metal and shoegazing. The album is described as dark, with a theme of death.[10]

This is the first album to feature bassist/keyboardist Donovan Jones and drummer Alex Bhore.
