Bay Area thrashers LIGHT THIS CITY have joined forces with labelmates THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD and THE ACACIA STRAIN along with FROM A SECOND STORY WINDOW (replacing IF HOPE DIES) on the upcoming THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD headlining tour. Sponsored by Draven Shoes and Decibel magazine, the tour will cross the U.S. from November 16 to December 17 and will mark LIGHT THIS CITY's return to the road after the band's two-month stint on the Spreading The Disease tour alongside SUICIDE SILENCE, ALL SHALL PERISH and NIGHTS LIKE THESE and subsequent three-week run alongside CALIBAN and THE ACACIA STRAIN.

"We are more than excited about getting the opportunity to tour with our good friends in THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD and THE ACACIA STRAIN," drummer Ben Murray said. "We have toured with both of those bands in the past and can't wait to join forces again! We'll see all of you guys at the shows. It should be a month of good times."

LIGHT THIS CITY continues to support the band's third release, "Facing The Thousand", which was released in September through Prosthetic Records. Produced by Zack Ohren and featuring artwork by Robot Plague's Mario Garza, "Facing The Thousand" was recorded in March of 2006 and is the follow-up to 2005's "Remains of the Gods". The record features a guest vocal appearance by THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER's Trevor Strnad on the track "Fear of Heights".
