Millions Now Living Will Never Die

Millions Now Living Will Never Die is the second album by the Chicago-based band Tortoise. Released in 1996 by Thrill Jockey Records, Millions... is renowned as a groundbreaking album for post-rock; an uncredited review from declares that not long after the album's release, the group was "hailed as godfathers of the American 'post-rock' movement".[1] In 2008 the album was performed live in its entirety as part of the All Tomorrow's Parties-curated Don't Look Back series.

The album's title comes from a phrase used in the Jehovah's Witness faith, especially in the early 1900s.[2][3] It is, for instance, the title of an essay (in Spanish Millones que ahora viven no morirán jamás[4]) by Joseph Franklin Rutherford, who was the second president of the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society.
