Sorry that we've been running silent for awhile. The last few years have been pretty hectic for us (touring, working on soundtracks, etc.), so we've spent the last few months in hibernation. 2015 will also be on the quiet side, at least as far as touring and shows are concerned. This is because we'll be spending most of our time writing and recording stuff for a new album. We're well into the process, but we still have a ways to go. We're pretty excited about what we're coming up with and we'll keep you posted as we go. Anyway, we just wanted to say welcome to 2015 and we hope it goes okay...
Mark T. Smith of Explosions in the Sky has teamed up with Eluvium's Matthew Cooper for a new band called Inventions. A trailer for the new project can be found in the replies, the band will be releasing an album in April.
Explosions In the Sky will write the score for a new comedy called Prince Avalanche. The movie is directed by David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, The Sitter) and stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch. The band has previously had its music appear in the movie Friday Night Lights.
Explosions in the Sky are drawing some ire for a theatre marquee that reads "Explosions in the Sky" on "Sept. 11." The sign in Boise, Idaho, is promoting a concert (obviously) - but that hasn't stopped people from freaking out.
