Explosions in the Sky finish new album, aim for February release
Explosions in the Sky, better known as the country's premier guitar-oriented post-rock outfit, have just finished recording their third full-length and are planning for a February release, according to their website. Recorded by John Singleton in Minneapolis, the album features six songs "ranging in length from three to thirteen minutes each", and will be classic Explosions territory: soaring melodic guitar, war march snares. The name of this record is unknown at this time, though the band is planning to announce details before their September 16th performance at Austin City Limits.
If you want to get your Explosions in the Sky fill before the summer ends, head over to their official site where you can legally download all eight tracks from 2005's extremely rare Travels in Constants EP they did for the boys at Temporary Residence. If you're a fan of the band or the genre, I highly recommend checking it out.
