It’s been almost four years since the last official EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY longplayer Take Care, Take Care, Take Care. In the meantime the post-rock heroes from Texas recorded the score for the movie Prince Avalanche and Mark Smith also formed the ambient side-project INVENTIONS that released a full-length record last April. But now it looks like the band is officially back in the studio to record a new album, although it might take some time before we hear any actual music from it.
In a statement, released via the band’s Facebook page, EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY write:
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 for all of you. We’re now in our sixteenth year as a band and we’re grateful every single day that you’re still listening. Take care.
NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION will keep you updated on any news. In the meantime we enjoy a more recent track by the band.
