EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY THE WILDERNESS
NEW ALBUM ANNOUNCEMENT + TEMPORARY RESIDENCE LTD.'S PRE-ORDER PAGE FOR INDIE RETAILERS
We are incredibly excited to announce that EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY
is going to be releasing their newest full-length album,The Wilderness,
It’s the band’s sixth album, and first non-soundtrack release since 2011's Take Care, Take Care, Take Care. True to its title, The Wilderness explores the infinite unknown, utilizing several of the band's own definitions of "space" (outer space, mental space, physical geography of space) as compositional tools. It is an album where shoegaze, electronic experimentation, punk damaged dub, noise, and ambient folk somehow coexist without a hint of contrivance - and cohere into some of the most memorable and listenable moments of the band's expansive body of work - "proper" studio albums and major motion picture soundtracks alike. If The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place was the defining album of their career, The Wilderness is the band's [re]defining album.
