Explosions In The Sky Return & Take Care


Nothin’ but net: album
drops April 26.


By Blurt Staff


The long-awaited (like, over three years) new Explosions In
The Sky album, their fifth, is finally en route. Take Care, Take Care, Take Care arrives April 26 on Temporary
Residence Ltd. in the U.S. and Bella Union in the UK (April 25). Recorded at
Sonic Ranch in El Paso TX by John Congleton and produced by the
band,  it’s the followup to 2007’s All Of A Sudden I Miss Everyone. The
record was mixed by Congleton at Austin TX’s Public Hi Fi studio and features
artwork by longtime visual collaborator Esteban Rey.


Keep your eyes peeled for the spring issue of BLURT magazine
as we’re planning a big EITS feature – long overdue on that count, too, no lie.

Meanwhile, tickets are on sale now for Explosions In The Sky’s biggest
headlining show to date: April 6 at New York City’s
Radio City Music Hall
featuring special guests Low and a first ever solo piano performance by
Eluvium. The Radio City date is the first confirmed stop on Explosions In
The Sky’s forthcoming 2011 tour, whose UK/Europe leg commences May 16 in Dublin and runs through May 25 in Amsterdam. Further dates will be announced as
they are confirmed.
