Explosions In The Sky announce new record, End, out on September 15th via Temporary Residence

After having recently announced an ominously-titled The End Tour that will run through North America later this year, the ever-innovative, instrumental post-rock quartet Explosions In The Sky have announced their new record, which promises to shed some light on the matter. Entitled End, this enigmatic new record by Explosions in the Sky was inspired by darkness, but became a loud, dramatic and wild rumination on life and death.

“Our starting point was the concept of an ending – death, or the end of a friendship or relationship. Every song comes from a story, or an idea one of us has had that we’ve all expanded on and made its own world. Maybe it’s our nature, but we kept feeling that the album title was ultimately open to a lot more interpretation – the end of a thing or a time can mean a stop, but it can also mean a beginning, and what happens after one thing ends might pale in comparison to what it becomes next,” says the band about the record. End is perhaps the “grandest” Explosions In The Sky record, as it melds the quiet restraint and crushing feel of their early recordings with the aural exploration and ornate experimentation of their later works, while incorporating their increasingly deep film and television scoring catalog. Below this article, you can listen to and watch the video for the record’s first single, “Ten Billion People”.

End will be released on September 15th via Temporary Residence. Physical and digital pre-orders are now available here.
