Texas-based instrumental experimentalists Explosions in the Sky have added  another run of North American dates to their ongoing tour in support of The  Wilderness, far and away their most ambitious and accomplished record yet.  The new dates focus on the western portion of the country, a fitting complement  to their ongoing eastern US tour, and include a performance at Los Angeles’s  storied Greek Theatre - full dates below. The live shows for The Wilderness to  date have reflected the aggressively modern and forward-thinking approach of  the band’s current chapter, both musically and visually, consequently selling out  the biggest venues of their storied career.

The new dates arrive on the heels of the recent release of “The Ecstatics,” the  first music video from The Wilderness. The short film is a stunning stop-motion  animation clip by director Hayley Morris, who Creators Project lauded for her  unique talent for “turning her static paper sculptures into expressive and  mesmerizing video graphics.” Morris elaborated on the meticulous animation  process via an interview with Fast Company, who described the short film as “an abstract odyssey into the nether regions of the mind.”

“This wasn’t just a gig. This was an arrival 16 years coming. This was Pink Floyd just before Live at Pompeii. This was the moment when EITS went from being Texas’ kings of post-rock to scene emperors.” - AUSTIN CHRONICLE
