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 fromThe 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
