Explosions In The Sky

Ever since witnessing the spectacle that is Explosions In The Sky performing live, back in 2003, I have being waiting for them to release the follow up to "The Earth Is Not A Cold Place" with baited breath. On that night, the band were simply jaw-dropping and I have since missed them on two separate occasions. The first time they played in Glasgow, when I was in Toronto and the second time I was flying back to Glasgow while they were in Toronto!!. All very frustrating, and apart from the release of the mini-album "The Rescue", the silence from Explosions has been deafening.

That is, until now. According to their website, Explosions have completed the writing process for the new album. There are six songs ranging from 3 minutes to 13 minutes. Recording should start in August, and there is a tentative release date for February 2007. Let's hope things go according to plan.

In the meantime, "The Rescue" is available to download in its entirety, completely free here. The band have also posted some notes on the recording process too. My favourite track is "Day Six". You can download "Day Six" here, but if you want the full album go to their website.
