Instrumental Texan quartet Explosions In The Sky return to Australia this December with their powerfully intense live show. Equal parts romance and tragedy, their beautiful melodies have the tendency to ignite into head-spinning walls of noise.
Made up of Mark Smith, Michael James and Munaf Rayani on guitars and Christopher Hrasky on drums, Explosions In The Sky signed to Temporary Residence Limited in 2000 after one listen to their demo, which was submitted by Texan allies the American Analog Set with a note simply stating “This totally fucking destroys.” The band have since released seven albums, the latest being Take Care, Take Care, Take Care.
In addition to the already announced Meredith Music Festival, Explosions In The Sky will bring their epically moving and inspiring show to the Forum in Melbourne, The Metro in Sydney and The Hi Fi in Brisbane.
