Explosions In The Sky

With a reputation for scathingly intense live performances, Explosions in the Sky were touted early on in their career as the next phenomenon in moody and dynamic instrumental indie rock à la Mogwai and Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Eventually they became one of the genre's most commercially successful bands, scoring several motion pictures and being featured in countless other films, television series, and video games. The quartet of Texas kids, made up of Mark Smith and Munaf Rayani on guitars, Michael James on bass, and Christopher Hrasky on drums, was signed for its first release on Temporary Residence Limited after half-a-listen to the foursome's 2000 CD-R How Strange, Innocence, which was submitted by the American Analog Set with a brief note saying "This totally f*cking destroys." From there, they released their first widely distributed album, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Live Forever, in the latter half of 2001.

After a new record, 2003's contemplative The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place, the group contributed to the 2004 film Friday Night Lights, creating a stirring soundtrack to the drama set in their home state of Texas. Due to popular demand, Temporary Residence gave How Strange, Innocence its first widely available release in 2005. That same year, EitS contributed mini-album The Rescue to the label's Travels in Constants series of limited-edition EPs. The group's fourth proper full-length, All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone, appeared in 2007, and became their first album to chart in the Billboard Top 200 albums chart, peaking at number 76.

By the time they released their fifth album, 2011's Take Care, Take Care, Take Care, their fan base had expanded enough to land the album in the Top 20. Two years later, they teamed up with fellow Austin resident David Wingo to do the score for David Gordon Green's film Prince Avalanche. Explosions in the Sky continued to score films over the next few years with Lone Survivor and Manglehorn before releasing their sixth full-length effort, The Wilderness, in 2016. ~ Blake Butler

These are the sounds of my lifes journy. If i could onlyfind the beat inn my soul to fly again. Shes just floating. Watching and observing. Al the unkind things In this world that had me lost...my hand is gone and Im not whole anymore. My sadness forsake me most times and my will to go on is only with the sounds in my headphones. ...

Bubbling out of this song is the FNL ethic of Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose and if you've ever been in a #TXHSFB locker room getting ready for the game, you can feel the building power of this song. They got it, dead solid perfect. Coach Taylor would say, I'm a firm believer in you can do anything you put your mind to, and yourself, you, I believe you can do anything you put your mind to. This song will help you believe that...

I deleted your comment on their faith, or lack of, WHO THE F CARES! This is music, its a language, you're basically saying don't communicate or listen to someone based off their beliefs. Hope you realize your religion and beliefs are crap if you put people down for not believing in what you believe in. Respect people for their individual beliefs, don't respect people for simply following the other sheeple. Please do some soul searching and realize the errors of your statement. Love U all, even u
