In the wake of its new album Take Care, Take Care, Take Care debuting at #16 in the U.S., selling approximately 30,000 units since its April 26 release on Temporary Residence Ltd., Explosions In The Sky has confirmed dates and cities for the next North American leg of its ongoing 2011 tour.
Fan club pre-sale for the new dates begin Wednesday, May 25 with general on sale following Friday, May 27.
Explosions In The Sky is currently in the midst of a UK/Europe headline tour that has featured sold out headline engagements at the Roundhouse in London and Le Bataclan in Paris. The fall 2011 shows are the latest in an ongoing itinerary that recently saw the band play sell-out dates April 30 at Los Angeles' Hollywood Forever Cemetery and May 1 at the Fox Theater in Oakland, as well as its biggest ever headline show April 6 at New York's Radio City Music Hall–of which The New York Times said "the movie-palace splendor of Radio City Music Hall made an appropriately majestic backdrop for Explosions In The Sky."
Between the current UK/Europe run and the Fall 2011 tour, Explosions In The Sky will play the Bonnaroo festival in Manchester TN and a June 17 headline date at ACL Live at the Moody Theater in its homebase of Austin TX.
Explosions In The Sky has also announced its first confirmed show of 2012: January 27 at Brixton Academy in London. The 4500-capacity venue will be the band's biggest UK headline to date, and follows on its sold out May 19 appearance at the Roundhouse in London.
Recorded at Sonic Ranch in El Paso TX by John Congleton and produced by the band, Take Care, Take Care, Take Care is Explosions In The Sky's fifth album. The record was mixed by Congleton at Austin TX's Public Hi Fi studio and features artwork by longtime visual collaborator Esteban Rey.
