The album’s first single, “Trembling Hands,” can also be previewed in its entirety at Pitchfork, and downloaded for free at www.explosionsinthesky.com.
The Austin TX quartet has also added two more dates in its upcoming world tour: a special April 30 appearance at the rarely played Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles and May 1 at the Fox Theater in Oakland. The tour, which kicks off April 1 at the Lyric in Oxford MS, features Explosions In The Sky’s biggest headline engagement to date–April 6 at New York City’s famed Radio City Music Hall–plus numerous worldwide headline and festival dates, as well as a recently added pair of shows supporting Arcade Fire in Austin and Houston.
The Octopus Project will support on all U.S. headline dates except Radio City, where openers will be Low and Eluvium, the latter playing a first ever piano only solo set. UK/EU support will be Lichens.
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 first full length studio effort since 2007’s All Of A Sudden I Miss Everyone. The record was mixed by Congleton at Austin TX’s Public Hi Fi studio and features artwork by longtime visual collaborator Esteban Rey.
