Explosions In The Sky has confirmed its first headline shows in the UK and Europe since 2008. The 2011 tour will be the band’s first series of shows anywhere since its four-city 10th anniversary trek in summer 2009.
The first dates to be announced commence May 16 in Dublin, run through May 25 in Amsterdam and include Explosions’ biggest London headline to date at the 3000-capacity Roundhouse. Tickets for the May 16-25 shows go on sale November 25.
The world-spanning tour precedes the release of Explosions In The Sky’s eagerly awaited new album, tentatively slated for a spring 2011 release on Temporary Residence Ltd.
More details on the new record and further dates will be announced as they are confirmed.
