In touring news, Papercuts have been confirmed as support for the last two dates of Explosions In The Sky’s current U.S. tour, April 30’s sold out appearance at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Forever Cemetery and May 1 at the Fox Theater in Oakland. The April 30 date will be preceded by a very special outdoor art and listening event taking place exactly one week prior to the band’s performance at the same site: On April 23, Hollywood Forever Cemetery will be host to Taking Care 6: Visual Interpretations, an installation set up on the cemetery grounds consisting of works by six different visual artists, each created in response to one of the six songs on Take Care, Take Care, Take Care. Tickets to Taking Care 6: Visual Interpretations are free with RSVP at www.ticketweb.com/hollywoodforever while supplies last. The event is Rain or Shine. Doors open at 8 p.m. and the cemetery closes at 11 p.m.
Since returning to the road earlier this month, Explosions In The Sky has played its biggest ever headline show April 6 at New York’s Radio City Music Hall (a performance The New York Times described as a 74-minute-long “unbroken reverie”) and will support Arcade Fire for two dates in Explosions’ native Texas before heading abroad for a UK/Europe tour featuring sold out headline engagements at the Roundhouse in London and Le Bataclan in Paris.
Following its return from Europe in June, Explosions In The Sky will play the Bonnaroo festival in Manchester TN as well as a newly announced June 17 headline at ACL Live at the Moody Theater in its homebase of Austin TX.
Recorded at Sonic Ranch in El Paso TX by John Congleton and produced by the band, Take Care, Take Care, Take Care will be Explosions In The Sky’s fifth album and first 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.
