Explosions In The Sky

With a reputation for a scathingly intense live performance and a quickly sold-out CD-R demo, How Strange, Innocence, which was later reissued in 2005, Explosions in the Sky was 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! 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 their demo, which was submitted by the American Analog Set with a brief note saying "This totally f*cking destroys." From that, they released their first six-song album, Those Who Tell the Truth, in the latter half of 2001. After a new record, 2003's contemplative The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place, and the 2005 re-release, Explosions in the Sky, who had by this time garnered a dedicated fan base, came out with All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone in 2007. The band also found some exposure by lending their emotive songwriting to the soundtracks of both the film and television series Friday Night Lights, creating a stirring soundtrack to the drama set in their home state of Texas. In 2011, the quartet got back to writing albums, releasing Take Care, Take Care, Take Care on Temporary Residence. Two years later, the band teamed up with fellow Austin resident David Wingo to do the score for David Gordon Green's film, Prince Avalanche. ~ Blake Butler, Rovi

Purple pride.
My favourite band. Your Hand In Mine is my favourite song and has been for the past year at least.
Beautiful
Now one of my favorite groups!!

Saw these guys open for Nine Inch Nails. One guitar was way louder than everything else and the only thing you heard was one note being banged on for 45 minutes. DING DING DING DING DING DING DING! Band Techs tuning the instruments are more engaging. The only thing that could make these guys interesting would be VERY HEAVY drug use.
I always get lost deep inside myself when I hear these guys.... Moving to say the least
Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose
SEE IN CONCERT! Life changing experience. It will force you to be spiritual once you realize how mood altering a sound without words can be. Especially when you realize the music doesn't need a voice to prolifically speak to you.

I'm leaning towards the fact that it helps people get through tough times. No doubt. Much love to you all. Keep the world bright. Its not a cold dead place.
I recall one of my teachers playing "your hand in mine" and "first breath after coma" I told him it was amazing and he gave me the song names and artist. Ever since then I have loved EITS amazing music!
Explosions in the sky is the best band I've ever heard no doubt about it! Amazing music it is so emotional and amazing! Thank you EITS for this awesome music!
Brings back memories of baseball!
"Texas forever, Street.... Texas forever!!!!"
I drove 7 hours from Jacksonville FL to Asheville NC to see them play live. It was totally worth the trip. Amazing music, and band.
I cry every time I watch Friday night lights cuz I've been in that situation before. It haunts u forever. U just think well what if I do this or what if I did that. U replay it over and over again. Worst feeling in the world
Need to see them here in the Inland Empire (CA)...Small venue like the Fox Theater here in Riverside would be amazing. Going to see Lone Survivor so I can listen to them.
They're freaking amazing. That is all.
Their music just moves me.
Amazing with no vocals I can always recognize them, even songs I've never heard..
One amazing song

Explosions in the Sky rips you apart yet simultaneous l y puts you back together again. It has the power to take you to a place far from where you are, a place where you would give anything to be: past, present, or future.
Destroyed Total Fuckingly!

WHEN YOU WANT TO SUCCEED AS BAD AS YOU WANT TO BREATHE, THEN YOU WILL BE SUCCESSFUL.
I've been in love with their music for years and can only hope that one day I will be present during a live performance. Their music is empowering and takes me away to beautiful places :). In 2010, I married the love of my life, and I walked down the isle to "your hand in mine" in my wedding dress. It was the most beautiful moment of my life--until we had our daughter. Now, the most beautiful moment(s) in my life since then, has been watching my baby girl fall asleep to explosions <3

@subimon, you hit right on the head! watching them live is simply breathtaking . there really is no greater feeling than the buildup in your heart as they build up their songs. if i had to just choose one band to listen to for the rest of my life, i'd definitely choose explosions, hands down!
I love this band. The thoughts that come to mind and the emotions that drum up when listening to this band are the lyrics...
ONE THING CAN SAY THOUSANDS OF WORDS,( if your like me you will cry at the song landfill by daughter

Your hand in mine is the best. It reminds me of so much.i love explosions in the sky
I did find them from FNL, but there's no way to explain what this beast call ETS has become to my daily life god dammit I wish I had friends who could come I there concerts with but they all like F'ing Rihanna of Pitbull. It just hurts how good they are.
Who doesn't like Explosions in the Sky, I've built a sleep schedule around them.
This is a beautiful song. Full of life, feelings, and even with no words...mean i n g :') thank u <3
Wow! ._.
This is calm yet so Intense
I love the beats they kind of built something inside me ..
FNL
Its so calming, soothing an sad all at the same time yet empowering
The Moon is Down is the best.
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you have started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works

Ahhhh best station out there. Also thanks +lavonababbi t t for giving us our daily bull crap supplement.
