Explosions in the Sky Return

Wednesday, 27 April 2011

There is still some life left in the record cover. Here is the rather amazing coverart for the equally amazing and long-awaited fifth album by Texas post-rock pioneers Explosions in the Sky.

The record was released simultaneously on CD and limited edition vinyl, complete with a quadruple gatefold sleeve that constructs two different three-dimensional rooms. Also included is a huge 36" X 36" double-sided poster which provides the base surface, all put together by the band's resident artist and collaborator, Esteban Rey.
