Indie Music Videos: Explosions in the Sky: “Last Known Surroundings”

For the first time in 12 years, instrumental post-rock band Explosions in the Sky has unveiled their first official music video. The animated clip for “Last Known Surroundings” is from the band’s new album Take Care, Take Care, Take Care.

Months in the making, “Last Known Surroundings” directed by Ptarmak, a design studio based in Explosions’ native Austin, who utilized illustrations by Sissy Emmons and animation from David Hobizal to create an otherworldly visual interpretation of the epic instrumental track.

Explosions in the Sky has also just announced a new run of overseas dates. Following a current series that wraps with three August festivals as well as a Sept.-Oct. North American tour, the new dates begin November 4 in Madrid and conclude November 20 in Bristol UK. Explosions in the Sky will be touring with Wye Oak and The Antlers. Check out the video and tour dates below.
