Explosions in the Sky (formed in 1999) is an American post-rock band that has surpassed the popularity of the post-rock genre with their instrumental-driven, symphonic playing style, hailing from Austin, Texas, U.S.

Formerly of the moniker Breaker Morant, Explosions of the Sky was formed in 1999 by drummer Chris Hrasky and guitarists Michael James, Munaf Rayani, and Mark Smith. The band made their debut recording at KVRX with the track “Remember Me as a Time of Day”, followed by the group’s full-length debut “How Strange, Innocence”. Distributed locally on CD-Rs, the album earned Explosions in the Sky a small local following and rehearsal footage found its way onto the feature film “Cicadas”, which later won an Austin Film Festival award.

Shortly after, the band signed with Temporary Residence Limited after fellow Austin band The American Analog Set submitted an Explosions in the Sky demo. The group’s sophomore album “Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Live Forever” came under particular scrutiny for the connections with the September 11 World Trade Centre attacks. The album artwork depicted an airplane with the caption “This Plane Will Crash Tomorrow” and was released on September 4, 2001. Explosions in the Sky supported the release opening for post-rock band Fugazi in 2002 and went on to release their poignantly-thick third studio album “The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place”. The album continued the band’s luscious and layered trend of musical production, however, introduced an element of predictability that had been absent on its predecessors.

In 2004 the band scored the soundtrack to the 2004 film “Friday Night Lights”, and a year later re-released “Explosions in the Sky” to a growing and enthusiastic fan base. 2007’s “All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone” once again introduced a beautifully layered and unpretentiously chaotic album, followed four years later by “Take Care, Take Care, Take Care” once again on Temporary Residence. With the success of “Friday Night Lights” the band scored the soundtrack to the David Gordon Green film “Prince Avalanche” in 2013 and “Manglehorn” in 2014.
