Gift of the Day 8/19/10

"Explosions In The Sky is an American instrumental post-rock band, which formed in Austin, Texas in 1999. Munaf Rayani, Mark Smith, and Michael James had just moved to Austin from Midland, Texas, and drummer Chris Hrasky had just moved to Austin from Rockford, Illinois. 'Well, our two years of near constant touring has come to an end. It is now time for us to sit quietly at home and try and write some new songs. We’ve been working in fits and starts and we’re pretty excited about some of the music we’re coming up with. There is really no telling when we may have a new album ready. It will probably be awhile. Aside from coming up with new stuff, we’re looking forward to getting back to our normal lives here in Austin…walking dogs, taking naps, having babies, playing scrabble, painting bathrooms, fixing air conditioners, reading about the Civil War, etc.Well, our two years of near constant touring has come to an end.
