Explosions in the Sky Announces New Tour Dates

by Jonathan Kosakow

22 February 2012

 

Within minutes of announcing their 12-date tour of the (mostly western) United States, Explosions in the Sky had to make it a 13-date tour. Their San Francisco date sold out almost instantly, making it more than necessary to play an extra night at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater.

Whether it’s the success of their most recent album, 2011’s Take Care, Take Care, Take Care or their apparently earth shattering live show, Explosions may have just turned their name into reality.

Check below for tour dates, and a weirdly hilarious (also hilariously weird) yet touching video, Be Comfortable, Creature.

Double Take: 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid' (1969)

// Short Ends and Leader

"The two Steves at Double Take are often mistaken for Paul Newman and Robert Redford; so it's appropriate that they shoot it out over Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
