Video: Explosions in the Sky – “Last Known Surroundings”

on June 22, 2011, 1:17pm

Despite a career that (thus far) spans 12 years and 6 full-length albums, Explosions in the Sky have never released a music video. All that changes with the animated eight-minute epic for “Last Known Surroundings”, which premiered on Wired.com. Created by Austin design studio Ptarmak and featuring art by Sissy Emmons and David Hobizal, it’s a massive endeavor of spacey, beautiful imagery (think Japanese woodprints if they were done in the year 2245) that marries beautifully with the band’s grandiose sound. With even more videos promised for future months, we wonder why they waited so long in the first place?

Explosions in the Sky are on tour this fall (dates below). Their latest LP, Take Care, Take Care, Take Care, is available now.
