on August 01, 2013, 5:12pm


Before Prince Avalanche has even hit theaters, Explosions in the Sky and David Wingo have announced work on a second film score for director David Gordon Green. In an interview with HitFix, Wingo and Explosions drummer Chris Hrasky said the collective will spend “the end of the year diving into” the score for Green’s follow-up to Avalanche, entitled Manglehorn.

Beginning production this fall, with a script by Paul Logan (Be Comfortable, Creature), the film stars Al Pacino as A.J. Manglehorn, an “eccentric man who tries to come to terms with a past crime that cost him the love of his life.” Explosions and Wingo will begin pre-production this summer while on the road opening for Nine Inch Nails’ comeback tour.

Following both the tour and the soundtrack, Hrasky added the band would begin recording their follow-up to 2011’s Take Care, Take Care, Take Care in early 2014.

The Prince Avalanche score hits shelves on August 8th via Temporary Residence Ltd. Take a listen to the 15-track effort now at Starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch as mis-matched highway workers, Prince Avalanche hits theaters on August 9th.
