Explosions in the Sky Unveil First-Ever Video, Add Euro Tour Dates

Explosions in the Sky Unveil First-Ever Video, Add Euro Tour Dates

Explosions In The Sky have unveiled the first official music video of the band's 12-year career.

The animated clip for "Last Known Surroundings" from the band's new album Take Care, Take Care, Take Care was recently premiered at Wired.com, where it was described as "a Space-Tripping wonder ... like a celestial love child of the original Tron, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Japanese Art."

Months in the making, "Last Known Surroundings," directed by Ptarmak, a design studio based in Explosions' native Austin, Texas, who utilized illustrations by Sissy Emmons and animation from David Hobizal to create an otherworldly visual interpretation of the epic instrumental track.

Explosions In The Sky have also just announced a new run of overseas dates. Following a series that wraps with three August festivals as well as a September/October North American tour, the new dates begin Nov. 4 in Madrid, Spain, and conclude Nov. 20 in Bristol, England.

The full list of tour dates is below. In the meantime, here's the new video:
