Explosions in the Sky to Embark on ‘The End Tour’ This Fall

Explosions Hit the Road

Post-rock instrumental act map out first North American gigs since 2019

Post-rock instrumental act Explosions in the Sky will embark on their first North American tour since 2019 this fall.

Dubbed The End Tour, the trek kicks off Sept. 15 in Houston and moves its way eastward over the span of three weeks, concluding Oct. 5 at New York’s Kings Theatre. The following month, the band will venture to Europe for a brief 11-date trek.

The mysterious band didn’t elaborate on the meaning of the tour’s name, whether it’s “the end” of the road for them or the start of the promotional trail for their first studio album (and non-soundtrack) since 2016’s Wilderness.

Explosions in the Sky last released their score for the PBS documentary Big Bend: The Wild Frontier of Texas in 2021.
