Following their critically acclaimed new album End, and sold-out international tours last year, Explosions in the Sky will return to Brisbane in May as part of Open Season.

Long renowned for their cathartic and euphoric live shows, the dates mark the band’s first Australian appearance since their 2017 run, which saw them perform two sold-out headline shows at Sydney Opera House.

Their latest full-length release End is arguably the grandest Explosions In The Sky album to date - melding the quiet restraint and crushing weight of their early recordings with the aural exploration and ornate experimentation of their later works all the while incorporating skills and insights gleaned from their increasingly deep film and television scoring experiences. While End was inspired by darkness, it became a loud, dramatic, wild rumination on life and death.

Over nearly 25 years of being a band Explosions In The Sky have achieved remarkable critical and commercial success while making an especially non-commercial style of music - having sold nearly two million albums worldwide and scored five major motion pictures to date. They’ve become the sound of modern sports films, documentaries and television series - due largely to their genre-defining Friday Night Lights score - and have found a diverse array of major artists as fans as well, having been invited to tour with Nine Inch Nails, The Smashing Pumpkins, The Flaming Lips, Death Cab for Cutie, and many others.

This event is presented as part of Open Season - a curated program of music and art running from May to July 2024. Open Season has been supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland’s QASP program, the Strategic Partnerships Fund, and through Live Music Australia – an Australian Government initiative.
