Five years removed from their 2011 album Take Care, Take Care, Take Care, Texan post-rock outfit Explosions in the Sky have announced a new album. EITS will release The Wilderness on April 1 via Temporary Residence. The full The Wilderness tracklist is below. EITS also shared the album's first single "Disintegration Anxiety" with the news.
"Disintegration Anxiety" begins with some warbled electronic tones--perhaps reverse loops or tones created with an Electro Harmonix POG2--that bring to mind EITS' fellow post-rockers Battles. Intricate bass fingerings step in before they're joined with staccato guitar. The track builds in typical EITS fashion, with swells and lulls amounting to a climactic end near the four minute mark.
