Explosions In The Sky Prepare 'Prince Avalanche' Score

David Gordon Green film receives new soundtrack...
Prince Avalanche

Explosions In The Sky are set to release a new soundtrack for the film 'Prince Avalanche'.

Journalistic cliche alert! Explosions In The Sky have always had a widescreen, cinematic element to their sound. No, really - the band have been soundtrack fodder for at least a decade now.

Scoring 'Friday Night Lights' back in 2004, the band's music has been a staple for soundtrack engineers ever since. Now Explosions In The Sky have agreed to take part in a new project, providing a fresh score for David Gordon Green's film 'Prince Avalanche'.

Close friends with the film maker, the band even suggested that Green use Texas' Bastrop State Park as a backdrop for the sweeping tale. There are touches of Beckett's surreal nature in the work, which has a wry - and deeply Southern - sense of humour running through it.

Recorded in the homes of Explosions In The Sky and collaborator David Wingo, the new score for 'Prince Avalanche' seemingly matched the sparse, a times serene nature of the songwriting.

New track 'Wading' is online now - check it out below.

Explosions In The Sky and David Wingo will release 'Prince Avalanche' via Temporary Residence on August 26th.
