Watch Explosions in the Sky’s Thunderous ‘Colbert’ Performance
Explosions in the Sky delivered a powerful performance of their devastating new song, “Disintegration Anxiety” on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Monday.
The track finds the Texas instrumental rock outfit at their sprawling, cinematic best. The song begins with a simple vamp centered around high-wire guitar picking and proceeds to rise and recede deftly until reaching a final anthemic, emotional blowout.
“Disintegration Anxiety” was the first single off Explosions in the Sky’s new album, The Wilderness, which arrived April 1st via Temporary Residence Ltd. The album was produced by John Congleton and marked the group’s first non-soundtrack project since 2011’s Take Care, Take Care, Take Care.
Explosions in the Sky also have a hefty tour itinerary planned in support of The Wilderness. Along with several international treks, the group will embark on two North American legs, the first starting May 2nd in Tucson, Arizona and the second August 21st in Houston, Texas.
