Explosions in the Sky Unveils new Video

Explosions in the Sky Unveils Video Documenting Artwork via The Creator's Project.

Ahead of Explosions In The Sky’s forthcoming release The Wilderness, out April 1st via Temporary Residence Ltd, the band has teamed up with The Creators Project to premiere a video capturing renowned artist Jacob van Loon and his process of creating the album artwork. Featuring an exclusive score based on The Wilderness track “The Ecstatics,” the short film showcases gently brush-stroked watercolor and painstakingly detailed layers of color through time-lapse. The movie was directed by Jeremy Bird and Jeremy deVine (founder of the band’s longtime label Temporary Residence Ltd), and filmed by Jacob van Loon.

Explosions In The Sky’s guitarist Mark T. Smith spoke about working with van Loon:

“When we were looking for artwork for our record, we became immediately enthralled with Jacob van Loon’s stuff. His existing artwork had all those elements we wanted from the concept of the record: a terror, a beauty, a structure, an abstraction, a wildness… but his resulting artwork was largely a surprise to us. It came as a finished piece and we were blown away.”
