Explosions In The Sky Score A Film

either-wayPrince Avalanche is a remake of the Icelandic movie, Either Way, about two men who spend a summer away from civilization by painting traffic lines on a highway in Texas. The newest film, from David Gordon Green, stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, as Rudd’s looney brother-in-law.

Post-rock geniuses, Explosions in the Sky have teamed up with David Wingo (of Ola Podrida) to score this movie. Wingo has scored many other films directed by Green including, Snow Angels, The Sitter and George Washington. Being a band based out of Texas and knowing the landscape well, drummer Chris Hrasky of Explosions suggested Texas’ Bastrop State Park to be the location of the film. The band has worked with Green in the past when he used their song “The Moon Is Down” in his film, All The Real Girls back in 2003.

Explosions in the Sky started receiving media attention after the release of their 2000 debut album, How Strange, Innocent. Clearly, their style of ambient rock has garnered a large fan base because since their first record, the band has released five more studio albums and their music has been used in multiple TV shows and movies such as One Tree Hill, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and The Kite Runner. The band is also heavily featured in both the Friday Night Lights movie and TV show.

The soundtrack for Prince Avalanche, containing 15 songs, will be out August 6th, while the movie will be out in theaters, iTunes and On Demand three days later. The track list for the album, released through Temporary Residence Limited, is as follows:

1. “Fires”
2. “Theme From Prince Avalanche”
3. “Dear Madison
4. “Passing Time”
5. “Rain”
6. “Alone Time”
7. “Hello, Is This Your House?”
8. “Can’t We Just Listen to the Silence”
9. “Wading”
10. “Dear Alvin”
11. “The Lines on the Road That Lead You Back Home”
12. “An Old Peasant Like Me”
13. “Join Me on My Avalanche”
14. “The Adventures of Alvin and Lance”
15. “Send Off”
