Explosions In The Sky have announced a new studio LP, titled End, along with a fall tour and new song “Ten Billion People.” Due out September 15 via Temporary Residence Ltd., End is the instrumental indie rock band’s first project in over seven years, but they have promised that its title is not indicative of a foreclosure on the group itself.

The band elaborated in a recent press release,“Our starting point was the concept of an ending—death, or the end of a friendship or relationship. Every song comes from a story, or an idea one of us has had that we’ve all expanded on and made its own world. Maybe it’s our nature, but we kept feeling that the album title was ultimately open to a lot more interpretation—the end of a thing or a time can mean a stop, but it can also mean a beginning, and what happens after one thing ends might pale in comparison to what it becomes next.”

Explosions In The Sky will embark on their US and Europe tour in conjunction with the album’s September 15 debut, kicking off the release in Houston, Texas before moving through the US, UK, Denmark, Spain, and more. The band will appear at Franklin Music Hall on September 29. Tickets and more information can be found at WXPN’s Concerts and Events page.
