August 16 street date. In 2000, Explosions In The Sky recorded their first album, "How Strange, Innocence", over the course of two days, and made 300 CD-R copies to sell at shows and give to friends in their hometown of Austin, TX. Following their third album, "The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place", the band released a single vinyl pressing of "How Strange, Innocence" as the debut release on a friend's short-lived local imprint, Ruined Potential Records. Sold exclusively on a 2004 North American tour, the sole pressing of 300 sold out immediately, quickly becoming an urban legend for fans. Now, in honor of the Explosions In The Sky's 20th anniversary, we are delighted to bring this treasured document of the band's humble beginnings back into the world. Remastered and packaged in an incredible full-color, heavyweight triple-gatefold jacket with matte varnish, heavyweight full-color insert, and custom vinyl etching containing the charming story of "How Strange, Innocence" in the band's own words.
