Explosions In The Sky are marking their 20th anniversary by reissuing  two of their classic albums on vinyl, including “lost” album The Rescue.

The Texan instrumental post-rock band will reissue their debut album, How Strange, Innocence, on August 16. It comes in a full colour, heavyweight triple-gatefold jacket with matte varnish, heavyweight full-colour insert, and custom vinyl etching containing the story of How Strange, Innocence in the band’s own words.

On the same day, the band also reissue their “secret” second album, The Rescue. Originally released as a mail-order only CD in 2005, it has never been commercially available since.
