Published Jan 13, 2015Last year, Explosions in the Sky member Mark T. Smith teamed up with longtime touring- and labelmate Matthew Cooper (of Eluvium) to form Inventions, releasing their self-titled debut album. Though a full year hasn't even passed since its release, they've already announced a follow-up effort.
Called Maze of Woods, the new LP features eight new songs from the duo. A press release explains that the album was inspired by a section from Denis Johnson's Train Dreams novella.
The album will arrive on March 17 through Temporary Residence. In addition, its digital release will also come with a three-song remix EP featuring contributions from the Field, Leyland Kirby and A Winged Victory for the Sullen.
Check out the tracklisting for Maze of Woods below, along with a stream of the album's "Springworlds."
In addition to this project, Smith is busy with his other band Explosions in the Sky, who just announced that they're working on a new album.
