Members of Explosions in the Sky and Eluvium Announce Second Album as Inventions
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.
