DiS is sorry to say that them Texan makers of graceful twinkling (known to some as the genre post-rock), Explosions In The Sky, have had a spot of bother with planes. This has lead to them postponing their show tonight in Glasgow and tomorrow in Manchester. This is what the band have to say for themselves...
We're sad to say that, on account of some insane and severe storms that have been hammering the eastern seaboard of the US, we have had to cancel our shows in Glasgow and Manchester. We were supposed to leave the US this afternoon but it didn't happen because of the huge amount of air traffic delays. We have a new set of flights scheduled and we have every intention of showing up for the London show.
Both of the missed shows will be rescheduled and all tickets wil be honored. We will let you know any information as to when as soon as we have it.
Anyway, we are truly sorry about this. Please spread the word to anyone you might know who was thinking of attending.
Love and apologies,
Details of new dates will be posted when we have them.
A spokesperson for the aviation industry was not available to comment whether this cancelling of flights was anything to do with the band's seemingly insensitive artwork and moniker post-9/11.
DiScuss: How emo does this make you feel? Are you just gonna sit around listening to their records really loudly instead and sit there wondering why even when you turn it up full it doesn't sound THAT loud?
