Containing the very first transmissions from Explosions In The Sky to the world, the songs on How Strange Innocence were freshly written, painstakingly rehearsed, and anxiously put to tape during a whirlwind two-day recording session with Stephen T. Hall (Sixteen Deluxe) at The Bubble in Austin, TX. But the group evolved quickly, and recorded what would be their breakthrough, the stunning Those Who Tell The Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell The Truth Shall Live Forever, less than one year later. How Strange Innocence was pushed aside in favor of the more accomplished Those Who Tell The Truth as the band's introduction to the rest of the world, seeing no official release beyond 300 CDRs the band produced to sell on the road. Original CDRs fetch over $200 on eBay, the scarce vinyl version nearing $500! This phenomenon was disconcerting to the band and their growing number of fans, which makes us all the more proud to announce this official How Strange Innocence reissue, beautifully remastered with all new artwork.
