Austin’s Explosions in the Sky have been making sweeping, intense post-rock for two whole decades and they are ready to celebrate. The band best known to the world outside of GY!BE bootleggers for the soundtrack to Friday Night Lights will hit the road this fall in celebration of the 20-year milestone.

The group announced the trek in a tweet, sharing dates and earnestly hoping that folks will turn up:

“Hi everyone, our band turns 20 years old this year and to celebrate we’re playing some shows this Fall,” they wrote. “We hope to see some of you out there. And thanks so much for sticking with us for so long. We truly appreciate it.”

The tour starts on September 11 at Mesa, AZ’s Arts Center before a run up the West Coast, culminating in a show in Sacramento at the Crest Theater. The band turns east for Salt Lake City, Denver and Boulder before a southward jag that takes them through Taos’ Mesa Brewing Amphitheater and Knoxville’s The Mill & Mine.

October starts off with an East Coast leg including a stop at NYC’s Knockdown Center before the band brings the tour to a close with a string of Midwestern dates. The anniversary celebration closes out with a show at the Criterion Theater in Oklahoma City on October 24.

Tickets are on sale now; take a look at the dates below.
