Special Explosion // 'To Infinity' Premiere

We've kept this a little hush hush, but the cat is finally out of the bag – Special Explosion has a new album out tomorrow! You can stream 'To Infinity' in full via GoldFlakePaint today, who called it a "detailed and impassioned masterpiece." The album was recorded at Modest Mouse's Ice Cream Party Studio in Portland, OR and sounds nothing short of incredible. Give it a listen – it's sure to make it to those end of year lists.
