THE SCHOOL: Announce first US tour [31 May-13 June]
Welsh band THE SCHOOL bring their fizzy orchestral pop to the USA for the first time this summer, playing NYC Popfest on 30th May followed by 9 shows in June.
Part of the legendary Elefant Records family, their debut album 'Loveless Unbeliever' appeared in over 70 'best of 2010' lists.
Second album 'Reading Too Much Into Things Like Everything' was released last year which includes the single 'Never Thought I'd See The Day'. Produced by David Wrench
(Bat For Lashes, Caribou, Herman Dune, Euros Childs) it's a 12-track 29-minute record crammed with classic pop songs about love and loss. Exploring a wider range of influences, you'll hear THE RONETTES then THE RAMONES, FRANCOISE HARDY then a hint of MADNESS and a nod to THE SUPREMES - but always with The School's modern twist and sugar sweet vocals.
Following the US tour, the band will return to the studio to record their third LP for Elefant Records, to be released in early 2014.
