School Of Seven Bells Are Now Vagrant
Benjamin Curtis and sisters Alejandra and Claudia Deheza formed School of Seven Bells just over three years ago after their previous bands (Secret Machines and On!Air!Library!) toured together. The group signed to Ghostly International in early 2008 and released Alpinisms on October 28.
"When the three of us and the Ghostly guys met with Vagrant, we knew it was the right fit for all of us," explained Curtis. "We feel really lucky that we've had the success we've had so far with our music, but it seems like there are a lot of people out there who might still have a place for this music in their lives and I hope they get the chance. "
School of Seven Bells kick off their first North American headlining tour on Friday, September 25 at Johnny Brenda's in Philadelphia, PA with Magic Wands providing main support on the headlining dates.
"We're looking forward to finally presenting a SVIIB show in a context that we have more control over," adds Curtis. "Our songs feel better when they have a little space around each other to breath and having time to transition from one mood into another is really going to set this tour above everything we've done before."
The tour routes the band to Austin, Texas on Friday, October 2 for a performance at the Austin City Limits Festival. School of Seven Bells are set to end the tour with a hometown show at Webster Hall during CMJ Music Marathon on October 23.
