Hear the sledges with the bells, silver bells! School of Seven Bells announce tourdates, album out July 13

Hear the sledges with the bells, silver bells! School of Seven Bells announce tourdates, album out July 13

It’s about time we had some attractive twin vocalists in the limelight that aren’t Tegan & Sara. With the addition of Benjamin Curtis, sisters Alejandra and Claudia Deheza make up School of Seven Bells (one part former Secret Machines, latter two parts On!Air!Library!), the dream pop band inspired by shoegazers and Cocteau Twins and inspiring recitations everywhere of Poe’s “The Bells.” The follow-up to their 2008 debut Alpinisms (TMT Review), called Disconnect from Desire, is out July 13 from Vagrant Records/Ghostly International, and handbell choirs are ringing out the news across the country during the morning practice before church. With so many bells a-ringin’, what else could School of Seven Bells do but tour North America?
