Experimental indie-pop group SCHOOL OF SEVEN BELLS will embark on a headlining North American tour this fall. Beginning on September 9th in Brooklyn, NY, the tour sees the band traveling across the US and Canada, wrapping up in Philadelphia on October 22nd. Opening the tour is electronica-harp playing Active Child. Full tour dates below.

The band will be touring in support of their forthcoming album Disconnect from Desire, which is slated for a July 13th release on Vagrant Records/Ghostly International. The album, produced by band member Benjamin Curtis and mixed by Jack Joseph Puig, was recorded in the band’s home studio and mixed in Los Angeles at Ocean Way Recording. Disconnect from Desire is a tremendous leap forward for the band musically, evident in all elements of their intricate and multi-layered sound. Further, the unique experience of playing live allowed them to step out of their sometimes-insular creative process, and to discover and explore a newfound connectivity with listeners. This connection to the external world is reflected throughout the new album and indicative of the trio’s development.

SCHOOL OF SEVEN BELLS, composed of Benjamin Curtis (formerly of Secret Machines) and identical twins Alejandra and Claudia Deheza, (formerly of On!Air!Library!) released their debut album Alpinisms in 2008. Paste Magazine called it “a psychedelic excursion anchored by beautiful, winding melodies and entrancing synth backdrops as bright and buoyant as a wall of clouds.” They have also been featured in the pages of Rolling Stone, Spin, Details, the NME and others. The band has since toured with Blonde Redhead and Bat For Lashes, among others.
