Published Jan 18, 2012Back in November, we learned that dreamy New York electro-pop unit School of Seven Bells would be delivering a their self-described "sensual and spontaneous" third album Ghostory in February, and we now know the group will be taking the new tunes out on the road shortly thereafter.
The troupe will play a couple hometown gigs to coincide with the album's February 28 release date, but their North American tour will kick off just over a month later in Philadelphia on April 4. While the bulk of the jaunt, which features support from Exitmusic, finds School of Seven Bells making their way across the U.S., they'll show us Canucks a little love. Canadian stops are scheduled for Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto.
You can check out the tour schedule, as well as a stream for album track "Lafaye," below.
As previously reported, Ghostory drops via Vagrant/Ghostly International on February 28.
