Thread: School of Seven Bells

  1. #1

    Default School of Seven Bells

    About to head off on tour with Interpol through to mid-Feb. It might be a long shot, but there could be a possibility of them playing on the back of having toured with Interpol (if the self-annoucement that they're playing is true)?

    I really do hope so, these guys would be a great Sunday afternoon slot on the Outdoor Theater indeed.

    I would love this. New album is really good, but I want to see them at night.

    Now that you mention, they would be astounding at night, or even a late sun set spot leading into night.

    I'm still so hooked on the first album that I have yet to download the second album. Thanks for the heads up, definitely going to grab it now.

    I've seen these guys twice, and after they added a live drummer they became an excellent live band. Perfect for sundown/night in a tent.

    That's distressing news - I saw them a week or two before she left and she seemed totally out of it. Hope they can make the show work without her.

    I saw them at Moogfest 2010 and they put on a great show. Had to skip them for Best Coast/Lewis Black at Roo, but would absolutely see them again. Wish I'd caught them before the sister quit, but they still sound very nice. More energy in their show than the records would indicate. Hope that shit happens.
    I must have looked as if I were a diseased creature. Covered in cigarette cartons like bird shit, smeary colored face, drinking wine out of a pair of sweat pants. A dead baby hung off the side of my head -- crying to get high on smokes and glue.

    Saw them open for Interpol last year.

    I didn't think they were that bad, but they were almost booed off the stage. I felt kinda bad for them...

    Weird how they were overlooked in 2011 despite touring much of the year with Interpol and now they got passed over again despite having a new album.

    They video of them playing Bonnaroo is great.

    It's their fault for not being as good as The Midnight Beast.

    Unhappy Re: School of Seven Bells

    RIP Benjamin Curtis. I thought for sure he would pull through it. Fuck cancer. Too bad they never got a chance to play the festival. They would have been majical in the Mohave.

    School of Seven Bells
    2 hours ago



    Dear friends,

    Last night, Dec. 29th 2013, we lost our friend and brother Benjamin Curtis to his fight against cancer.

    While we had hoped to delay this announcement until a more suitable time when his friends and family could feel better prepared and settled to greet any correspondences from folks attempting to reach out, unfortunately the news has prematurely leaked. So we felt it would be appropriate to at least offer an official acknowledgement from us, in light of all the fans who loved and supported Benjamin and his music.

    We kindly ask that his immediate family, friends & bandmates' privacy be respected during this time, and that instead, any inquires, well wishes, or notes-of-consolation be sent through School of Seven Bells’ management, where it can be shared with them at the suitable time. They can be sent to a special e-mail address here: sviib@wizkidmanagement.com

    If relevant, further information will be made available through the suitable channels in the near future.

    We can’t thank all of you who supported him and his music through the years enough. All of you who attended or participated in the various benefits in and around New York City over the past year since his diagnosis, and of course those who contributed and gave generously to help support him throughout that journey. You made it possible for all of us, and for him, to see how truly loved he was and how many lives he had touched through his music by your gestures. We will all miss this incredibly talented and rare person every day, but we are fortunate enough that he shared with us his music, and that is something that we can keep forever.
