School of Seven Bells - SVIIB  [Album]
Release / WEB
MP3 / 320
In December of 2013, School of Seven Bells' Benjamin Curtis passed away after a battle with T-cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. Last year, Curtis' bandmate, Alejandra Deheza, said she was working to complete a new album, featuring parts Curtis had recorded when he was alive. Today, the band updated their website to announce SVIIB, a new album due February 2016. Below, watch a short teaser that includes a snippet of music.
On the website, Deheza wrote a note about the record, calling it "a love letter from start to finish." She said it originates from recordings made in the summer of 2012.
Benjamin and I wrote this record during a tour break in the summer of 2012. I can easily say that it was one of the most creative and inspired summers of our lives. What followed was the most tragic, soul shaking tidal wave that life could deliver, but even that wouldn't stop the vision for this record from being realized. This is a love letter from start to finish. It's the story of us starting from that first day we met in 2004, and that's the story of School of Seven Bells. So much love to all of you. Thank you for being a constant light in our lives.
This record is for you.
