School of Seven Bells have announced the release of their fourth and final album. The only remaining member of the group Alejandra Deheza has revealed the story behind it for Stereogum. Alejandra also shared this beautiful words on their official page.
"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 <3"http://sviib.tumblr.com/post/132157416770/friends-benjamin-and-i-wrote-this-record-during
