My Education New Album, Tour Dates

Austin outfit My Education will be releasing a new album in June to the delight of Mono, Mogwai and Explosions in the Sky fans everywhere (read: if you like those bands, you’ll love My Education!). This purely instrumental group came together in 1999, self-releasing their debut album 5 Popes, which hit #1 on many college radio stations in the US and sold out its first pressing in December 2003. The album was re-released by Thirty Ghosts Records the next month and UK label Jonathan Whiskey released a 7″ single for “Concentration Waltz.”

In 2005, Thirty Ghosts released the band’s follow-up album, Italian, receiving acclaim from Rolling Stone Senior Editor David Fricke. Now, My Education will release their third effort, an EP/remix record titled Moody Dipper. The new EP saw the departure of bassist Eric Gibbons, who is moving on to pursue a career in fine art. In his place is new bassist Scott Telles and vibraphonist Sarah Norris, joining original member Brian Purington (guitar) as well as Chris Haxstie (guitar), Chris Stelly (drums), James Alexander (viola) and Kirk Laktas (piano) .

In May 2007, My Education recorded the full-length follow-up to Italian, entitled Bad Vibrations. The album was completed in July and is slated for release June 10th, 2008 on Portland, OR imprint Strange Attractors Audio House with a full US tour (dates below) to follow.
