Throughout 2012 School of Seven Bells were working on a follow up to the critically acclaimed Ghostory. When producer/guitarist Benjamin Curtis was diagnosed with T-Cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma in 2013 the band took a break. Today, School of Seven Bells is excited to announce plans to release a new album.

School of Seven Bells Announce Official Video for "I Got Knocked Down (But I'll Get Up)"
School of Seven Bells is pleased to announce the official video for the anti-cancer track "I Got Knocked Down (But I'll Get Up)" originally by Joey Ramone. Throughout 2013 producer/guitarist Benjamin Curtis had been courageously combating T-cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. Recorded in it's entirety to his laptop from his hospital bed at Memorial Sloan-Kettering in New York City, 'I Got Knocked Down (But I'll Get Up)' is Benjamin's final recording before passing on December 29, 2013.
"It was a very spontaneous decision to record this track," says Alejandra Deheza. "Benjamin had been talking about the song a lot, and then he just decided he was going to do it. We couldn't record vocals in the hospital, so he actually face-timed with me and his brother while we recorded vocals in the studio. He spearheaded the whole thing on face time, would even tell us which knobs to turn and listen to levels etc. We'd even see nurses in the background from time to time! It was really amazing. But that was Benjamin, and producing was what he did. It was therapeutic and took his mind off being really sick. This song was really important to him and I'm happy we were able to record it."
Directors and long time friends of the group, Toby Halbrooks & Alan Del Rio Ortiz, created a visually stunning piece of which the trailer can be seen below. Revolving around a cross-country road trip stopping in Indio and Joshua Tree, the video celebrates life while displaying its cyclical and inexplicable properties.
The track will be made available for purchase digitally on 6/24 and the full video will be premiering on 6/25 exclusively on CultureCollide.com. Stay tuned for more details and plans from School of Seven Bells coming soon.
