Why The New "Film School" Album Is Important

Film School Live, 2008It's rare to see an "opening band" worth talking about.  In my life of concerts, the only other time when an opening band has blown me away was Yo La Tengo when they opened up for Teenage Fanclub back in 1993.  Film School opened up for Swervedriver on their reunion tour back in 2008 and were absolutely brilliant, they had that perfect mixture of shoegaze/pop and it wasn't a refreshing new sound by any means, but it was so much fun to listen to.

At the time they were on tour supporting their 3rd album, "Hideout".  Since then they've been in the studio working on their follow up, "Fission".  It's set for a July 20th release date and I expect tour dates to follow.

Go give them a listen over at Amazon, you won't be disappointed.

Swervedriver Plan More Gigs, Film School Supports

They've been away for so long, but alt-rockers Swervedriver are making up for their absence with the addition of even more reunion tour dates, including a run of shows at the end of May with Film School. However, the current list of Swervedriver dates still doesn't quite match the original promise of a full-blown world tour, so let's hope the band has a few shows still stuck in its flannel sleeves. - Source
