The album, produced by band member Benjamin Curtis and mixed by Jack Joseph Puig, was recorded in the band's home studio and mixed in Los Angeles at Ocean Way Recording.

School of Seven Bells, composed of Benjamin Curtis (formerly of Secret Machines) and identical twins Alejandra and Claudia Deheza, released their debut album "Alpinisms" in 2008. Paste Magazine called it "a psychedelic excursion anchored by beautiful, winding melodies and entrancing synth backdrops as bright and buoyant as a wall of clouds." They have also been featured in the pages of Rolling Stone, Spin, Details, the NME and others. The band has since toured with Blonde Redhead and Bat For Lashes, among others.

Tour dates for School of Seven Bells, more to be announced:
