BIOGRAPHY


"None could doubt the ascendancy of My Education after the success of Sunrise, their last album, composed of pieces from their original score for F.W. Murnau's 1927 silent masterpiece "Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans". Having perfected the Sunrise material with live film performances over the last two years that sold out shows across the USA, My Education has now moved on to the most dramatic and heaviest expressions of their career.

A Drink for All My Friends is released on Golden Antenna in Europe on Sept. 28th and on Haute Magie in the USA on Oct. 4th. Since forming in 1999, the band's membership has expanded and contracted while the sonic landscapes have grown with each release. My Education has released 5 full-length albums, several singles, compilation appearances, and a 12" vinyl collaboration with avant-hip hop duo Dalek. Recordings have been remixed by members of bands Kinski, Pelican, the Red Sparowes and Dalek. Their previous albums include 5 Popes, Italian, Moody Dipper, and Bad Vibrations.

My Education have toured the US regularly since 2001; done regional tours with both Maserati and the Red Sparowes, and shared the stage with A Place to Bury Strangers, Kinski, Bardo Pond, Dalek, The Black Angels, The Sea and Cake, Warpaint, Alexander Hacke/Algis Kizys duo, The Soundtrack of Our Lives, This Will Destroy You, Sleepy Sun, White Denim, Radar Bros., Eluvium, Sian Alice Group, Don Caballero, Trans AM and many others. They recently completed a three week tour of Europe playing shows in France, Germany, Holland, Czech Republic, Austria and Slovenia.

In June 2010 the band completed a series of improvisational recordings with Salt Lake City ensemble Theta Naught that were released April 2011 on Differential Records. "SoundMass" performances at SXSW and Austin Psych Fest were greeted with wild acclaim, and a Daytrotter SoundMass session was released in July 2011. Vinyl of this release is brand new and out now - more SoundMass performances are currently being scheduled to promote the vinyl and new recordings are also in the works. My Education's collaboration with the Noble Motion dance company premiered with three sold out shows in June 2011 at the Austin Ballet. A new limited edition CD of Sunrise remixes is out now on Reverb Worship."
