The Spook School Announce US Tour Dates

21st November 2017

Glasgow indie-pop quartet The Spook School are today pleased to share‘Less Than Perfect’, the second single and video from their eagerly anticipated third album Could It Be Different?, due for release on 26th January 2018 on Slumberland Records (US) and Alcopop! Records (UK).

Watch and share ‘Less Than Perfect’ here:

The track was premiered with Stereogum yesterday, who said of the single: “[Less Than Perfect] is a confident-sounding song about feeling disappointed when your reality doesn’t really measure up to the grand expectations you had for what adulthood would have in store. But in typical Spook School fashion, they take that let-down in their stride: “It’s alright now/ Not what you hoped but that’s OK/ Teenage hopes are never less than perfect anyway,” goes the hook. The new song comes attached to a video that sees the four bandmates having fun with letting things play out in reverse.”

The band have also announced a full North American tour in early 2018 supporting Diet Cig (see full list of dates below) which sees them joining Great Grandpa and Lala Lala for a lengthy run of dates.
