English Teacher, is the UK band comprised of Lily Fontaine, Douglas Frost, Nicholas Eden, and Lewis Whiting. Today, the quartet have announced a North American tour in support of their debut album, This Could Be Texas, available April 12th via Island Records. The run of dates includes stops in Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Washington, DC.

This Could Be Texas, was produced and mixed by Marta Salogni (black midi, Depeche Mode, Björk) and represents the four songwriters’ sonic journeys thus far, with some tracks written at university in 2016-2019’s post-nest-fleeing nostalgia and others in the weeks before entering the studio. The album explores far-ranging themes including social issues, struggling to belong, mental health and science fiction. On several songs, Fontaine reflects on growing up as a mixed-race individual in a place “where many didn’t have understanding or even tolerance towards people who are different,” which only became more evident as she gained adulthood in the era of the Brexit referendum. “Sonically and lyrically, the album is about not being quite like one thing, nor quite like another,” Fontaine says, “existing in that space between being assigned a choice and completing it where anything is possible.”

English Teacher has toured with Parquet Courts and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, sold out all of their UK and EU headline dates as well as their debut New York City show at Elsewhere in Brooklyn.
