HighSchool announce new album Accelerator

HighSchool, have announced their new album Accelerator, will drop on April 19th via PIAS. Ahead of the EP’s release, they have shared single and video “Doesn’t Matter.” Accelerator was Produced by Finn Billingham, mixed by Philippe Weiss (Earl Sweatshirt, Nas, Drake) and mastered by Blur and Depeche Mode producer Ben Hillier. Highschool includes Rory Trobbiani and Luke Scott

Directed by Henry Gosper and self-produced by the band, the accompanying “Doesn’t Matter” video provides yet another surreal, distorted glimpse into HighSchool’s aesthetic universe. They share that “The video was shot over two days at three separate locations in and around the outskirts of Melbourne. We were trying to capture a modern Southern Gothic atmosphere with an Australian flair, taking inspiration from classic Australian Gothic literature and film as well as crime stoppers adverts and the T.V. programs like Highway Patrol.”

The announcement of their second EP comes right as the band prepare to kick off their headline Australian tour. Following that, they will then jet off for a headline tour of Japan, followed by their appearance at SXSW in Austin, TX, further USA tours supporting Provoker and zzzahara, and ending with a headline tour to mark their return to the UK/ Europe.

After relocating to London, HighSchool have joined the likes of Wet Leg, CHVRCHES, NewDad and Mandy, Indiana on tour before playing a summer of UK festivals including All Points East, End of the Road, The Great Escape, Manchester Pysch Festival, Sea Change, Standon Calling and Visions. The autumn brought their first headline shows, both in the UK and across Europe, promoting not only their EP but also their anthemic track “Only a Dream”, released as a limited 7” on Dan Carey’s ever-great Speedy Wunderground label.
