"Dranouter Review School Is Cool"

School Is Cool played for a packed tent on the Dranouter festival. Musically the group made a superior impression. The hit "New Kids In Town" was conceived by group and public as a hymn. We had a fat chunk of this band! - De Morgen (National Newspaper)

"Pukkelpop review School Is Cool"

“ While School Is Cool was on stage we completely forgot to write something down in our notebook, because the show was that fascinating! Doesn’t happen to us every day. School Is Cool did what only big bands like Arcade Fire can do: they created an alternative world on stage.” - De Standaard (National Newspaper)

After winning Belgiums biggest rock contest Humo's Rock Rally 2010, the Antwerp-based quintet played more than 60 festivals in Belgium and Holland last summer including Boomtown, Dranouter, Pukkelpop, Crammerock & Marktrock. Their first single "New Kids In Town" was one of the biggest hits of 2010 (hotshot, in highest rotation and 6 weeks on number 1 in Belgiums biggest alternative hitlist 'De Afrekening' on Studio Brussels).

"In Want Of Something" (hotshot, highest rotation and no. 1 again on 'De Afrekening') was the first single off their forthcoming debut-album, which will be released in Belgium on October 18th, 2011. The album was recorded at Motormusic Studios and produced & mixed by Reinhard Vanbergen (member of Das Pop – former productions: The Hickey Underworld, Drums Are For Parades, Goose,…). The album was to be presented in exclusive avant-première at one of Belgians biggest festivals, Pukkelpop 2011 (Marquee) but due to the unexpected disaster, all shows were cancelled. The pre-releaseshow of the album will be held at two other Belgian festivals, LeffingeLeuren & Pukemarock. The Belgian clubtour starts on the 27th of October at Trix. You can find a complete gig-list here.
