Magnet School Short Info

Magnet School are an American alternative indie rock band from Austin, TX

With a distinct sonic indie style that stands alone in a sea of underground music, Magnet School's unique tunings and approach to songwriting have earned them a place in Texas & Worldwide as a class act. With an EP, an Album, and UK 7" vinyl release under their belt all with stellar reviews, Magnet School have garnered lots of attention and credibility on the Alternative Indie Rock, Dream Pop, & Shoegaze scenes. From being chosen as a Buzzcatcher band by Spin Magazine for their amazing debut album "Tonight we drink...," to touring the UK with key shows in London, Sheffield, and Liverpool - and their first UK 7" single "The Sitch" was a highlight on the sampler disc for the Midem Festival in Cannes, France - they have turned heads in many places around the Globe.

Winning over fans with their energetic, layered wall of sound live shows, Magnet School have shared the stage with such diverse bands as And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, The Life and Times, Future of the Left, Ume, Ultimate Fakebook, Shiner, and I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness.

Magnet School have recently released their new full length album "The Art of Telling the Truth" in Jan 2016 via Shifting Sounds & Sunshine HQ. With the revival of the alt rock & shoegaze scenes, there couldn't be a better time for this album to drop - it's assured to blow doors and minds. Great things ahead for this 4 piece Texas guitar driven outfit.
