The Spook School Short Info

Formed in 2012, The Spook School are a Queer Transgender Pop-Punk band from Edinburgh, Scotland. Fun and empowering they are brim full of noisy, tuneful and triumphant queer pop songs about identity, sexuality and being awesome. They were the subject of a Rolling Stone documentary spending time with Laura Jane Grace from Against Me! Their new album, Try To Be Hopeful, released on Fortuna POP!, is the sound of a band growing up, embracing their identities, and taking charge at the world. But amidst the fight for a place in society for everyone, there’s still time for love, friendship, and fun. With their bold, fizzy and electrifying anthems, The Spook School are the shot of optimism we’ve been hoping for.
