Austin, Texas-based My Education formed in 1999 and have released eight full-length albums. The band's last album, Schiphol, was produced by Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Trail of Dead, Patty Griffin etc.) at Public HiFi studios in Austin.
The band is currently in the final phases of preparing their new LP “Emka” for release on somewherecold records. It is a trans-hemispheral collaboration that culminated in a week of ecstatic sessions at the famed Sonic Ranch studios in Tornillo, TX with Charles Godfrey (Swans, Trail of Dead, etc.).
“Emka” reflects the terrors of living in a world shaped by the last world war and the cold war that followed it.
My Education regularly tours the US and did 19 shows in 20 days in Europe in 2013. They have shared the stage with A Place to Bury Strangers, Kinski, Bardo Pond, Dalek, The Black Angels, The Sea and Cake, Warpaint, Alexander Hacke/Algis Kizys duo, the Psychedelic Furs, The Soundtrack of Our Lives, This Will Destroy You, Sleepy Sun, White Denim and too many others to name here. North Americans will soon see them on tour with Acid Mothers Temple and the Melting Paraiso UFO in 2023.
