The Spook School Announce May 2018 UK Tour



The Spook School Tickets
Following a huge North American tour supporting Diet Cig and their own triumphant sold-out album launch show at Stereo in their hometown of Glasgow earlier this year, THE SPOOK SCHOOL are delighted to announce a run of May 2018 UK headline tour dates and festival appearances.

The band will be joined by hotly-tipped indie pop trio and Alcopop! labelmates Peaness for select dates.

Commenting on their recent US jaunt and return home, the band say: “Touring North America was a wild experience. Meeting so many new people, playing so many new places, and seeing so many people sing our words back to us was pretty surreal. It's super exciting to take that energy back to the UK and start imagining just how fun bringing the new album around our friend's cities will be. We've got so many silly plans, it's going to be a very silly show and we can't wait to show everybody!”

Praise and airplay has been pouring in for Could It Be Different?, which has already been hailed by many as one of the most important indie records of 2018 and seen the band championed as leading lights of the UK queer-pop scene, with support from radio at BBC Radio One, BBC6 Music and Amazing Radio, not to mention a bundle of Spotify playlist additions and a huge swell of coverage at print and online media.

The Spook School are a four piece band from Edinburgh, Scotland. The name is a reference to the Glasgow School. They met whilst attending the University of Edinburgh. Most of the band have previously been involved in live comedy shows, some of which were performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Their music often gets compared to bands off the C86 compilation, such as The Shop Assistants, as well as The Buzzcocks; however the band also lists David Bowie as an influence. Read more on
