FILM SCHOOL return with 'Bright to Death', their fifth album and first full-length LP since 2010’s 'Fission'. Recorded over 8 days in November 2017 on the outskirts of Joshua Tree, this luminescent collection of 11 songs is the finest showcase yet for the band’s signature layered sonic tones, psychedelic atmospheres, and seductive melodies. The album gets its title from text on an artwork singer and guitarist Greg Bertens had seen, part of an exhibit by Chinese students on the topic of global warming. “Bright to death” popped into his head as the band was recording in sun-blistered Joshua Tree, and it stuck. In addition to four members of the original lineup, the album features drummer Adam Wade (Shudder to Think, Jawbox) on several songs, and was mixed by Dan Long and mastered by David Gardner.
"...lush, languid beauty, chiming guitars, and widescreen, empyrean atmospherics." BlackBook
'...lovely, laconic dreampop." Brooklyn Vegan
"...a honeyed, unhurried confessional that rolls in on a thick bass line and envelops every ounce of longing in twinkling guitar and washes of reverb." buzzbands.la
«Go Low is another slow-burning gem that unhurriedly builds up to a stormier ending. Bertens' shadowy, drawn out vocals hazily drape over the laidback drum pace, while sparkling guitar chime, starry-synths-notes and cymbals-shimmer add a brighter sheen. As the instrumentation swells in intensity, a searing guitar line soars through the effervescence, adding a hot rock kick to the dreamy atmosphere.» Big Takeover

The darkly-melodic electronic SD act Le Chateau opens the show, with DJ Ian Utero spinning tunes around the bands.
