Vagrant Records announced today that they are partnering with Brooklyn-based School of Seven Bells and their Ghostly International imprint to re-release the trio’s 2008 debut album, Alpinisms on July 14. Guitarist Benjamin Curtis, formerly of Secret Machines, said of the new arrangement, “When the three of us (Curtis, sisters Alejandra and Claudia Deheza) and the Ghostly guys met with Vagrant, we knew it was the right fit for all of us. We feel really lucky that we’ve had the success we’ve had so far with our music, but it seems like there are a lot of people out there who might still have a place for this music in their lives and I hope they get the chance.”

The band will kick off their first headlining tour of the US on September 25 with Magic Wands along for support.
