SCHOOL OF NIGHT’S SELF-TITLED EP OUT OCTOBER 15 ON MINUS GREEN RECORDS & TRANSGRESSIVE RECORDS

SOLO PROJECT FROM DARBY CICCI (THE ANTLERS)

“LYING” PREMIERES AT STEREOGUM

Darby Cicci, multi-instrumentalist and producer of critically acclaimed band The Antlers, is set for the debut of his solo project School of Night. The group’s self-titled EP is out October 15 in the U.S. via Minus Green Records and October 14 in the rest of the world on Transgressive Records. Stereogum is premiering the album’s lead track, “Lying“. The album is available for pre-order via iTunes.

The School of Night EP was written, recorded and produced between 2011-2012 mostly during Cicci’s brief breaks from recording and touring with The Antlers. “I would go to my studio, play synths in the dark, collect sounds that I love and try to build little worlds I could just dissolve into and explore,” Cicci notes of the writing and recording process. “At first it was mostly playtime and I wasn’t planning on releasing it, but if I’ve learned anything from my experiences, it’s that the more you open up and share about yourself, the more you’ll learn.”

Cicci is best known as multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer for The Antlers since the group’s formation in 2007. Cicci produced The Antlers’ last two critically acclaimed albums, Burst Apart (2011) and Undersea (2012), as well as records for Porcelain Raft and Yellow Ostrich. He has also made countless remixes for artists including Neon Indian, PVT and Freelance Whales.
