Benjamin Curtis of School of Seven Bells passed away in December of 2013. Almost two years later, remaining band-member Alejandra Deheza has announced a new album called SVIIB, featuring parts written and recorded by the pair in 2012. There are snippets of new music in the teaser (below) for the album, due in February 2016.

Deheza shared this statement via the band's website explaining the origins of the new album:

Friends,

Benjamin and I wrote this record during a tour break in the summer of 2012. I can easily say that it was one of the most creative and inspired summers of our lives. What followed was the most tragic, soul shaking tidal wave that life could deliver, but even that wouldn't stop the vision for this record from being realized. This is a love letter from start to finish. It's the story of us starting from that first day we met in 2004, and that's the story of School of Seven Bells. So much love to all of you. Thank you for being a constant light in our lives.

This record is for you.

-Alejandra
