Film School

FILM SCHOOL is led by founder Greg Bertens and formed in 1998. Undoubtedly they rock – hungry unrestrained guitars and loud driven drumbeats – but it is a sound as brooding, atmospheric and self-contained, as it is explosive and infectious. It is a sound that makes them memorable as well as unique and unequalled amongst their contemporaries, yet simultaneously it seems somehow familiar. It is the recalling of an early eighties alternative spirit mixed with an unprecedented fervent and conviction.

Their debut album was released in 2001, followed by two releases on Beggars Banquet; a self-titled album in 2006 and Hideout in 2007. They have released two more full-length albums since, most recently Bright To Death in 2018.
