Bangor Grammer School, the all-boy voluntary school in Northern Ireland, is where the seeds of Two Door Cinema Club were planted. Alex Trimble, Kevin Baird and Sam Halliday, who had mutual admirations with [lastfm]At The Drive In[/lastfm], [lastfm]The Mars Volta [/lastfm]and[lastfm] Biffy Clyro[/lastfm], began sharing their musical ideas in Sam’s garage.[pullquote quote="We met Daniel Glass and we just realized there was no point in meeting anyone else, really." credit="Alex Trimble on signing with Glassnote Records"] Their debut album was released in the States on Glassnote Records on April 27. The same day they stopped by our studio, they played that night at The Bowery Ballroom to an ecstatic, filled room.
After a tour of the U.K. in September, the band will head back to the U.S. for some shows in October and November.
