Indie-Pop duo Tegan and Sara announced today (December 11th) that they will release a memoir titled High School on September 24th, of next year.
“‘How did you start your band? When did you know that you were gay? What were you like before Tegan and Sara?’ We have spent twenty years answering those complicated questions with simple answers,” the singers said in a joint statement. “Writing High School gives us the opportunity to tell the intricate stories that shaped our relationship as sisters, musicians, and queer girls.”
The publication will feature alternating chapters from the Quin twins, who grew up in the Alberta province of Canada, giving each of them an equal stake in the story-telling of becoming world-famous musicians and LGBTQ icons. “Anyone who’s paid attention to Tegan and Sara’s lyrics already knows what sensitive and engaging storytellers they are,” MCD publisher Sean McDonald said. “For me, the real thrill of High School is how naturally that translates to the page…” he continued.
