Austin, Texas-based My Education formed in 1999 and have released eight full-length albums. The band's last album, Schiphol, was produced by Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Trail of Dead, Patty Griffin etc.) at Public HiFi studios in Austin.

The band's new LP "EMKA" was released on somewherecold records on October 14th, 2022. It is a trans-hemispheric collaboration that culminated in a week of ecstatic sessions at the famed Sonic Ranch studios in Tornillo, TX with Charles Godfrey (Swans, Trail of Dead, etc.) and mastered by Harris Newman (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Eluvium, Besnard Lakes) at Grey Market Mastering.

"EMKA" reflects the terrors of living in a world shaped by the last world war and the cold war that followed it.

My Education regularly tours the US and did 19 shows in 20 days in Europe in 2013. They have shared the stage with A Place to Bury Strangers, Kinski, Bardo Pond, Dalek, The Black Angels, The Sea and Cake, Warpaint, Alexander Hacke/Algis Kizys duo, the Psychedelic Furs, The Soundtrack of Our Lives, This Will Destroy You, and many more. North Americans will soon see them on tour with Acid Mothers Temple and the Melting Paraiso UFO in 2023.
