Tegan and Sara to tell ‘intricate stories’ of their past in new memoir, ‘High School’

The coming-of-age book is arriving next year

Tegan and Sara have announced a memoir called High School, which is set for release in 2019.

The book will be formatted in chapters, which alternate between the duo’s individual points of view. It will arrive next year on September 24 via Simon & Schuster Canada and Virago in the UK.

In a press release, it’s said that the book will track the sisters’ personal experiences – from growing up, through to becoming musicians and LGBTQ role models.

Tegan and Sara say of the project: “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 20 years answering those complicated questions with simple answers. Writing High School gives us the opportunity to tell the intricate stories that shaped our relationship as sisters, musicians, and queer girls.”

Last year, Tegan Quin spoke out to NME about the pitfalls of being a young person, and the steps to seek if you suffer from mental health issues.

2017 also saw the group celebrate the 10th anniversary of their 2007 album, ‘The Con’. A new version of the LP called ‘The Con X’ saw the likes of GrimesChvrchesParamore‘s Hayley Williams, Bleachers, and Cyndi Lauper contribute covers from the original record.

Earlier this year, two of Tegan and Sara’s custom, hand-painted guitars were stolen while they were in LA.
