Winning over the hearts of critics at the LA Times, NPR, USA Today, Billboard,, AOL Spinner and Stereogum, all-female Belgian rock choir sensations Scala & Kolacny Brothers continue their US breakthrough with the release of their full length self-titled debut and a North American tour this spring. The album, out March 15 on ATCO, features imaginative reinterpretations of songs from Radiohead, Kings of Leon, Depeche Mode, Nirvana and others, as well as the three haunting original compositions by Scala & Kolacny Brothers.

After a performance at SXSW, Scala & Kolacny Brothers will kick of their North American tour April 7 in Vancouver, BC. The group will hit major cities across the US and Canada, playing renowned rock venues, such as New York’s Webster Hall and Los Angeles’ El Rey Theater, while also debuting at Coachella on April 15.

Led by pianist/composer Steven Kolacny and his brother, conductor Stijn Kolacny, Scala & Kolacny Brothers “brilliantly haunting” (EW) version of Radiohead’s “Creep” underscored the trailer for ‘The Social Network’ to great acclaim (viewed by 4-million-plus on YouTube alone), and the group has continued to build buzz and fans stateside ever since. The LA Times praises their “sweet songbird attack,” and USA Today raves that their takes on rock classics “Creep” and “Smells Like Teen Spirit” are “even more haunting than the originals.”
