Tegan and Sara helped blaze the trail for what we know as indie pop, and now the sisters will dig into both their careers and their personal lives in a new co-written memoir, High School. Described in a press release as an “origin story,” the memoir will find the pair alternating chapters to provide their distinct points of view on topics such as music, drugs, love, and friendship.

“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,” Tegan and Sara said in a statement. “Writing High School gives us the opportunity to tell the intricate stories that shaped our relationship as sisters, musicians, and queer girls.”


We’re also hoping they talk about their cats because, Christ, have you seen these guys?

The memoir will arrive in the fall of 2019 via MCD, a division of Farrar, Straus & Giroux, alongside Simon & Schuster Canada and Virago in the United Kingdom. As they prepare for its release, the pair will retreat to the studio, where they’ll begin work on their ninth studio album.
