THE ACADEMIC announce December date in Cyprus Avenue
Following on from their triumphant set at Electric Picnic last weekend and in what has been an incredible year for the indie rock quartet from Westmeath, The Academic have just announced a run of dates in Ireland this coming December.
Causing no small amount of fuss wherever they have gone recently and an ever increasing legion of fans, the hotly tipped young band have been making waves ever since the release of their debut EP 'Loose Friends’ late last year which included the smash hit and Choice Music Prize nominated 'Different' and most recent single ‘Mixtape 2003’ which has been receiving significant international support from The New York Times to Radio 1 in the UK and everything in between.
Clocking up the miles touring across the UK and Europe this summer with notable appearances at Reading Festival and the aforementioned Electric Picnic, the band return to Irish shores this December to play Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway.
“Biting indie rock..impossible to dislodge” Clash Music
“Going back in time with modernity, this band definitely stands out as a new pop rock reference” Stereofox
“Some bands have such talent that when you hear their music for the first time, you are instantly hooked. These are the bands you discover early on when they’re playing small clubs before they eventually headline festivals to audiences of 100,000 or more. One of those bands to watch is The Academic” The Revue
“One of Ireland’s most exciting new bands” The Independent
