Considering they're called The Academic. First let's have a brief history class on the lads from Mullingar: Debut EP Released 2015 – 'Loose Friends' - People start to take notice. Debut Album Released 2018 – 'Tales From The Backseat 'reached No.1 in the official album chart Top 50 on the US Billboard Alternative Chart and No.22 in the UK Official Chart. 3 Choice Prize Nominations – Bear Claws, Different and Album of The Year Sold Out Irish shows at Iveagh Gardens, Live At The Marquee. Opened for Twenty One Pilots, The Strokes, Catfish and The Bottlemen. Smash hit songs like 'Bear Claws', 'Fake ID' and 'Superlike' led Clash magazine to say they don't write songs they write anthems. And breathe. There's a LOT to take in! They've been busy boys for the last few years. (We'll have a test later in the year when we all get back into school.) For now: Ahead of their return to the Heineken Big Top Galway in July (gig still on at time of publishing) Craig and Matty sat down with TodayFM's Fergal D'Arcy. They tell Fergal about falling back in love with the guitar, How a rip across America in a cranky van made them as a band, how excited they are to release new music this year and loads more. Plus, you will never guess in which class the two lads met in school. They've also put something up for their fans who are self isolating because of Covid-19 Making the most of self-isolating by listening to more music! We’ve set up a little ‘Influences’ playlist on our @Spotify full of tunes we’ve been listening to and been inspired by over the years. Listen here: — The Academic (@TheAcademic) March 20, 2020
