The Academic's hotly anticipated debut album called 'Tales From The Backseat' was released in early 2018. Recorded between Los Angeles and London with producer Tim Pagnotta (Dreamcar, Walk The Moon, Saint Motel), 'Tales From The Backseat' offers some of The Academic's most accomplished songwriting yet.
Spending the best part of the last 3 years firmly establishing themselves as one of the most exciting bands on the live circuit both and home and abroad, their captivatingly energetic live shows have won the hearts of people wherever they go. Having already completed a number of sold out dates across Ireland, the UK, US and Europe, debut album 'Tales From The Backseat' is sure to be the next step in what is likely to be an incredible year for the Westmeath four-piece.
The Academic is Craig Fitzgerald (vox/guitar), Dean Gavin (drums) and brothers Matt (lead guitar) and Stephen Murtagh (bass).
