The Academic Announce Vicar Street Date

After spending the majority of this year making waves in the US, Westmeath indie rockers The Academic return for what will be their first and only Irish headline show of 2017, at Vicar Street on November 4th. Tickets go on sale next Thursday 14th September at 9am from all usual outlets.

The guys will have just returned from a 25 date tour in the USA for Vicar Street, before they head off again!

The 4 piece have had a meteoric rise since releasing their debut  EP ‘Loose Friends’ just under 2 years ago. A Choice Music Prize nomination for their debut single ‘Different’ was followed by sold out shows and tours across Ireland, the UK and Europe, millions of streams online, and radio airplay across the world most recently with their hit song ‘Bear Claws’ an “indie banger” according to Clash Magazine. The track which is the first single from their highly anticipated Debut Album has been gaining huge momentum at radio in Ireland, the UK, Europe and now in the US where it was the 8th most added track at the hugely influential Billboard Alternative Chart a couple of weeks ago.

‘Bear Claws’, produced by Tim Pagnotta (Neon Trees, Saint Motel), is now available on all platforms.
