Check out new single 'Permanent Vacation'...
The Academic

The Academic have announced plans for debut album 'Tales From The Backseat'.

The Irish band recently became social media sensations after uploading a loop-tastic video to Facebook, earning millions of plays across the globe.

Debut album 'Tales From The Backseat' arrives on January 12th, with the material largely being penned while the group were still in their late teens.

Precocious new single 'Permanent Vacation' is online now, a spiky indie hymn with a pop streak daubed in brightly coloured paint.

A flamboyant return, it's an ode to the delights of goofing off - perfect for Monday, then...

Catch The Academic at the following shows:

4 Dublin Vicar Street (sold out)
7 Manchester Sound Control
8 London Dingwalls
