Attention, attention! The Academy Is… is back and they’re up to something.
In 2015, the Chicago band reunited for a Riot Fest performance and an epic 10 year anniversary tour of their quintessential album Almost Here. Vocalist William Beckett has since played some solo shows and various members have DJ’d emo nights throughout the country, but for the most part, The Academy Is… has kept it fairly quiet. That is, until now.
Today The Academy is… updated their Facebook Page and replaced the Cubs logo that served as their profile picture since October of 2016 with a promo picture from their Santi record. Considering the album is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, it’s likely that we can expect a tour announcement from the band any minute now, or a special edition record re-issue at the very least.
Until the good news comes in, you can enjoy two of our favorite songs off Santi and Almost Here below.
