The Academy Is
close About Me
- Me, Myself, and I
- Formed in the Chicago suburb of Hoffman Estates back in 2002, The Academy Is… captured attention right from the start with their inventive, electrifying take on expressive punk-inspired rock ‘n’ roll.
The band toured nearly non-stop behind their debut album’s release, sharing stages coast-to-coast with such like-minded outfits as Fall Out Boy, Motion City Soundtrack, and All-American Rejects. In 2006, the band embarked on its own rapturously received headline trek, topping a bill that also featured Hellogoodbye and Fueled By Ramen’s own Panic! At The Disco. With a fervent fanbase growing daily, The Academy Is… spent last summer winning over mainstage crowds on the annual Vans Warped Tour, and are back doing the same this Summer.
I'm pleased to announce our upcoming acoustic tour! We'll be heading out with some friends of ours on The Snakes & Suits Acoustic Tour with This Providence and of course, our new friend Evan Taubenfeld. We had so much fun on the east coast trip that we felt it was only fair to share the experience with the beautiful folks on the west coast and midwest as well. Check out the dates, get your tickets early, and stay tuned for more news on the tour soon!
Pre-sale tickets will be available tomorrow to members Santi's Little Helpers.
