News of The Academic’s US tour comes after the announcement of European dates, which begin in Glasgow, Scotland on release day, before touching down in major metropoles such as Paris, London, Berlin and Amsterdam.
Momentum for Sitting Pretty — album and tour — has been building since the boys from Mullingar launched their new era with the captivating “Don’t Take It Personally” at the beginning of September. The Academic steps into album number two with the support of a massive cult-like and ever-growing fanbase that has followed their every move since Tales From The Backseat, their first offering, debuted at number 1 in Ireland in 2018, which received critical acclaim on both sides of The Atlantic.
The Academic have built a reputation for electric shows and with a new album of anthems to slot into their hit-filled setlist, The Sitting Pretty Tour is not one to miss.
