About The Academic
Forming in their early teens, The Academic are Craig Fitzgerald, Dean Gavin and brothers Matt and Stephen Murtagh. In late 2014 word started spreading throughout the flatlands of Westmeath, a small county in the middle of Ireland about these 4 young kids who played really fast and short sets that sometimes just fell apart but sometimes was pure magic to witness. No frills just short, sweet and straight to the point.
Ireland’s newest indie-rock sensation have had an incredible 18 months. From playing a ‘Battle of The Bands’ competition at their local school the band have emerged as one of the most exciting live acts on the music scene. With an already impressive live resume which includes a long list of sold out headline shows, appearances at some of Europe’s most high profile festivals as well as opening slots for acts like Twenty One Pilots, The Strokes, Catfish And The Bottlemen, The Academic have also been a firm favourite with the online blogosphere reaching No.3 on Hype Machine, amassed millions of streams online and have also had widespread international radio play including support from BBC Radio 1 in the UK (Annie Mac, Huw Stephens, Phil Taggart).
