IRELAND’S #1 CHART-TOPPERS, THE ACADEMIC, SHARE TWISTED NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR ‘DIFFERENT’

OPENING FOR THE ROLLING STONES AT IRELAND’S CROKE PARK FOLLOWING 2 WEBBY AWARD WINS

One of the most talked about bands right now, The Academic, have shared a new video for their hit single “Different.” Serving a Black Mirror-esque take on the music industry, the clip follows the four-piece as they meet with a team of scientists to formulate their perfect image.

The Academic have been on a meteoric rise since the release of their full-length debut album ‘Tales from the Backseat’– the record instantly shot to #1 in their Irish album charts, earning raves everywhere from The Irish Times, Salon, Uproxx, V Magazine, Clash Music, Hotpress + more, and the band just confirmed an opening slot for their musical heroes, The Rolling Stones, at Dublin’s legendary Croke Park on May 17.

The Academic also won two Webby Awards this week, for their video “Bear Claws” – which rose to viral fame earlier this year, racking up over 1.5 million views in less than a week.

Currently on a run of sold out dates across the UK and Europe, The Academic return to Dublin to open up for The Rolling Stones at Croke Park Stadium before going back to the US next month on their next leg of what is a hectic tour schedule, which kicks off with a double header at NYC’s Terminal 5 and Brooklyn Steel. The band then return for what will be one of the nights of the summer with their biggest headline show at Iveagh Gardens, Dublin on July 20th.
