The latest edition in the WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight focuses on the fantastic new single, ” What Can’t We Be Friends?,” from Irish band The Academic. The quartet broke into the music scene earlier this year with their stellar sing-along anthem, “Bear Claws,” and are getting ready to release their highly anticipated debut album, Tales From The Backseat, which will be out January 12th, 2018.

The Academic have spent the past two years circling the globe on tour, shaping their sound and honing their stage presence, and are totally ready to be the next big breakout band here in the states. If all the accolades already pouring in before the release of the band’s debut are any indication of what is to come, 2018 is going to be a big year for the Emerald Isle 4-piece.

Their first headlining tour of the US has just been announced and you should check the dates and get yourself to the show. They’ll be stopping here in Boston Saturday, February 17th @ Great Scott my friends. Don’t miss it! Tickets and information can be found on the band’s Facebook page.
