The Academic: not shoegazers

Hotly-tipped and scarily young Mullingar band The Academic have announced a one-off Dublin gig ahead of their appearances at Longitude and Benicassim in Spain this weekend.

The four-piece, who have been causing an old-school major label buzz in London for the last few months, play Dublin's Grand Social on Thursday, July 17 before playing Longitude on Friday and jetting off to Benicassim for a Sunday night gig.

The young Mullingar band, some of whom are just out of school, have already played shows with Little Green Cars, Kodaline  and The Pixes this year.

The band are just putting the finishing touches to their debut EP which is due out in September.
