The Academic are playing in Dublin next July and we have two tickets to the gig up for grabs.

The Westmeath indie rockers played a sold-out gig at the Iveagh Gardens last year, which was their biggest headline gig at the time, and now they're making a welcome return to the Dublin city centre venue on Friday July 19.

Tickets for the gig are now on sale priced €40, but if you would like to be in with a chance to win, simply head to RTÉ Entertainment's Facebook or Twitter page and share or retweet The Academic video.

The band, made up of Craig, Dean, Matt and Stephen, have had a meteoric rise to fame since releasing their debut EP Loose Friends three years ago.

Their debut album Tales From The Backseat was released earlier this year and went to number one in the official Irish album charts
