The Academy Is...
“Front man William Beckett and guitarist Mike Carden grew up as rivals, in separate bands on the Chicago local music scene. After realizing they were very much alike, they decided to try their hand at writing songs together and The Academy Is…was born.”
Produced by Butch Walker, the band’s sophomore album marks a major leap forward for The Academy Is… both in terms of sonic strength and artistic vision. The band reveals a unique gift for stadium-sized melodies and unstoppable hooks. Raw yet rich, complex but immediate, Santi instantly catapults The Academy Is… to the front ranks of modern American rock bands.
