The-Academy-Is

Break out the skinny jeans and slip into your best mid-2000s band tee because The Academy Is… have outlined plans to celebrate their debut album with a nationwide tour that will launch later this year.

Beginning on Friday, December 4 at the House of Blues Orlando in Lake Buena Vista, FL, the 10-year celebration of the debut album from The Academy Is… will touch down in seventeen major markets from coast to coast, including Atlanta, Boston, and, of course, Chicago. The final performance will take place at The Observatory in San Diego, CA on Thursday, December 31. You can view the full routing, which will find the band being supported by Partybaby, at the end of this post.

Tickets for the Almost Here tour go on sale this Friday, September 18 with a limited number of VIP packages going on sale today, Monday, September 14 through the band’s official website.

Almost Here is considered a seminal record amongst the pop rock elite. Released in 2005, the debut album from Chicago’s The Academy’s Is… was chock full of hits that have since become staples of the alternative pop movement. The band pushed boundaries with radio ready music and tongue in cheek lyricism that conveyed tales of sex, love, and growing up in the Midwest. You can stream one of our favorite cuts from the record below.
