The Academy Is… Announces Reunion Tour
When the Chicago-based rock band announced its break-up in 2011, the group said it had “made its mark,” thanks to the records released, shows played, placed they’d been and people they’d met.
But now the guys are back. The Academy Is … agreed to reunite and perform its 2005 debut, Almost Here, at Riot Fest Chicago after being approached by the festival.
