Ireland’s The Academic announce their new album Sitting Pretty and with it this exclusively pressed multi-splatter variant of the record, limited to 500 copies and hand-numbered to order.

Produced by Nick Hodgson at Snap Studios in London, the album “is about the entrance into true adulthood and how that 

can alienate you from yourself, making you feel like you’re playing a supporting role in your own life,” the band explain. “In one moment feeling 100% certain about everything, only to become overwhelmed with feelings of aimlessness and lack of direction in the next.”

Their debut album ‘Tales From The Backseat’ landed at Number One in the Irish charts and the band have also shared details of four UK headline dates for February 2023, including the Shepherds Bush Empire for their biggest headline show outside Ireland. 

Please note that Blood Records is a pre-ordering platform and this record is due for release on February 10th 2022. All images for illustrative purposes.
