The Academic - Why Can’t We Be Friends?

Following on from last months fantastic return, The Academic are back with their latest effort, Why Can't We Be Friends?. Taken from their long awaited debut album 'Tales From The Backseat', due for release January 12th 2018, the band tackle the subject of a love-hate relationship head-on in their chirpy highly energetic way. With a backdrop spearheaded with a vast concoction of sprawling guitars and their signature punchy basslines, the track serves as further ammunition in their catalogue of songs that "take aim at the turbulence of growing into your twenties". Take a listen to the new single below along with their recently revealed tracklist.
