The Academic - Kids (Don't End Up Like Me) (Official Video)

Making their very welcomed return today, Irish rockers The Academic share the announcement of their forthcoming new EP 'The Community Spirit', due to be released on the 9th July through Capitol Records. A real call to action, the single wastes no time in dusting off the cobwebs as it bursts in to rolling percussion and catchy guitars, all before their anthemic choruses take hold. Speaking about the release vocalist Craig Fitzgerald says: “Kids (Don’t End Up Like Me) is one of the first songs I remember writing back when I was a teenager. It was the first time that lyrics had come very easy to me. It’s written about the fear of not getting out of your hometown and amounting to anything. Thanks to the lockdown, I had plenty of time on my hands, but nothing to write about, so I started looking through all my old notebooks and found this song fully written. I had a gut feeling that it might come to life now with a few more years of living behind me since it was originally written.” Take a listen for yourselves below.
