    After nine years and three albums, The Academy Is... have decided to go our separate ways. We began in 2003 as three young friends in the suburbs of Chicago, with dreams of creating music that meant something to us. Dreams of leaving those suburbs behind and seeing all of the beautiful things that this world has to offer. Dreams of making a difference in the lives of others.

    It is now 2011 and we look back at the records we've made, the shows we've played, the places we've been.
    The people we've met.

    The Academy Is... has made its mark.
    We celebrate the experiences of our past, as we welcome what lies ahead.
    While we have never managed to make things easy on ourselves, it is safe to say that we have always found common ground in our love of music.
    And though we may not be together, you can look forward to hearing new music from each of us.

    The music we have made together is our gift to you. From this point on, The Academy Is... belongs to you. Feel free to listen. Listen as loud as you'd like.

    Yours,
    The Academy Is...

It really didn't hit me until now, I'm really really sad, and yes I'm crying, but I now it may be for the best... I just hope you guys are happy with that decision, but promise this won't be the last we hear from you c':

I can't help but to feel sad. You are a big part od my life's soundtrack and I feel like I owe you so much, I'm never going to be able to pay you back.
THANK YOU, SO MUCH, for everything.
I'm sad I'm not going to see you live as TAI, not soon at least.
Thank you once again, and forever. We're always here for you.

I've been with you since high school. Of course I shed a tear, but I wish all you guys the best of luck in what you do next. Together or apart. Thanks for the shows, the music, and the fun. I need a hug. ;_;
