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
