Click HERE to read a new interview with William Beckett about the decision to move on from The Academy Is... and his plans for the future.
"Like I said, it’s very liberating. I’m more inspired than I’ve been since I picked up a guitar. It’s a good time in my life. I know that might be hard to hear for some people who are really upset about this, but they have to understand this wasn’t an impulse thing. This was a cumulative decision that led to this after a long period of time. You’re going to get a better product, a better result out of it, from all of us. Everyone’s going to be able to focus on whatever it is they want to pursue—whether it’s music or not—to their fullest. I really hope that we can stay close."
