The Academic are maturing into one of the best Irish exports. Never mind just Westmeath. Whoa, relax Niall Horan fans...oh and The Blizzards stans ...and okay okay Joe Dolan hardcore groupies...there's room for everyone!
Westmeath has produced some astonishing sounds and the lads are well up there.
'Acting My Age'
Now in the weirdness that is 2020 they have released an epic E.P. ironically titled 'Acting My Age' which has such a mature sound you would think they band had decades under their musical belt.
Our new EP #ActingMyAge is out everywhere now! 🎭 We had so much fun making this, we’re so proud to finally bring it to you all. Share it with your friends, play it loud. Listen here: https://t.co/R0VD55Cb01

TodayFM's Fergal D'Arcy met them at a live private performance streamed for fans who pre-ordered the E.P. - it was their first gig in over 100 days and by did they enjoy it!
