‘Kids (Don’t End Up Like Me)’ is the newest single from the Irish indie rockers The Academic. The single is a recreation of a song written by frontman Craig Fitgerald as a teenager. “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.” he notes.

Catchy, energetic and uncomplicated - it’s all you really need from a summer soundtrack. Despite The Academic’s younger age, they have proven their capability many a time and any new releases are met with open arms from their adoring fans.


‘Kids (Don’t End Up Like Me)’ is a must to listen to if you after an infectious, memorable and fun-loving song. Big things are certainly in the picture for The Academic, the 4-piece were even hand-picked by Mr. Jagger himself to support The Rolling Stones in Dublin.
