The Academy Is... Splits Up
In October 2011, The Academy Is... announced they were disbanding. That came as a surprise to me because when I had talked to bassist Adam T. Siska in 2010, he seemed very pumped about the new album TAI were working on. That album was never released.
Sisky went on to join the band Say Anything and singer William Beckett has embarked on a solo career. Drummer Andrew Mrotek (aka "The Butcher") has a project called The Animal Upstairs. I don't have details about Mike Carden's and Micheal Guy Chislet's plans after departing the band.
I saw William's solo gig at Local 506 in Chapel Hill May 21. William is a very engaging performer and it was clear everyone there had a great time, including me.
