A Westmeath band’s debut album goes on sale today.

Mullingar four-piece, The Academic signed a worldwide record deal in 2015 and fans will finally be able to hear ‘Tales from the Backseat’.

The indie-rock group will play an intimate hometown show tomorrow before embarking on an American tour next month.

Tom Nally, who owns Rochforts music shop on Dominic Street, says the band are the latest in a long line of talented musicians to emerge from Mullingar.
