Hamilton-based pop-punk band Academy Killer is gearing up to share their forthcoming sophomore EP, Lost In Make Believe. Speaking on the new EP Lost In Make-Believe, the band shares:
“The universe allowed our paths to cross and our experiences in life allowed us to create a record true to ourselves that we couldn’t hold more dear. Making this record had an impact on us as individuals and we hope it can have a positive impact on listeners too.”
Academy Killer rallies listeners to shake off prescriptive norms with their celebratory brand of rock ‘n roll. The band builds on a pop-punk foundation with driving, uplifting guitar work and soaring, impassioned vocals. Drawing inspiration from emo, modern pop, 90’s rock and even the stylings of 50’s crooners, they deliver lively melodies underscored by deeply introspective, yet relatable lyrics and themes of self-discovery, positivity, love, and loss. Comprised of Kevin Talbot (vocals, guitar), Lucas Goldson (lead guitar), Omar Kurd (bass) and Nathaniel Schuster (drums), Academy Killer are united in their aim to create thoughtful music that’s exciting and honest.
