Canada
Pop Punk
Academy Killer are a 4-piece pop punk/rock band from Hamilton, On, Canada.
Making their debut in October of 2015, Academy Killer have since worked relentlessly to create and deliver their own brand of pop punk that does nothing short of break the mold. Tiresome of that same cookie-cutter stylings of pop punk, and not wanting to write within the stylistic boundaries of one specific genre, Academy Killer set out to write music while drawing influence from artists of various genres and eras, while still providing hooky melodies to scream at the top of your lungs, and riffs that will easily have you playing air guitar.

Since the projects conception, Academy Killer had gone through various member changes before solidifying a lineup to record and release their debut EP, Late To The Party, with a music video accompanying the title track, Late To The Party. The sole single off the EP and a following stand alone single, Burnin Baby, both garnered minor airplay. With music and a vision, the boys had taken their act to the club circuit, while playing various festivals such as Canadian Music Week(2016 & 2017), Indie Week, Burlington Sound of Music Festival, Burly Calling and Blackout Fest.

Academy Killer are scheduled to record their second studio EP in Summer 2018 and are looking to bring their music to as many listeners and fans as possible, and are looking to do a North American tour in support of their upcoming release.
Look out for Academy Killer in 2018!
