Brighton has long been a command post for UK music talent and it appears the legacy is set to continue. Taking inspiration from the music which sound-tracked their formative years, a sound which is perhaps associated with the sun drenched coastlines of North America rather than the pebbled beaches of England. The Call Back Academy take their love from their musical influences, anglicise it, and produce a sound which is both unique and identifiably their own. ______________________________________________________________________ 'Fun, heavy, and catchy as hell - what more do you want, exactly? Listen up.' - RockSound ‘Now, then! THE CALL BACK ACADEMY, hailing from Brighton, have officially arrived with their debut EP ‘Smarter Than Your Average Bear’ – it’s great.’ – Punktastic ‘Introducing The Call Back Academy, a Brighton, England rambunctious bunch of lads delivering their brand of pop punk with their 4-track debut EP, Smarter Than Your Average Bear. No filler, no intro, just a straight up full course meal fusing the best parts of pop and punk in one dish. ‘ – Rawtuneage. ‘The band have in their armoury all the tools to be a pop-punk force to be reckoned with.’ – Soundsenseonline. ‘The straight-up sound from these guys delivers a package that makes you just want to bounce within the first 30 seconds of any of their tracks. The punchy pace and gang shouts deliver a classic pop-punk feel, with an inspired twist that will leave you feeling good way after the song’s done!' - Less Magazine " We ploughed all of our efforts into creating just that, we used our life stories, frustrations and ambitions, to help mould this band into something we could be proud to call our own.” - Jonny, Ben, Ed, Graeme.
