William Beckett from The Academy Is posted the following update last night. The band's acoustic tour kicks off today; click here for dates.
MessageIn roughly two hours I will be hailing a cab en route to Woodfield Mall, the momentary idle-spot and the no-longer-secret bus stop pick up location. There, Iíll be rendezvousing with Adam, Tony, Josh, Chris, and our new comrade Evan Taubenfeld. I woke up today with a bit of a sore throat, but it should be gone in a day or two, and I donít think it will effect the shows too much if at all.

Adam Siska/The Academy IsToday we are in Houston and I'm sore all over from yesterdays beach volleyball tournament against those bastards known as We the Kings. We had the day off in Pensacola, Florida right on the Gulf of Mexico. I nominate myself as MVP though I must say that William Beckett's tall and lanky figure didn't hurt for spiking the ball right into the red head from We the Kings face.
