Classless Act Announce Debut Album ‘Welcome To The Show’ And Release New Track ‘Time To Bleed’

Announcing the June 24 release of their debut album ‘Welcome To The Show‘ today, rising Los Angeles rock band Classless Act also dropped a new track and video called ‘Time To Bleed‘ via Better Noise Music.

The song aims to inspire fans to take action in their communities, as lead singer Derek Day sings, “And even though the earth’s on fire, Waiting for the next Messiah, We still got a job to do.” Having already collaborated with the band on ‘This Is For You‘, Justin Hawkins of The Darkness jumped in the studio to help with the song’s melody. Iconic band Dorothy has co-signed Classless Act, inviting them to open for their “Gifts From The Holy Ghost Tour,” which began this spring. Having already peaked the attention of media at SPIN Magazine and Loudwire with previous singles ‘Give It To Me‘ and ‘This Is For You (ft. Justin Hawkins of The Darkness)‘, the announcement of their highly-anticipated debut album comes ahead of their show dates with Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard and Poison on the North American Stadium Tour. Mötley’s Vince Neil is also set to feature on one of the album’s tracks. The Stadium Tour is set to kick off in Atlanta on June 16 and end in Las Vegas on September 9. See below for dates and more information. ‘Time To Bleed‘ is available to stream and download here. Pre-orderWelcome To Show‘ now. Full tracklisting below.

Bass player Franco Gravante, who produced, mixed, and cowrote the track, explained the origins of the song, “It’s one of the first riffs I wrote for the record a couple years back. But I couldn’t finish the song. We got some magic dust sprinkled on it by Justin Hawkins and that gave me the confidence to know THIS song belonged on the record. But the record was already done and delivered. So we called the label and said, HOLD UP! Then we called Keith (Nelson), he booked a studio and 37 hours later, it was on the record and it’s coming out now! It was so fast. I think they’re still cleaning up the mess we made.  It takes what it takes, ya know?

After working on the song with the band during quarantine, Hawkins commented, “I had the pleasure of writing with these young men at the beginning of the Covidian era. It quickly became apparent that I had underestimated their musicality and talent. They make really sleazy good time rock and roll music with smiles on their handsome faces and I am proud to have contributed. Good luck boys!

The band also released part three in a four-part series that loosely follows the band as they set the soundtrack for the misadventures of Farley; an unlucky soul who just happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. The official music video was directed by John Orphan, watch the visual here.

As an early follower of the band, Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee is excited to co-sign the rising rockers and have them join the legendary lineup on the road this summer, saying, the following in a statement last month: “I remember when we went out with Ozzy in 1984 and how it was an insane game changer!! We literally blew up after having that opportunity to play live in front of 20 thousand people every f***ing night! Since then, we’ve always felt it was important to help new bands; whether it was Guns N Roses, Skid Row or so many others.  This summer we’re gonna help out Classless Act. They’re gonna sh*t their pants.

About Classless Act:

When they released their debut single ‘Give It To Me‘ in the summer of 2021, Classless Act were immediately praised for their ability to sound both fresh and timeless. Loudwire instantly added the song to their “Weekly Wire” Spotify playlist, identifying it as one of the top new releases of the summer. And other iconic outlets, like SPIN Magazine, were early to show support. It was a fitting public introduction to a band who embody what it means to be modern rock stars.

The band – consisting of members Derek Day (Vocals), Dane Pieper (Guitar), Griffin Tucker (Guitar), Franco Gravante (Bass), and Chuck McKissock (Drums) – initially formed in 2018 after connecting and bonding virtually by their love and passion of music. Now in Los Angeles, they’ve united on a mission to be the next great generation-defining act, drawing inspiration from classic rock acts of the 70’s and alt-rock groups from the 90’s. Their music echoes the hallmarks of previous generations – anthemic rhythms, shreddy guitars, soaring vocals – but punches its way into the future with clever arrangements, sharp musicianship, and proficient songwriting.

Already making noise in the industry, the band has been in the studio with world-class producers like Bob Rock, Michael Beinhorn and Joe Chiccarrelli, who have helped craft hits for the likes of The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica, Soundgarden, and The White Stripes. The band recently landed a deal with Better Noise Music, Mediabase and Billboard’s #1 rock label for 2020. Their debut album is expected in 2022, when the band will be hitting the road with Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, and more, on their Summer Stadium Tour.
