|ABOUT CLASSLESS ACT:
It’s not often that a band comes around like Classless Act who have tempted a new generation of fans and given rock’s faithful a reason to keep believing. Influenced by Queen, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles and Bowie, the L.A.-based five-piece bring a fresh, young take on a golden age of music. They’ve been applauded by bands like Jane’s Addiction, given nods from execs with Live Nation and MTV, and are already finding their footing in major international markets barely a year after releasing their first single “Give It To Me” in 2021.
With the release of their anticipated debut Welcome To The Show via Better Noise Music on June 24, the band immediately racked up 2 million streams and got the attention of rock bibles like Loudwire, SPIN, Metal Hammer, and Blabbermouth, the latter who said Classless Act “stands ready to carve out a legacy of its own.”
While the music tells its own story, so do the members of the band themselves, hailing from all over the globe, including Hawaii, Los Angeles, Argentina, and Dallas. The band, featuring Derek Day (vocals), Dane Pieper (guitar), Griffin Tucker (guitar), Franco Gravante (bass), and Chuck McKissock (drums), first formed in 2018 when the five former strangers met through friends via social media. Their chemistry quickly came to light, the members fusing together anthemic rhythms, shreddy guitars, soaring vocals and clever arrangements that, as one writer astutely said, have “…enough energy to power a city.”
