Rock music’s most exciting debut of 2022, CLASSLESS ACT, are giving listeners a different, unplugged take on the amped-up, energetic anthems that make up their acclaimed album, Welcome To The Show, which was released June 24 via Better Noise Music and has already racked up more than two-million streams.

Starting today at 12:01AM local, the L.A.-based five-piece will launch a series of acoustic versions of the record’s hit singles, beginning with the self-titled song “Classless Act” alongside a new video.

See the acoustic video on KNAC.COM HERE

CLASSLESS ACT singer Derek Day recently appeared at the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert at L.A.’s Kia Forum on September 27 where Day joined Dave Grohl and members of the FOO FIGHTERS as well as MOTLEY CRUE for a special two-song set. He was personally recommended for a spot on the all-star lineup by THE DARKNESS’ Justin Hawkins who also appears on the CLASSLESS ACT track, “This Is For You”.

In December, CLASSLESS ACT will head out on the road again with Billboard chart toppers GIOVANNIE & THE HIRED GUNS for a U.S. tour that begins in Mobile, AL and wraps in Richmond, VA, with more dates to be announced. Tickets are on sale now at https://classlessact.com/#tour

Over the next two months, CLASSLESS ACT will release a new acoustic take and a new video every two weeks, culminating in a five-song collection, Welcome To The Acoustic Show, on December 16. The additional releases will include unplugged versions of “This Is For You”, “Time To Bleed”, “All That We Are” and “Storm Before The Calm”.

Recorded live at Sunset Sound, with no overdubs, the new takes hone in on the talent of frontman Derek Day and the musicianship of the talented-beyond-their-young-years ensemble that includes Dane Pieper (guitar), Griffin Tucker (guitar), Franco Gravante (bass), and Chuck McKissock (drums). Gravante personally mixed the acoustic tracks himself.

“Every song on the album pretty much started out this way. And we thought it would be cool for you to hear where we started. And we decided if we were going to do this, it needs to be LIVE; no f***ing around,” says Derek Day.

Upon Welcome To The Show’s release on June 24, CLASSLESS ACT immediately garnered critical acclaim, with press hailing them as “the next big thing in music” (Next Mosh) and “very reminiscent of when rock reigned supreme” (Loudwire). The Rock Pit declared the songs on the album “break like QUEEN used to so well into flamboyant guitar [with] SUPERTRAMP meets MUSE aplomb,” and New Noise also said it’s a record “that feels most easily summed up as ‘powerful’” from “a new-ish band who sound like the greatest hits of ‘70s and ‘80s rock eras, with a grace and vibe that’s more modern.”

The album reviews echoed the positive reviews the band has received for their live show, having shared the stage with DOROTHY and DIRTY HONEY as well as an opening slot on the summer’s biggest tour, the $173.5 million grossing Stadium Tour that graced major stadiums across the country and Canada.

Seeing CLASSLESS ACT live, Bravewords said they “sealed their place among hard rock’s new elite.” Splice affirmed, “While the band may be new, they performed like seasoned pros.…their music was filled with driving beats, big hooks, great guitar work, and equally as important tons of rock n’ roll attitude.” And Dread Music said, “CLASSLESS ACT absolutely made their presence known as they served up high-octane rock music on a platter to everyone in the park.…I was a fan before they finished their first song. This band is another in the army of acts that are the future of rock 'n roll, and I have no doubt that CLASSLESS ACT will be out there headlining their own tour soon enough.”

In addition to the Stadium Tour that featured DEF LEPPARD, JOAN JETT and MOTLEY CRUE, CLASSLESS ACT is fresh off appearances at Aftershock Music (Oct. 9), the West Coast’s Biggest Rock Festival, where they shared the bill with MUSE, BRING ME THE HORIZON and THE STRUTS.
