LOS ANGELES, CA — Friday, December 2, 2022 — Today, Classless Act, one of rock’s most buzzed-about new bands, launches a brand new acoustic music video for the LP track “All That We Are.” The video, which provides an all-acoustic take on the amped-up, energetic original track, was shot earlier this year, live with no overdubs, at Hollywood’s Sunset Sound, the studio where the band recorded most of its debut album, Welcome to The Show (Better Noise Music). “All That We Are” is one of the five unplugged song/video collection, due out December 16, that also includes acoustic versions of the album’s stand-out singles, “Classless Act, “This Is For You,” Time To Bleed,” and “Storm Before The Calm.” You can check out the “All That We Are” unplugged video HERE.
Said vocalist Derek Day, "'All That We Are’ - is it enough for us to survive? This is a question, a concept we found ourselves asking after all we have been through over the past two and a half years. Hell, the past seven or so years. We’ve been in a wee bit of a less-than-sunny time in our history. So what are we gonna do? Grow or go? Everyone needs to decide. We’ve got a show tonight, so I know what we’re doing!"
Two-thousand twenty-two has been a true breakthrough year for Classless Act, from having their second-ever road trek be supporting Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard on 2022’s biggest tour, the $173.5M grossing Stadium Tour, receiving over-the-top reviews for their debut album and live shows in North America, breaking into international markets with feature coverage in major music publications in Italy, the UK, Brazil, Australia, Finland, Poland, France, Spain, Romania, Russia, Czech Republic, and more, and having their vocalist, Derek Day, invited to perform two songs with Foo Fighters, Tommy Lee and Nikki Sixx at the L.A. Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert.
Classless Act - vocalist Day, guitarists Dane Pieper and Griffin Tucker, bassist Franco Gravante, and drummer Chuck McKissock - is currently wrapping up 2022 with a 19-city tour comprised of support dates with Giovanni & The Hired Guns, and headline shows; upcoming dates are below. As the UK’s Louder Sound put it, “There’s a genuine buzz about this Los Angeles band, and ‘All That We Are’ does a good job of explaining why.”

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 two-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."
With personal invites to appear on summer 2022’s highest grossing tour, The Stadium Tour, as well as the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert and Aftershock Festival, Classless Act are giving the industry whiplash with the constant head turning and are poised to become a next-generation defining act.
