Emerging band cruise into the holiday spirit with “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year”
Hailing from Los Angeles, next-generation rock band Classless Act wants you to have a rockin’ Christmas time as you listen to their cover of “It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year” via Better Noise Music. The track is accompanied by a video drawing inspiration from Bad Santa. Adding some variety to your Christmas playlist, Classless Act’s rendition of the Christmas classic stays true to their classic rock roots.
Lead vocalist Derek Day shared his thoughts on the band’s newest track, stating, “The boys and I all love AC/DC. We all love Queen. And we all love Christmas. And what happens at three in the morning on a Saturday when we put them all in a blender…along with a few other key ingredients? Voilà!”
The band continues to radiate a carefree vibe in the “It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year” official music video. Directed by John Orphan and starring Jeff Hilliard, the visual follows an alcoholic mall Santa as he attempts to recall the sordid details of the night before, ending in a fight against another mall Santa.
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, shredding 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 No. 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 The Stadium Tour.
