Chicago-based Action/Adventure have released a cover of The Anxiety’s 2021 hit“Meet Me At Our Spot”, the song also features label mate Alex Melton. The single is out now via Pure Noise Records.
Speaking about the cover Blake Evaristo said: “When this song came out last year we very quickly became obsessed with it and listened to it all the time while on tour. We’d joked around about covering it and ended messing around with the progression at practice one day it was cool so we went with it and it came out super fun”.
Alex Melton also spoke about working with Action/Adventure and said: “I’ve been a fan of Action/Adventure for a while now, I love their energy and the Pulling Focus EP absolutely bangs. I was ecstatic to be able to sing with them on this cover. We split up the parts between the three of us and it’s such a great concept jumping back and forth between the vocalists. I love what they’re doing and I’m such a fan, and I think it’s so cool that I got to be a part of this project. Thanks boys!”.
Action/Adventure is the pop-punk band you didn’t know you needed. The dynamic five-piece are all multi-instrumentalists who have been playing together for nearly a decade. Comprised solely of BIPOC, their mission is to create #PopPunkInColor and ensure pop-punk is a genre where everyone is represented on and off stage. Action/Adventure has gotten attention from alt scene tastemakers like Alternative Press and Kerrang!, garnered nearly 20k monthly listeners on Spotify, over one million plays on TikTok and even secured a slot at the final Vans Warped Tour in 2018.
Typically landing somewhere near melodic hardcore, Action/Adventure collectively writes music that slides along the vast spectrum of pop-punk. Poppy lyrics and melodies bring an air of familiarity that are simultaneously bringing a fresh perspective through a new lens and gripping riffs and thrashing breakdowns that you can nod your head to, they draw inspirations ranging from Fall Out Boy to Senses Fail and Four Year Strong.
Action/Adventure has now successfully planted their flag into the national landscape of the pop-punk scene following a nearly overnight viral success of the impactful music video for their powerful 60-second single “Barricades” on TikTok. The video details specific discrimination that each member has faced as a group of entirely BIPOC while playing at pop-punk shows. Within three weeks the guys had one million-plus views of the video and an email from their dream label in their inbox.
