Classless Act Bring The Rock & Roll with The Darkness’ Justin Hawkins on ‘This is For You’

Classless Act are making huge waves in the world of rock n roll. Since their inception in 2019, this young LA outfit have been grinding out a solid reputation as one of the Sunset Strips must see live rock performances having garnered a loyal following of fans, not least of which is rock royalty, and subject of the odd Netflix flick, Motley Crue’s legendary drummer, Tommy Lee.

The years of hard work have paid off. After playing iconic venues the likes of The Whiskey A Go Go and the soon to be bulldozed Viper Room, Classless Act have only gone and snagged the support slot on one of the hugest stadium tours of the year with Motley Crüe, Def Leppard and Poison. Speaking about the upcoming tour, Tommy Lee said:

“I remember when we went out with Ozzy in 1984 and how it was an insane game changer!! We literally blew up after having that opportunity to play live in front of 20 thousand people every f***ing night! Since then, weve always felt it was importance of helping new bands; whether it was Guns N Roses, Skid Row or so many others.  This summer were gonna help out Classless Act. Theyre gonna sh*t their pants.”

As if Classless Act weren’t already hanging out with their fair share of legends, they’ve also gone ahead and released their second new song “This Is For You” featuring The Darkness’ frontman Justin Hawkins who rips out a killer guitar solo mid tune. Speaking of his epic contribution, Hawkins said:

One Tuesday night in February I gazed up onto the Swiss night sky. There, to my surprise I witnessed the beaming of The Hawk signal onto a passing cloud. After months of inactivity, I was called into action. My mission? To provide a face melting guitar solo to Classless Acts This is For You.I grasped my Gibson 335, headed into the hawk cave and within 24 hours the solo was born.”

Sadly, the recent news of the passing of the great Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters hit the fellas pretty hard, having recently met and collaborated on a song with the great musician. On their Instagram page, Classless Act stated:

“We are absolutely devastated by this sad news. We had the opportunity to meet him and write a song with him. He welcomed us in his house and was the nicest, funniest and humblest dude ever. This is a complete tragedy for music itself. We lost an amazing musician and an incredible person. Our condolences to his family.”

To be in the company of such revered musicians is a testament the hard work that Classless Act have put in over the years and just how good they’ve become. Definitely keep an eye out for these lads and while you’re at it, check out their outstanding debut single “Give It To Me”. Suss them out. They are absolutely worth it. Dig In.
