The Action Design
The Action Design emerged like most things, from the end of something else. When the pop-punk act Tsunami Bomb disbanded, vocalist Emily Whitehurst and bassist Matt Mckenzie soldiered on adding guitarist Jaycen McKissick (ex- Pipedown) and drummer Jake Krohn (ex- Calcutta Bazaar) to put their new stamp on the San Francisco music scene.
With a focus on change from each of their previous styles, the band’s debut full length is bursting with energy for their September 23rd release on PopSmear Records. Never Say carries great weight with its soaring vocal melodies, heart-pounding music and fresh-minded potent lyrics.
The Action Design will be playing Bottom of the Hill, July 13th.
