ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Action! was formed in the fall of 1998, in Syracuse, NY. Their music is a hard-to-classify blend of rock, ska, punk, and jazz.

The Action!, formerly known as Skatos, has recorded two full-length albums; Skatalogical (1999), and Waiting For Tuesday (2001). They have appeared on the internationally released ska compilation Still Standing (Jump/Megalith), as well as the ska/punk compilation How I Punked Out Of Skallege (Red Dragon). The band also recorded and independently released an e.p. of demos called the 16 Hour E.P. and a live E.P. entitles We All Make Mistakes. The Action! also wrote and recorded a song used in local Syracuse commercials for the popular television show The Simpsons.

The Action! has served as the opening act for such bands as Gym Class Heroes, Reel Big Fish, The Toasters, The Pietasters, Jimmies Chicken Shack, The Planet Smashers, The Slackers, Mustard Plug, and Sheila Devine. On stage, the band delivers a tight, adrenaline fueled performance that has remained unmatched by their musical peers.

In 2003 the members of The Action! took a break from the band as school, jobs, and other projects made it increasingly harder to perform or rehearse regularly. However, in April of 2006 it was announced that they would reunite and organize a benefit show for their friend and bandmate Brandon Hall who was diagnosed with leukemia. The show was a great success, leading the band to start writing more and playing out again. In June 2008 the band recieved a Syracuse Area Music Award in the People's Choice catagory for Best Band.
