One band to definitely watch in 2011 is Action Item. The band recently finished up a tour with Allstar Weekend and have big things planned for 2011 including a new single with a familiar face: Chelsea Kane (aka Chelsea Staub from "JONAS").
The guys took some time to answer some questions just for us to share with you!
-You recently finished up your tour with Allstar Weekend. What was your favorite part of the tour?
Our favorite part was getting to connect with so many fans! It was definitely the best tour we've ever been a part of, so we made sure we tried to meet every single person who came out! Also, it great touring with Allstar again, they're really great friends of ours!
-Any plans to tour in 2011?
We're going to be doing our first headlining tour in January! It's only going to be 8 shows, but that's gonna give each show a chance to be really big! Our fans are really excited about seeing us headline! Then in March & April we plan on touring all over the country with some big artists, but I can't say who just yet!!
-We hear you have a new single coming out with Chelsea Staub. How did that collaboration come about?
Yes! On February 8th, a duet version of our song, "When Everything Falls Back Down" will be on iTunes featuring Chelsea Staub! She's so talented! We knew that the song would sound great as a duet, so we reached out to Chelsea and she loved idea!
-Can you tell us about the single?
The song is about a a boy & and girl but the girl who moves away to pursue her dreams. The message of the song is the boy saying, "If things don't go the way you plan, just know I'll still be here. No matter what." I think that's why it works so great as a duet.
-For someone who has never heard your music, how would you describe it?
We're huge fans of bands like OneRepublic, The Fray & Maroon 5. We're like a younger version of that style of music.
-What is one goal you have for 2011?
Sign a record deal!!
-Where can fans find you online?
