Nationally Acclaimed North Carolina Hard Rock Band A Course Of Action Signs With Star 1 Records
ACOA Licensed as Official MTV Artist--‘Who We Are’ to Appear On Viacom.TV site/Single Globally Distributed through INgrooves
ACOA has long set the standard for quality musicianship and are well-known for their “tight” performances, coupled with an electric stage presence. Their signing with STAR 1 RECORDS is the next step towards bringing the group and their music to the next level and growing their already substantial fan base.
Through their label’s exclusive licensing deal with the media giant VIACOM, ACOA is now recognized as an Official MTV artist. Their commercially appealing video “Who We Are” is set to debut on Viacom.TV over the next two weeks. The accompanying single will be distributed globally through INgrooves to 100 countries and over 750 retailers.
The label’s Director of Artist Relations, Kiki Plesha, was keenly aware of ACOA and the “buzz” they were creating in the industry when the opportunity to sign them presented itself. “I am especially pleased that STAR 1 RECORDS will be working with ACOA. I was already a fan of the group, so it is exciting to be taking this journey together with a band I already admire and respect.”
A COURSE OF ACTION is: John Culberson, Jonathan Byrd, JT Silvestri, and Wes Johnson.
According to their spokesperson, John Culberson, “They say rock is dead. It's just waiting for a resurgence; a new direction. This opportunity to join a label that is forging new ground in the industry is amazing to us, and is what we hope will bring about this new rock era. We've worked for way too many years to push out into the national scene, and finding the right partner to make that happen was very important for us. We are excited to see what we can accomplish with this new album launch and to truly see what A COURSE OF ACITON is capable of becoming.”
The band is gearing up for their performance at ROCKLAHOMA this coming May, appearing with such notables as LINKIN PARK, TESLA, GODSMACK and SLAYER. They have received endorsements from CLAYTON GUITAR ACCESSORIES, SOULTONE CYMBALS, DC AXES and CURT MANGAN STRINGS. ACOA was featured in the July 2014 issue of the global Independent Music magazine ION INDIE MAGAZINE.
