Poly Action powers through the next phase of their career this week with a new release and a tour! While performing in another local quartet, Lola Tried (of which he is still a prominent member), guitarist and vocalist Ray Garza began Poly Action as a venue for his own songwriting only relatively recently. Just last year Poly Action rocked their way through their debut album, the aptly titled ten-song Baby’s First Rock N’ Roll, had been playing frequent local sets well before then and have ever since. Though the group is still young, 2018 is certifiably no longer baby’s first rodeo; now Poly Action is set to embark on a national tour in the next week with stops in Nashville, Chicago, Pittsburgh and Arlington.
Poly Action touts their tour kickoff 9PM this Wednesday at Hotel Vegas with supporting acts (and fellow Studio 1A veterans) PR Newman and Mean Jolene. Poly Action also enjoyed their sophomore release today with the unfurling of Defeated Red Bells, two B-sides from their debut album recording session that are still A-sides in our hearts. Don’t be defeated by all the April Fool’s ruses you fell for yesterday – Defeated Red Bells is a free download (no foolin’)!
