about

Action Jets, the PHX-based rock 'n roll trio with garage rock, power pop and rock ‘n roll sounds, are pleased to release “Breakin’ Through”, the band’s second full-length offering.

The release contains nine songs, with seven new recordings and two earlier singles - “Big Dumb Show” and “Tarot Cards” - released in 2016. The LP also includes an awesome cover of the Teenage Bottlerocket song “I Found the One”.

The new collection of rock ‘n roll songs on “Breakin’ Through” follows on the band’s 2015 debut “Action Party Epic Fun”, which introduced the Action Jets sound to garage rockers and powerpop fans everywhere. Since their debut release, Action Jets songs have been featured on rock 'n roll music podcasts, reviewed on indie rock blogs, and played on local Phoenix radio.

“Breakin’ Through” offers a raw, unfettered sound that fits the cool, melodic garage rock songs. Flat out rockers include ‘Big Dumb Show’ (new mix), ‘I Don’t Mind’ and ‘Rock ‘n Roll Drag Queen’. Lead songwriter Dfactor’s pop instincts shine through more clearly on “Your Number One” and “Whatcha Gonna Do About It”, and the punkier tunes include the TBR cover and ‘Tarot Cards’.

The band recorded “Breakin’ Through” on their own in a variety of locations. “We recorded throughout summer and fall 2016 in secret locations around the Phoenix valley,” remarked bandleader Dfactor Dave. “Mostly to capture lightning-in-a-bottle moments and to make sure we could work at our own pace.” New textures emerge in the songs, include keyboard sounds (played by Dfactor), and other elements of hand claps, cowbells, and synthesizers.

The band has 4-5 songs already written for its next offering, while its live shows feature a mix of originals and cover versions from The Replacements, Green Day, Badfinger and Generation X.

Action Jets “Breakin’ Through” is available for purchase here on our Bandcamp page as well as on Spotify, iTunes, Pandora, Google Play, Groove Music, YouTube and other fine digital music outlets.

Track Name: Big Dumb Show
Action Jets - Big Dumb Show

I couldn’t follow a straight line if you paid me
Too many curves in this life, common sense evades me
Yeah, I’m a man of my word, but my words get mixed up
What you think you heard, never gets said loud enough
Looking at a 3-2 count, 2 outs, bases loaded

We’re the last of a dying breed, sell our souls, fall to our knees,
And where we end up, I don’t know
Gonna take our lumps and go, to a far-off place we used to know
Far away from this Big Dumb Show!

Another 3-2 count, 2 outs, bases loaded
We’re the last of a dying breed, this flight is headed into the trees,
And where we end up, I don’t know
Gonna take our lumps and go, to a far-off place we used to know
Far away from this Big Dumb Show!
Track Name: I Found the One
Action Jets - I Found the One (Teenage Bottlerocket cover)

I, I found the one
Yeah she's as perfect as she seems
The star of all of my wet dreams
I found the girl, I found the one

I, I found the one
Yeah she doesn't fuck around
She turns my world all upside down
I found the girl I found the one

And there is nothing that can turn me off of you
You get me all fucked up like I've been sniffing glue
And I'm so horny that I don't know what to do
And now my balls are turning blue. Yeah

I, I found the one
Yeah she always treats me right
I wanna do her every night
I found the girl, I found the one
Track Name: I Don't Mind
Action Jets - I Don't Mind

I don’t mind if you never call me again
I don’t care what you do when I’m not there
No feelings left, kicked all around the town,
And all I see is just a senseless clown

But I don’t Mind ind ind ind
But I don’t Mind ind ind ind

What did you do? When you ran away a second time
Broke my heart in two, Yeah, You really were out of line
No feelings left, kicked all around the town,
But I don’t Mind, cuz baby you’re going down

But I don’t Mind ind ind ind
But I don’t Mind ind ind ind

I know I wasn’t perfect too, but baby I was perfect for you
All I know is at the end of the day, it’s time for me to get away!

But I don’t Mind ind ind ind
But I don’t Mind ind ind ind
I don’t Mind!
Track Name: Rock 'n Roll Drag Queen
Action Jets - Rock 'n Roll Drag Queen

Friday night and we were rocking the bar,
another night of acting like a big star
Sam and Sadie out there, look at ‘em go,
another night out at a rock n roll show.

Sexy kisses yeah, they fly through the night,
Cell phone glare makes everybody look white,
Scan the room, and check the face,
another makeup-wearing boy in her place.

Open up Pandora’s Box, baby, check out the scene
Another slice of sexy fun, feels like a dream
She’s my Rock ‘n roll Drag Queen

Boys and girls all dressed in hot summer clothes,
but underneath, oh baby, who knows?
The lights are dim, and everybody looks fine,
after all they’re looking for a real good time.

Hit the rhythm, dance around, take a chance,
lose your head in an exciting romance
It’s up to you, are you good, giving and game?
C’mon pretty baby, won’t ya tell me your name?

High heels, long legs, try to hit the in-between,
Such a crazy night, you feel like a sex machine
With your Rock ‘n roll Drag Queen

Open up Pandora’s Box, baby, check out the scene
Another slice of sexy fun, feels like a dream
She’s my Rock ‘n roll Drag Queen

Yeah, my rock ‘n roll drag queen,
big boy lovin’ machine
Oh, yeaaaaahhhh

Drag Queen, Drag Queen, She’s my rock n roll drag queen
Drag Queen, Drag Queen, She’s my rock n roll drag queen
Drag Queen, Drag Queen, She’s my rock n roll drag queen
Drag Queen, Drag Queen, She’s my rock n roll drag queen
Track Name: Your Number One
Action Jets - Your Number One

Everytime I go to see her, she’s got that look inside her eyes,
and everytime I wanna believe her, it’s just then that I realize
that there’s nothing there for me, left out in the cold again I see
Before I get too old, why can’t I just find someone fun?
I’m lookin’ for my number one...

You’re quite a little charmer, baby, when you’re out on your own
Flashing all your pearlies, keeping all the boys in the zone
I’m thinking you and I should play,
I’ve been consumed with you most every day
So let’s just make this happen, time to make this flirting full blown

Cause I got what you want, don’t need no stimulant
I’ll hang with you all night, we’ll go until daylight
Cause I wanna be your man, like nobody can
I’ll show you what I know, we’ll do it after the show
I wanna have some fun, I wanna be your number one
Be Your Number One

Show me that you’re ready to go,
we’ll take a little trip down to Mexico
You and me, babe, we’ll have a real good time
Yeah, We'll party with Roger Clyne

I’ll be your number one - one -one
I’ll be your number one - one -one
I’ll be your number one - one -one
I’ll be your number one - one -one
Track Name: Doubles
Action Jets - Doubles

If I wanted to look like you, Would I have to get a tattoo?
Maybe you’d do the same for me, And that would be okay
If I wanted to act like you, Would I have to learn kung fu?
Maybe you’d do the same for me, And that would be okay

I’ve wanted to live like this oh yeah
I’ve wanted to live like this oh yeah

You and I could be Doubles,
Maybe more than just friends
Yeah, it could really be awesome
And our time would never end

If I wanted to smile like you, Would I have to get my teeth done too?
Maybe you’d do the same for me, And that would be okay
If I wanted to drink like you, Would I need a growler or two?
Maybe you’d do the same for me, And that would be okay

Always wanted to live with my own me
Sounds just like a fine opportunity

You and I could be Doubles,
Living duplicate dreams
Yeah, It could really be awesome
One is you and one is me
You and I could be Doubles,
Maybe more than just friends
Yeah, It could really be awesome
And our time would never end

Doo Doo Doo Dooo, Doo Doo Doo Dooo
Doo Doo Doo Dooo, Doo Doo Doo Dooo

Come on over, let’s talk about it,
Maybe words just can't describe it
Duplicate yourself on top of me

You and I could be Doubles,
Living duplicate dreams
It could really be awesome
One is you and one is me
You and I could be Doubles,
Maybe more than just friends
Yeah, you and me in one amazing dupliworld,
And our time would never end.
Track Name: Tarot Cards
Action Jets - Tarot Cards

Stuck in middle-age ….the point of no return
Been there, done that, seen it all, no more to learn
Then…. a random act of madness drops a clue
Major and Minor, Arcana, yeah, something to du

Show me, your Tarot Cards
I wanna see, the avant garde
Spread them , don’t make it hard
the symmetry of your tarot cards.

Tarot cards have different meanings in the spread
Maybe a Lover or a Fool, or maybe even Dead
Spontaneity and Mystery, it’s true
Understanding the story’s gotta come from you

Show me, your Tarot Cards
I wanna see, the avant garde
Spread them , don’t make it hard
the symmetry of your tarot cards.

Show me, your Tarot Cards
I wanna see, the avant garde
Spread them , don’t make it hard
the symmetry of your tarot cards.
Track Name: Whatcha Gonna Do About It?
Action Jets - Whatcha Gonna Do About It?

Every fly outside your head? Soar along the silky wind
Better off than being dead, I’ll tell you all about it
And I don’t want to fly within, I don’t wanna cry
Tell me if you’re going to decide...

Whatcha Gonna Do about it? Whatcha Gonna Say?
Up and Down and In and Out, your game plan’s had its day
Whatcha Gonna Do about it? Are You Goin’ All the way?
or are you just a shooting star in your own galaxy?

Meet me at the bar tonight, We’ll kick a few back
Later on, we’ll make it right, You can have my number
So don’t you wanna fly with me? When will you decide?
The ticking clock is up, nowhere to hide...

Whatcha Gonna Do about it? Whatcha gonna say?
If you stick around with him, you’ll never get your way
Whatcha Gonna Do about it? Are you goin’ all the way?
or are you just a Shooting Star in your own galaxy?

It’s your call, Now do it all

I know what you’re thinking,
you can only take it, oh so much
I know what you’re thinking,
you can only take it, oh so much

Whatcha Gonna Do about it? Whatcha Gonna Say?
Up and Down and In and Out, your game plan’s had its day
Whatcha Gonna Do about it? Are You Goin’ All the way?
Never bet on shooting stars the same way, Everyday
Oooh, you’ve had your day
