Plan of Action, a relatively new band from Ionia, Michigan, are no more than five guys just hanging out and playing music that they love. The band started out with Ryan and Riley playing tunes down in Ryan's basement. After a little while, Matt Howard was added to the band as a second guitarist. Later on, yet another line-up change occurred as Dana came along and began playing rhythm guitar while Matt moved to the bass. After some time in the recording studio, the band released a four song demo.. but things quickly began to slow down, as school, work and sports took a toll on the band's progress. Realizing that they needed a new direction, InClosing switched their name to Plan of Action, and added the marvelous vocalist Kyle Epps to the band. With all of the singing duties now in his hands, the band began focusing on more technical and heavy riffs. Heavily influnced by the dual singing from Taking Back Sunday and the harmonies of Finch's first cd(What it is to Burn), Plan of Action quickly began to write music. Armed with recording equipment in drummer Ryan Muscott's basement, Plan recently sat down and layed down a four song demo called the Memories E.P. It features four new songs with a nice mixture of melodic singing, emotional screaming, and catchy riffs. The demo is available for $5, and can be purchased by contacting any of the members of the band. The band's new lineup is now set, with guitarist Troy "ManHouten" VanHouten taking the place of Dana Warren. Keep your ear to the ground and come check out our upcoming shows with Troy. Plan of Action is here to stay, ready to rock off faces with post-hardcore/emo music played to perfection.
