A preview of our forthcoming full-length release, Treason, expected by late 2014. This EP is a collector's item released solely for Rocklahoma 2014.


A Course of Action is a powerful foursome that brings many years of musicianship and a genuine love of music for the sake of music. They are known for incredibly tight live shows, commercial edgy, radio-friendly, hard-rock music that promises to break the cycle of “new” rock styles and refocuses listeners on solid rock music, with clear influences of Alice in Chains, Tool, Sevendust and current influences such as Alter Bridge and Chevelle.

Lead guitarist, Jonathan Byrd, played on the national scene in a Mercury Records act known as Copperhead in the early 1990’s, but when that band met their demise, he and founding member, Tony Hawkins, formed Hybrid in 2000. They recruited for 3 years to find the right singer to solidify their vision for Hybrid, and they found that reality in John Culberson, a South Carolina native who also had regional success in True To One. After a few lineup changes, the band found their stride when they added Florida native, JT Silvestri on drums and Wes Johnson on bass guitar.

The band has been making huge strides month after month since then. The band was honored with an AFE Tour for the troops in 2008 and 2012 brought some label interest, but nothing that was the right fit. 2013 held the first SXSW showcase for the band, and 2014 brought a performance at Rocklahoma, as well as several national opener slots. After much local success and national/international radio airplay from the band's debut album, "Dark Before The Dawn", the band began working with award-winning producer, Beau Hill on tracks that would begin the band's forthcoming second release, titled "Treason". Tracks "Who We Are" and "107" have received lots of attention and produced two videos.

A Course of Action is a band to watch. The band is known for tight live shows, great music and solid original material. Hailing from North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida, the group brings many years of musicianship and a genuine love of music for the sake of music. That coupled with a strong DIY work ethic, the band seems poised for great things.

Once the band was asked, "what is your gimmick?" The answer was, "there is no gimmick. We are just four normal guys from the South making great rock music."

A Course of Action is proudly endorsed by Clayton Guitar Accessories, Soultone Cymbals, and DC Axes.

"...sorry guys, just a moment...have to scoop my mind up off the walls, cause it's just been officially BLOWN!! Awesome!! What a tight, crisp, superbly powerful sound you have here..stunning production!! and I just love how heavy, driven, but also magically melodic and emotional your tracks are..that vocal and the huge guitar layers on "who we are" are fantastic..and I'm hovering in one place from sheer jelly-dance-thrills hearing that massive riff on "107"..whatever milk and oatcake yer mama fed y'all, it's freakin working!! Brillllliant!!"
