THE ACTUAL's new album, entitled "In Stitches", is scheduled for release on May 29. The band features in its ranks singer Max Bernstein, who is the son of famed Pulitzer Prize-winning Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein. Rolling Stone said of lead singer Max Bernstein "…he knows his way around both a melodic hook and an understated chorus," and Law of Inertia declared, "If there's any disc in the world that proves pop-punk is still very much alive and a viable source of enjoyment, let THE ACTUAL's debut full-length be the harbinger of such greatness."
