The Actual were a four piece alternative rock group from Los Angeles, California. They were signed to Eyeball Records and released one album for the label before signing with Scott Weiland's label Softdrive Records. They opened for the supergroup Velvet Revolver at the Aladdin Hotel in the summer of 2005 and also played the Volcom stage on the 2007 Warped Tour.

The Actual's second album "In Stitches" was released on May 31, 2007 on the Softdrive label. They promoted the album by touring as the opening act for Velvet Revolver on their Spring 2007 club tour. Weiland is the co-producer of "In Stitches". The album's first single, "This is the Worst Day of My Life," was selected as song-of-the-week on MySpace in late May 2007.

Max Bernstein is the son of author Nora Ephron and author-journalist Carl Bernstein of Watergate fame.
