Second Agenda is a dynamic multi-piece band that plays an amalgam of driving rock, alternative groove and hip-hop with lyrics that discuss possibilities and ask us to think collectively. The band is constantly searching for ways to facilitate understanding and compassion through the vast array of communication mediums. Second Agenda's performances are largely based around original music, a sound that melds a wide range of influences from Rage Against The Machine, Beastie Boys, Michael Franti, Jimmy Hendrix, and Smashing Pumpkins to Aesop Rock, Wu-Tang Clan, The Roots, and beyond.
Second Agenda is currently in the midst of their 8 0 tour in support of their most recent EP, Hope Is A Must (released July 2011) and the ever-growing Live Show Archive. Since the release of HOPE, the band has performed in support of such international acts as GZA of the Wu-Tang Clan; and Damian Marley & Nas. Second Agenda has also performed to benefit social causes like Solar Sister and Moving Planet.

Quote from a review of the EP, HOPE IS A MUST:
"My recommendation: buy the EP, listen to it reflectively on your own and experience it on a personal level. Then hit the town and groove with your friends to some of the most chill soulful rock you can find in the Burlington area with Second Agenda. These guys made an exceptional EP and their efforts are cause to celebrate and acknowledge that hope is a must.?
