State Champs Return With New Album, “Kings Of The New Age”

NY State’s own State Champs are here to stay with their new album, Kings Of The New Age and are proving they belong here!

With the same energetic pop punk sound with a fresh twist, the guys know how to write THE catchiest hooks that will stand the test of time. In classic State Champs fashion, they’ve put together a record that we want to blast in our car stereos as loud as we can crank it with the windows down driving around town all Summer long!

Featuring guest vocals from friends like Chrissy Costanza (Against The Current), Four Year Strong, Ben Barlow (Neck Deep) and Mitchell Tenpenny, the record draws you in and keeps you there with hooks so infectiously sweet – the pop punk greats of the past are already proud to hand the baton off to the guys.

Sprinkled in between tested and true fan favorites “Outta My Head” and the fun, kiss off track, “Everybody But You” (featuring Neck Deep‘s Ben Barlow) are stand out heartfelt love confessions in “Half Empty” and “Act Like That (ft. Mitchell Tenpenny)” showing the bands’ softer side.

“’Act Like That’ is the most ‘out of the box’ song for us on the album,” shares vocalist Derek DiScanio. “We had a lot of fun experimenting with some poppier elements, but it was challenging at first to bring the right level of SC energy to level it out. We hit a moment in the studio when we definitely found that balance, and we’re very excited to share this dance-y, rockin’, lyrically dynamic love song that makes you wanna jump around.”

State Champs’ duality of being able to write hooks that make you want to jump in the mosh pit and scream along to how much you love the person you’re with – or how much you hate them while still being super upbeat and sounding like the sunny side of life is what has set them apart and propelled them to the massive stages they deserve to be headlining with each record the release.

Seaway Release “London” Music Video

Seaway just dropped a super fun video for their latest single, “London” and really got us thinking about how we should be enjoying the snowy weather, too!  When asked about the new clip, singer Ryan Locke said “Shooting the video for London was probably the most fun we’ve had in the winter outdoors since going to igloo parties in high school.”
