One of the brightest, best young pop-punk bands in the game, Albany, New York’s State Champs burst onto the scene with their debut album ‘The Finer Things’ and haven’t looked back since.
A sunshine-filled follow-up followed in the form of ‘Around The World And Back’, as did tours with All Time Low and Sleeping With Sirens, stints on Vans Warped Tour, huge sets at Reading & Leeds Festival and a deluxe edition of ‘Around The World…’ featuring new songs and a tour DVD.
Oh, and State Champs - currently comprised of members singer Derek DiScanio, guitarists Tyler Szalkowski and Tony Diaz, bassist Ryan Scott Graham and drummer Evan Ambrosio - also contributed a cover of ‘The Sharpest Lives’ for the ‘Rock Sound Presents: The Black Parade’ covers CD. Awesome.
