Warped Tour PLUS puppies? This is a dream.
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.
Derek DiScanio and Tyler Szalkowski talks us through their earliest memories of attending Warped Tour, their fave lineups and reveal who they most like to hang out with on the road.

Judging only from the first two singles, 'Living Proof' is already pop-punk perfection.
