State Champs talk Australian tour and ‘Kings Of The New Age’


New York pop-rockers STATE CHAMPS are returning to Australia this September with very special guests THE MAINE, HOT MILK PAPERWEIGHT in support recently released their latest album ‘Kings Of The New Age’.

Starting in bedrooms and basements in 2010, State Champs quickly ascended as leaders of a new scene owing as much to early Fall Out Boy and Green Day as latter-day Warped Tour bands. Over the course of their career, State Champs delivered their music and heartfelt message on extensive tours with bands like Fall Out Boy, 5 Seconds Of Summer, A Day To Remember, and Simple Plan; three different Warped Tours; and a co-headliner with Neck Deep.

The Everblack Podcast spoke to Tyler Szalkowski and Evan Ambrosio from STATE CHAMPS about their return down under next month, latest album ‘Kings Of The New Age’, playing the massive Sad Summer Fest with touring mates Hot Milk, future of the band and more!

Watch/listen to the interview here: 

State Champs has always embraced the idea of getting their music in front of as many people as possible. They aren’t running away from the sound they’ve established; if anything, it’s that scrappy punk spirit that drives them to continue to reach further and further. They’ve done pop arena tours, metal tours; they’ve even played a show on a beach. Wherever they turn up, they are going to be sincere and passionate. They are going to have fun. And moreover, so will you. This is an arena-ready band, capable of moving any kind of crowd, with the heart and soul of DIY freedom.
