Pop punk rockers STATE CHAMPS release new track

Ok, it’s still Summer in Europe, so I may be absolved from the guilt of posting too many melodic poppy tunes. The new song by STATE CHAMPS is taken from the Albany pop-punks’ forthcoming second album “Around The World and back, which is due on October 16th via Pure Noise Records. The record was engineered by Kyle Black (PARAMORE / NEW FOUND GLORY) and produced by Kyle and STATE CHAMPS’ own Derek Discanio.

The Albany, NY pop punk band has had a busy 2015, first supporting All Time Low on their US tour and most recently touring Australia supporting 5 Seconds of Summer. They will embark this week on a headlining US run, followed by an appearance at Long Island’s Mixtape Festival in August and then a European headlining tour that kicks off in September (all tour dates below). Formed in 2010, State Champs have released 2 EPs on Pure Noise and their 2013 debut LP “The Finer Things”, which charted at #131 on the Billboard Top 200. Committed road warriors, they have toured the US and Europe multiple times with the likes of Motion City Soundtrack, Bayside, The Wonder Years, The Story So Far and the entirety of the Vans 2014 Warped Tour.

Lyrics:

I said I’ll always remember the wood grain beneath my feet in a busy street / I never said I was angry, but I think I’m still in misery / But it’s what I needed and you took me by surprise / Sometimes I think I’m bound for losing it all / And I thinking I’m weighing – I think I’m weighing us down / But no, I won’t fall, and I wouldn’t trade it – I wouldn’t trade it. I’m down for life / Another day I was selfish, it reminds me of my wasted youth and all the one’s and two’s / I try to live in the moment, it reminds me of the time we spent trapped in your apartment / We attract what we’re ready for / It’s something I can’t ignore / Sometimes I think I’m bound for losing it all / And I thinking I’m weighing – I think I’m weighing us down / But no, I won’t fall, and I wouldn’t trade it – I wouldn’t trade it now / Maybe some promises were broken; wasn’t holding tight / But now I wanna know what it feels like / Sometimes I think I’m bound for losing it all / But I wouldn’t trade it – I wouldn’t trade it. I’m down for life /Call it off, I’ve made my move / I’m defenseless and I could use some time on my own and a place to say / I’m losing myself in the best way / Done with anything basic / I’ve had enough of the same shit. Tell me why / We attract what we’re ready for / It’s something I can’t ignore / Sometimes I think I’m bound for losing it all / And I thinking I’m weighing – I think I’m weighing us down / But no, I won’t fall, and I wouldn’t trade it – I wouldn’t trade it now / Maybe some promises we’re broken; wasn’t holding tight / But now I wanna know what it feels like / Sometimes I think I’m bound for losing it all / But I wouldn’t trade it – I wouldn’t trade it. I’m down for life
