STATE CHAMPS are back with new single and video “Just Sound”

Pop punk rockers STATE CHAMPS are back with their first new music since 2020′ 10h Anniversary release UNPLUGGED. Their new power single ‘Just Sound’ is founded on a slightly heavier instrumentation and comes as one big catchy hook that will stick with you for weeks. This catchy new track has also been released alongside a fun-loving new music video featuring lead vocalist, Derek DiScanio, dressed as America’s favorite TV painter, Bob Ross.

Vocalist Derek DiScanio comments: “It feels amazing to be back, and we’re just getting started. “Just Sound” is the perfect introduction to the new age of Champs. Fast, catchy, and edgy are what we’ve always been known for and this one takes it to the next step. If you’re wondering what the song is about, use your imagination, listen to the lyrics, and I’m sure you can figure out the subtle, yet not-so-subtle meaning.

As far as the video goes, I’m still trying to figure out how the rest of the guys convinced me to do this one… Let’s go ahead and call it “motivational pressure” to not take ourselves so seriously and just have fun with every step along the way.“

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.

State Champs released their latest EP “State Champs Unplugged” in the summer of 2020 via Pure Noise Records. Featuring four new songs as well as two fan-favorite tracks from “Living Proof”, the EP is reflective of the diverse listening habits of the foursome, unapologetic about their love of everything from Pop to Country without sacrificing the upbeat enthusiasm of the central influences that first moved their collective souls. “State Champs Unplugged” is available to purchase HERE.

“Just Sound” lyrics

It’s been some time since things felt right, I know that I missed the call last night, but you know that’s the way it goes
I miss your smile, your laugh, your voice, I’d be with you if I had the choice, but we don’t have to be alone

It’s all we know

Ride tonight with just sound
Up too high to come down
With your face reflected
We’ll stay connected
Til it all comes back around

State Champs

I set the scene, you set the pace.
No matter the time, the vibe or place, there’s no rules when we’ve got love.
I feel the distance with no touch, it don’t mean shit when you mean so much.
You’re not here but it’s enough.

Without your touch
You’re still enough

Ride tonight with just sound
Up too high to come down
With your face reflected
We’ll stay connected
Til it all comes back around

I’ve been waiting for a moment to feel this way,
And every moment looking forward is worth the wait

Without your touch
You’re still enough

Ride tonight with just sound
Up too high to come down
With your face reflected
We’ll stay connected
Til it all comes back around
