STATE CHAMPS- “AROUND THE WORLD AND BACK”

Pop punk band State Champs are to release their brand new album under Pure Noise Records on the 16th October following their recent UK tour. We had a cheeky preview of this masterpiece which includes already released songs “Secrets”, “Losing Myself”, “All you Are is History” and “Around The World and Back”.

In perfect State Champs style, “Eyes Closed” is the opening track of the album. With its jumpy tunes and unique tone, it is clear from the very first seconds that this album really stays true to the band’s roots and it can almost be considered a sequel to their debut album “The Finer Things”, released in 2013. This is what we like, a band which does not lose their style across the years.  Already after one hearing of “Eyes Closed” you will NEED to listen to the song on repeat due to how catchy and fun it is!

Following this great opener, a sequence of already released songs are strategically placed to make this album flow perfectly. The second song on the list is “Secrets” which has already piled up the most listens across the newly released tracks so far and there’s only one thing to say about it- WHAT A BANGER! This will easily out-do their most famous song of their previous album, “Elevated”.

The album as a whole just flows perfectly, it is guaranteed to give your ears an orgasm. Each song compensates each other, from start to end with no “odd” tracks which will let you enjoy listening to over half an hour of State Champs without a break letting it become your daily soundtrack.

Closing the record just as strong as it begins is “Tooth and Nail”. The drums and guitar riffs in this track blend particularly well together resulting in a tight and catchy tune which sums up State Champs’ personality in 3 minutes. What a great end to a great album!

One thing to say is that the band really made this album worth the wait! We can expect State Champs to conquer the world just as much as they have done in the past two years. Well done guys!
