Fantastic record! It saved my life!

So, I bought Living Proof the other day and my little sister came in with a bag of gummy bears as I was chilling by my pool listening to it. I didn’t think anything of what I put in my body, until I saw the bag. I noticed the label said “Sugar-Free Gummy Bears”, and I ran like Usain Bolt to the bathroom. Keep in mind, at this point, I’m still listening to the album. I thought it was those nasty little bears’ “...Time To Go”, so I braced for hell on earth, but I sat and listened to the rest of the album, and NOTHING happened. Good job State Champs, you saved me from the Sugar-Free Gummy Bears!

About State Champs

Albany, New York-based pop-punk band State Champs started out in 2010, basing their quick-paced and emotive sound on the influence of masters of the genre like Fall Out Boy, the Story So Far, and New Found Glory. Based around singer Derek Discanio's wailing vocals, the band was filled out by guitarists Tyler Szalkowski and Tony Diaz, and bassist William Goodermote; they were eventually joined by drummer Evan Ambrosio. After a demo circulated, the band released the Overslept EP in late 2012, and followed with full-length The Finer Things in 2013. An acoustic revamp of The Finer Things -- The Acoustic Things EP -- was released in late 2014. A year later, the band released their second LP, Around the World and Back, on Pure Noise Records. The album would prove to be somewhat of a breakout for State Champs, reaching number 30 on Billboard's Top 200 and laying the foundation for two years of hard touring. They issued a deluxe version of the same album with a DVD and a number of bonus songs in early 2017. A third full-length, Living Proof, arrived in 2018 and included the single "Dead and Gone." ~ Fred Thomas
