STS AND CAMPAIGN ZERO

When we started creating this video for "We Are The Reckless" we were all dealing with the new difficulties and uncertainties of being on lockdown during a global pandemic under poor leadership. Shortly thereafter the world got a crystal clear glimpse into the unfortunate realities of racism & police brutality as we all watched George Floyd murdered on the street in broad daylight. As the US and the rest of the world erupted into protest and we witnessed even more of the same, it became increasingly important for us to show our support in whatever way four white guys in a band possibly could. "We Are The Reckless” has always been, at it's core, a protest song about an uprising and we are witnessing one right now. The video will premiere on YouTube Friday, July 10th. Follow thi link to set a reminder for when it goes live

“In the darkest of days—This is the reckoning—We are the reckless and we’re ready to throw down.” 

 

As hundreds of thousands of people around the globe march in support of police reform and racial equality, these lyrics and this song resonate in a way we couldn’t have imagined when we first wrote them. And your actions, especially, give hope to the line: “The world’s gonna pull through.” 

 

In support of Campaign Zero’s goal to end police violence in America, we’ve created a special fundraising T-shirt and will donate 100% of our proceeds. Follow the link below to learn more about Campaign Zero, purchase a shirt, or make a direct donation to this non-profit organization if you can.

 

We miss seeing your faces and playing in sweaty clubs, and we hope to do so again as soon as we all safely can. Until then, be well—socially distance and wear those masks to protect yourselves and your family and friends.

Atmospheric Alt Rockers State To State To Bring New Music To Life With 

The Release Of Latest Single “Undead Love”

Los Angeles, CA (April 13, 2020) – Atmospheric alternative rockers State To State (STS) are back with a howling new single that they describe as “a dirty, high-energy song about love and lust.” “Undead Love,” which is the band’s fourth official release and the second from a new collection of songs, will be available on all DSPs starting April 17. 

 

To create the singularly synergetic sound, the critically-acclaimed LA quintet, once again, joined forces with Grammy-nominated producer Johnny K (Disturbed, Plain White T's, 3 Doors Down) to record the latest material. According to frontman Shea Stratton, “Undead Love” was written in spurts over the course of about three months, leading to its frenetic albeit interconnected tone. 

 

“Usually, I don’t spend so much time finding the parts and bringing them together,” said Stratton. “This one was definitely a bit scatterbrained, but that different approach brought a different sound and feel to the song.”

 

“Undead Love” follows the successful release of STS’s first three singles including “We are the Reckless” STS’s editorial of the current state of politics in the USA which caught the attention of “The Howard Stern Show”, and “The Shifter” and “Get Away,” which led to the group’s meteoric rise just a few years after exploding on the LA music scene. Both “Shifter” and “Get Away” spent a collective 22 weeks in the top five and were voted #1 a total of seven weeks on LA’s legendary rock station, KROQ, on Kat Corbett’s “Locals Only”, which paved the way for national and international air play and even breaking the Top 40 in Lima, Peru. 

 

The band has also enjoyed sold out shows at the Troubadour and The Roxy and held residencies at The Hotel Café and The Viper Room. They’ve spent the past few years on the road – touring regionally and nationally – and performing at such high-profile festivals as the final Van’s Warped Tour and Milwaukee's Summerfest 2019 as direct support for Collective Soul and toured with multi-Platinum rock band Candlebox, which they are scheduled to do again this year. 

 

“As a band, and as musicians, we are continually evolving,” said Stratton. “Our new stuff has a bit of everything. A few songs have that tried and true State to State sound, but most are a departure for us.  From high-energy rockers to the slow burns of the dark and moody, this collection of songs is still considered atmospheric alternative rock.”

 

Part of STS’s evolution is the recent addition of new drummer William Driskill, Stratton’s sobriety and Bassist Patrick Morgan’s new role as a father – all of which the band says is paving the way for even more exciting things to come.
