State Champs have announced details of their new album Kings Of The New Age, which is set for release on 13th May 2022 via Pure Noise Records.
The band says of their forthcoming album which features guest vocalists including Chrissy Costanza and Four Year Strong: “Kings of The New Age is our fourth album, the one that we spent the most time on, and the one that makes the biggest statement. After writing over 30 songs, we narrowed it down to 11 that best represent our mission as a band, and sonically, match the energy level we wanted to captivate heading into this new chapter”.
State Champs add: “Lyrically, KOTNA is a reflection on the past few years during a very weird time. However, it is also a reminder that we’re only here for so long. Although we will always live and learn by trial and error in areas like friendships, family, careers, relationships, etc, there’s no time for toxicity and negativity when a certain opportunity presents itself. Never waste a moment that can be seized. Times are changing, culture is evolving, and we’re happy to provide the soundtrack and let you know that we’re Here To Stay. Welcome to The New Age”
Alongside the album announcement, the band have released a video for their new single Everybody But You which features Neck Deep’s Ben Barlow. “Lyrically, ‘Everybody But You’ reflects on the back and forth of an overly toxic relationship, and after all that exhaustion, what better way to move on from someone than throwing a massive party with your friends? We also were heavily involved with the creative side of the music video treatment and direction in which we had a lot of fun portraying the concept and message of the song (and partying.),” they say of the track.
Check out the video featuring appearances from Tyler Posey, Lil Aaron, Kelen Capener of The Story So Far and more!
