It is September 29th 2013 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
Over the past three years, State Champs have been proving their talent and dedication throughout the music industry. And, with their newest CD just a week away from being released, this band has snagged this week's 'Song of the Week' spot with their song Elevated.
From Albany, New York, State Champs is made up of Derek Discanio (vocals), Tony Diaz (guitar), Tyler Szalkowsk (guitar), William Goodermote (bass) and Evan Ambrosio (drums). And, together these five have been impressing fans, literally all around the world.
On August 17th 2010 State Champs released their first, self-titled EP, which helped carve a niche in the music scene for the guys. Then, by the time of their second EP release, on September 11th 2012, titled Overslept, the band's fan base was steadily growing.
Now, this pop/punk band is gearing up to drop their newest album, which will be titled The Finer Things. The Finer Things is set to be released on October 8th 2013 and will showcase eleven songs. And, let's face it, if the rest of the album is like the first track, Elevated, it will be well worth the wait.
Elevated, the song earning this week's 'Song of the Week' spot, instantly caught my attention the first time I hit 'play' on the official music video on Youtube. The video, which shows the band as they played the July 11th 2013 Mansfield, Massachusetts date of the 2013 Vans Warped Tour, is a great addition to the [already superb] song. Plus, the [just over] seventy two thousand fans who have already viewed the official music video on Youtube would probably agree.
State Champs, who are signed to Pure Noise Records, released Elevated to their iTunes page on August 22nd 2013. And, of course, the song has been keeping fans on the edge of their seats, just like myself, for the release of their full length album.
So, even though October 8th 2013 is coming up, it seriously cannot come fast enough. With what these guys have released so far, I know this album will be nothing but phenomenal.
These guys certainly earned this week's title of 'Song of the Week'.
While we all wait for the release of The Finer Things, set out October 8th 2013, why not check out the official music video for Elevated, which can be found on the band's Youtube Channel, here:
See you next Sunday when we announce which artist or band will be taking home the 'Song of the Week' spot on the Basement Entertainment official website. Meanwhile, head on over to State Champ's official website, Facebook, Twitter and Youtube Channel and make sure you follow this band's every move.
