“’Outta My Head’ is a faster, nostalgic, rooty one for us. Drawing inspiration from the early 2000’s, we tried to execute an ear wormy energetic tune that could have easily been heard on the American Pie movies soundtrack, or other rom coms alike,” shares lead vocalist Derek DiScanio. “If you’re not singing the chorus by the third time it comes around, well, just hit the replay button, I suppose.”

The band have also announced a UK tour for May 2022.
You can see the band at the following dates:

  8 May Marble Factory Bristol
9 May Engine Rooms Southampton
11 May Electric Ballroom London
12 May Electric Ballroom London
14 May SWG3 Galvanisers Glasgow
15 May O2 Ritz Manchester

State Champs are hitting the road in the US this month, headlining the 2021 Pure Noise Tour with support from labelmates Four Year Strong, Real Friends, Just Friends and Bearings. 


State Champs has always embraced the idea of getting their music in front of as many people as possible. They aren’t running away from the sound they’ve established; if anything, it’s that scrappy punk spirit that drives them to continue to reach further and further. They’ve done pop arena tours, metal tours; they’ve even played a show on a beach. Wherever they turn up, they are going to be sincere and passionate. They are going to have fun. And moreover, so will you. This is an arena-ready band, capable of moving any kind of crowd, with the heart and soul of DIY freedom.


State Champs released their latest EP State Champs Unplugged in the summer of 2020 via Pure Noise Records. Featuring four new songs as well as two fan-favourite tracks from Living Proof, the EP is reflective of the diverse listening habits of the foursome, unapologetic about their love of everything from Pop to Country without sacrificing the upbeat enthusiasm of the central influences that first moved their collective souls. State Champs Unplugged is available to purchase at

State Champs is Derek DiScanio (Vocals), Tyler Szalkowski (Guitar), Ryan Scott Graham (Bass) and Evan Ambrosio (Drums).
