Since celebrating their first ten years as a band last year with UNPLUGGED, State Champs have been making the best of their time during the pandemic and focused on making the next ten even better than before. The US pop punkers have just dropped their brand new single ‘Just Sound’ and if you’ve been there for the band all this time then buckle in for even more anniversary celebrations because you’re in for a good time.
‘Just Sound’ picks up where Living Proof left off with an undeniably catchy hook, and off the back of four albums, it is ever so apparent that State Champs are content with the sound they’ve finetuned over the years. Lyrically, the song could easily be inspired by the amount of social distancing the world’s had to endure and eventually growing accustomed to being apart from loved ones.
With that being said, it feels pretty great to finally hear a new State Champs song again and I’m definitely excited for what Derek, Evan, Ryan and Tyler have planned with album #4. ‘Just Sound’ is definitely a song for the ages and you should all play this juicy banger for days until the new Champs record comes to life.
