State Champs announce UK tour and share new video

New single Mine Is Gold is taken off the band’s upcoming new album Living Proof.

Pop punk heroes State Champs have released new song Mine Is Gold. The song, which originally premiered on Billboard, is taken from the bands new album Living Proof out 15 June 2018 via Pure Noise Records.

The song is about being bullied and doubted – singer Derek DiScanio explains, “If you’ve ever been betrayed, bullied, or doubted by someone close to you, Mine Is Gold is for you. This one hits home for us in a range of ways and gives us a sense of pride after the musical risk we took on the chorus of this song especially. We took a lot of influence from bands like Cartel and Saves The Day on this song and the way they can shape dynamics and changes in energy.”

As well as releasing Mine Is Gold State Champs have announced a headline UK tour this October with support from Seaway, Stand Atlantic and Woes.

“After a long cycle on Around The World and Back, we’re excited about being back to Europe with Living Proof out in the world. We’ve got a whole new batch of songs, bigger and better production than we’ve ever done, as well as a new attitude. Europe has always proved to us that it is a place that loves Champs and we fully recognise and appreciate that, which is why we will never stop coming. See you soon!” says bassist Ryan Scott Graham.
