State Champs are bringing the Living Proof Tour to North America next month. Kicking off on March 1st in Chicago, IL, the New York Pop-Punkers will be delivering their well-known larger than life stage energy combined with some of their biggest stage productions yet to cities across the United States. Delivering high-voltage versions of tracks from their latest release like fan-favorites “Dead and Gone“, “Our Time To Go” and “Criminal“, the 5-piece band will be supported by Our Last Night, The Dangerous Summer and Grayscale. Multiple cities have already sold out, with all remaining tickets on sale now at http://www.statechampsny.com/.
The upcoming tour is in celebration of the band’s third studio album, Living Proof. Released last Summer via Pure Noise Records, the 13-track collection is the most ambitious and cohesive work in the band’s catalog. While securing the #9 Top Current Albums, #28 Top 200 and #3 Rock Billboard charting positions, this album has seen impressive praise from fans and press alike.

While creating Living Proof, State Champs went back to their roots, writing and recording in garages while also collaborating with Mike Green and Kyle Black as they did for Around The World And Back. They didn’t shy away from new experiences either, working with legendary producer John Feldmann (Blink-182, Good Charlotte) for the first time while additional contributions came in the form of writing sessions with Alex Gaskarth (All Time Low) and Mark Hoppus (Blink-182). On an album full of go-for-broke moments, State Champs pushed themselves to new heights without ever forgetting where they came from.
Living Proof is a record about coming out the other side those experiences, both triumphant and humbled. That growth is palpable, as State Champs made a record that’s like nothing they’ve done before, but is still an album that only they could ever make.

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