As a new generation of fans discover a world of danger-flecked rock n’roll more compelling and exotic than the pop and pseudo-punk they’ve been spoon fed to date, STATES OF PANIC are perfectly positioned to take their message to the masses. Merely tipping the hat to monsters of rock past, STATES OF PANIC have twisted their sounds into something youthful, new and as yet unheard.
Their razor sharp look and street ready desire to entertain meet a precision and outrageous musicality that’s framed in modern metal. There’s the fervour of My Chemical Romance coupled with the slick presentation of Kill Hannah and Blessed By A Broken Heart, while their universal, rallying-the-clans commerciality echoes that of Black Veil Brides.
The show is on. You’d be wise to get to the front of the queue…
