"RED STATES - RVA Music Scene's band of the month (July) "They can't seem to decide what genre they want to fall into but they write songs that masterfully fit together for a great listening experience. This diverse sound is what makes Red States such a great band."
“RED STATES - 757 Bandwire's band of the week!!! (January 21, 2013)”
“Got to see Red States at the Camel, who played possibly the best local performance I've ever seen.”
"RED STATES - RVA Music Scene's band of the week! (July 2, 2013)"
“Songs from these guys all seem to hold an odd sense of nostalgia – of wishing for times long gone and times not yet even realized. Americana infused indie rock that dissolves into much punker driving rhythms are the signature sound of this band’s evolving sound, a great Richmond act not to be missed.”
“This is a great band! Nothing flashy or gimmicky. Their sound is all over the place but is kept together with driving indie/punk/rock riffs with a dash of country/rock-a-billy. What ever you categorize them as, they make it work! This is a "Don't Miss" band. Period.”
“This is one of my favorite local bands!”
