A Social State is a four piece indie rock outfit hailing from Scranton, PA. The band first came together in late 2009. All four members from A Social State all came from different local bands surrounding Scranton and Wilkes-Barre. What was initially supposed to be a "friendly jam session" quickly spawned a band. Within the first three months of being active, the band released a self produced, self titled, six song EP. Local Reception of the bands first effort was very positive, songs such as "Faceless" and "Body Made of Wood" from the EP would slowly become local favorites. After playing a number of shows, and a 10 day tour, the band decided to start recording a full length album. For 8 months the band slowly sifted through 40+ songs, eventually narrowing it down to 13 (what they thought would become their full length album). But after months of recording, the band had become irritated, and unsatisfied with the recordings. All 13 songs from that album were then scrapped for 12 new songs, and a brand new concept for what would become "Everyone's Your Friend".
