Story so far is already there man. They've had a better showing at events than most pop punk acts that I've seen in at least 2 years and they just opened for NFG's Sticks and Stones tour. Really can't get any better than that for a pop punk band except for warped tour, which is the next step for them.
State Champs are extremely good as well though and when I lived in upstate NY they were garnering a hell of a following but I think had some line up issues. If they can keep up the pace and a decent line up they'll be up there in no time.
