Pop punk band STATE CHAMPS has announced they will release a new acoustic EP titled The Acoustic Things October 7th on Pure Noise Records. The EP features re-worked versions from their critically acclaimed debut The Finer Things as well as two brand new tracks. State Champs will also be co-headlining the Pure Noise Records Tour this fall. A full track listing and list of tour dates can be seen below.
“The Acoustic Things is something we've wanted to do since the release of The Finer Things,” says vocalist Derek Discanio. “It showcases stripped down, unplugged versions of our songs as well as some new ones that no one has heard before. We're psyched to show everyone a different, unique side to SC.”
Derek is a cool dude. I saw them last October when they opened for Bayside and Motion City Soundtrack. We talked for a few minutes and he was very surprised to hear that I had been a fan of them since their debut EP. Such a cool guy and great band.
