Maybe it’s the sun being out, or maybe it’s just that these songs are really good; whatever it is, I’ve been enjoying this wave of pop-punk that’s being flowing recently and State Champs are no exception. Their new album Around the World and Back is out on October 16th – you can pre-order it here.

In September two more of pop-punk’s catchiest bands are touring the UK with State Champs: Roam and Knuckle Puck. Should be a great tour and hopefully I’ll get some interviews squeezed in with each band.
