State Champs Drop Second Single “Crystal Ball”

New York pop punk band State Champs are back in full swing, releasing a second single off their upcoming third studio album yesterday – and what a tune it is!

Crystal Ball premiered on Daniel P. Carter’s BBC Radio 1 Rock Show at 7pm GMT last night, and the love and responses from fans are already pouring in. Compared to throwing it back to the days of The Finer Things, this song has been made in true State Champs style, leaving the infectious singalong feel through the pop based beat and lyrics.

This next track comes after last month’s release of Dead And Gone, the first single off upcoming album Living Proof, due for release on June 15.

We didn’t think State Champs could get anymore State Champs than they already are, yet here we stand corrected. With a mix of the classic Around The World And Back album feels alongside All Time Low vibes, if these two songs are anything to go by, there is no doubt they’re going to be at the top of your pop punk summer playlist!

If you haven’t seen it yet, catch the music video for Dead And Gone below:

Feeling impatient? Don’t worry, you’ll have a likely chance of hearing these songs live just before official album release if you’ve got your tickets to this year’s Slam Dunk Festival for the below dates and cities:

Saturday 26th May – City Centre, Leeds (North)

Sunday 27th May – Hatfield Park, Hatfield (South)

Monday 28th May 0 – NEC, Birmingham (Midlands)


The album CD, LP and various merchandise bundles are available for pre-order from here – grab yours now because we can’t think of a reason why you shouldn’t.

(No one should be denied access to the incoming bops these guys are throwing our way. See below.)
