Formed in 2010 from his headquarters in the middle of nowhere in the east of England, The State became the brain child of Andy Guy as he fused industrial, rock, and post-punk into a dark and tortured alarm as a reaction to the current political and social climate.
Taking a cue from bands such as Nine Inch Nails, Rammstein, Marilyn Manson, The Cure and Gary Numan, The State aim to ensure that the live performances are as intense and rich as the studio works. An interweaving of heavy driven guitars with synths and samples creates a rich and varied tapestry with a goal to provoke and encourage people to question the political and social reality they find themselves in and perhaps do something about it.
The first release in to the world was a remix of “Scanner” by Gary Numan in 2011 as part of a contest judged by the artist himself and won. A further 2 albums, 3 Eps, and 5 singles have been released. The constant barrage of nightmares in the news has provided the backdrop for the current writing of new material as work on the third album continues due for release later this year.
