Formed in 2010 from their headquarters in the east of England, The State fuse industrial, rock, and post-punk into a dark and tortured alarm as a reaction to the current political and social climate.
Taking their cue from bands such as Nine Inch Nails, Rammstein, Marilyn Manson, The Cure and Gary Numan, The State aim to ensure that their live performances are as intense and rich as their studio works. They interweave heavy driven guitars with synths and samples to create a rich and varied tapestry. Their goal is to provoke and encourage people to question the political and social reality they find themselves in and perhaps do something about it.
With the completion of their second album, Ministry of Truth, their focus now rests on taking the music live and the creativity involved in making an interesting show. The constant barrage of nightmares in the news provides regular inspiration for new material being written between live dates. The result of which will come to light as singles, double A sides, and EPs in the near future.
