“Singer Nickolas Blazina definitely has one of the best voices in Chicago music.”
~ CHICAGO MUSIC MAGAZINE
"The intersection of State and Madison downtown is the zero point of the street grid. The music of local rockers State and Madison is the intersection of impassioned hooks and snappy riffs."
~ CHICAGO SUN TIMES
Slated for release late 2018, STATE AND MADISON is charting a course toward a 2nd full length album, entitled WE ARE TWO PARTS OF THE SAME THING.
Produced by NICKOLAS BLAZINA, and mixed by longtime friend and collaborator J. HALL (As Cities Burn, Hidden Hospitals, Everything In Slow Motion, House of Heroes), the new LP finds the band digging further into the influences they hold dearest to their hearts. While the band's first LP Tar & Feather felt like a marriage between the past and present, ...TWO PARTS... tears forth from the first track "Be. Here. Now." with a fever unlike any STATE AND MADISON record before it. With a tip of the hat to artists like Jimmy Eat World, Silverchair, Thrice, and Acceptance - these 10 songs find the band still etching its own name into stone ~ inspired by some of the best rock bands of our time.
