After touring religiously for years off their sophomore album The Finer Things, State Champs has said that having new content has revitalized the band and their fans during live shows. As evidenced by the music video for the band’s brand new single “Slow Burn” (watch above), State Champs is all about having a good time, on and off stage. Fans have voiced a matching dedication:

If that’s not convincing enough, State Champs is nominated for three AP Awards this year. Derek DiScanio is up for Best Vocalist while band mate Ryan Scott Graham is nominated for Best Bassist. Also, State Champs’ “Losing Myself” music video is touted as one of the top five Best Music Videos of the year.

Against The Current returns to Charlotte ending a long-awaited four-month hiatus. The Chrissy Costanza fronted three-piece exudes an aura of superstardom. Their upbeat pop-punk vibe is irresistible and with every note there’s the feel that the band is just one chorus away from pleasantly infecting the world’s headphones.

The Poughkeepsie natives released their debut album, In Our Bones, nearly one year ago to date and have been greeted with a warm welcome in every country they’ve visited since… Charlotte is no exception.

For the last 20-plus years, Warped Tour has always been referred to as a “leaping pad” or “trampoline” for up-and-coming bands on the circuit. There isn’t a band from last year’s lineup that embodies that mantra more than Australian foursome With Confidence. The pop-punk four-piece has blown up since embarking on the three-month summer extravaganza. Frontman Jayden Seeley admitted that he “didn’t expect to be headlining across the world,” but fortunately that’s With Confidence’s reality. The band recently turned heads after finishing up a European headliner that sold out shows left and right. The band now returns to U.S. for the first time since Warped Tour.
