Industrial - Gothic - Post Punk
Formed in 2010 from their headquarters in 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.
Having just completed their second album, Ministry of Truth, they have switched gears towards taking the music live and the creativity involved in making an interesting performance.
However, with the constant barrage of political nightmares in the news of late, inspiration for new songs continues. The result of which will come to light as singles, double A sides, and EPs in the near future.

Tell me that the pain will stop
Tell me that the sun will rise
Tell me that I will feel again
Tell me that the world will not fall apart

These fairy tales
Stop telling me

Tell me that not all is lost
Tell me it can't rain all the time
Tell me that I will love again
Tell me that this can't be everything

These fairy tales
Stop telling me
