State Of You Release New Single, ‘Bloody Party’

UK rock’n’roll upstarts State Of You have released a final taster of their self-titled debut EP, which is set for release this Friday. “’Blood Party’ came together very quickly and is a straight up party anthem,” says vocalist Steve Sitkowski. “It’s about wanting to get involved in life, to get hurt by it and to just accept the experience. I believe we only live once so now’s the time to listen to yourself and do whatever it is you want to do. Nick and I were working on the lyrics until 3AM on the day we recorded it. We were staying in a house we rented for the band and were both whisper-screaming lyrics to the instrumental demo playing when Max walked in. We both instantly apologised to him thinking we had woken him up but he just wanted some water. I thought we were in trouble at first, like two kids staying up late at a sleepover.” 

This new cut follows the release of State Of You’s massively entertaining music video for ‘The Perfect Storm’ where band members’ old lady alter egos embark upon a tea party with a difference. The song itself does explore a serious issue as Sitkowski explains it’s “about living with undiagnosed ADHD for most of my life and the destructive relationships I’ve been in because of that. I was constantly using drugs to get away from myself and being in a dark place most of the time – That feeling of not belonging, being incapable of functioning in the real world and not being able to figure out why.”

State Of You Unleash New Track, ‘The Perfect Storm’

Having recently debuted their first ever single ‘Run’, burgeoning UK rock act State Of You have unleashed another high octane track titled ‘The Perfect Storm’“This song is about living with undiagnosed ADHD for most of my life and the destructive relationships I’ve been in because of that,” explains vocalist Steve Sitkowski of its visceral inspiration. “I was constantly using drugs to get away from myself and being in a dark place most of the time – That feeling of not belonging, being incapable of functioning in the real world and not being able to figure out why.”

With a shared desire to write straight-up rock ‘n’ roll songs (Sitkowski emphatically and proudly growls “This is British rock’n’roll” on ‘The Perfect Storm’), with the purpose of expelling personal demons, and to provoke discussion around issues in the world today, State Of You have risen from the ashes of several much-loved underground UK bands including Outcry Collective, Polar and Hildamay. Their two newly released tracks will be included on their forthcoming self-titled debut EP, set for release 02 September via Silent Cult Recordings.
