State Champs’ new track ‘Crystal Ball’ is a slice of pop punk perfection
Ahead of the release of their highly anticipated upcoming album Living Proof, pop punk’s modern trailblazers State Champs have dropped their second single off the record, ‘Crystal Ball’.
The track was premiered on Daniel P Carter’s BBC Rock Show – it may seem like a premature claim (considering it’s only May), however, the song is showing potential to take out the crown for Pop Punk Single Of The Year.
‘Crystal Ball’ showcases the band’s massive proclivity for writing soaring hooks, amping the driving characteristics of modern pop punk with a fearsome intensity, featuring nifty guitar leads, sleek production and a powerhouse vocal performance. This is the kind of heart-on-your-sleeve pop punk track that gets kids crying, finger pointing and moshing all at the same time – it was like it was written with the last day of Warped Tour in mind, totally sentimental and bittersweet.
Living Proof is set to drop June 15, the follow up to the band’s 2015 effort Around The World And Back that saw them catapult to the heights of scene-superstardom.
