STATES Announce Tour Dates with ROCKET SUMMER

photo by Ethan Luck

Alt-pop rockers States just announced that they will head out on tour supporting The Rocket Summer and The Scene Aesthetic.  Having toured with Circa Survive, Anberlin, Maps & Atlases, played 5 shows at SXSW 2012 and was a CMJ 2011 Festival buzz band, States cannot wait to get back on the road all summer long.

Fronted by Mindy White, States formed when indie-band Copeland called it quits.  Former members began a new adventure, acquiring Mindy White, formerly of Lydia. Consisting of White, Bryan Laurenson (guitar), Stephen Laurenson (guitar), Jonathan Bucklew (bass) and Dean Lorenz (drummer), States begins their 27-city tour on May 31st. in Seattle.  Luckily for us, they have two Los Angeles stops on June 5th at The Roxy and on June 6th at Pomona's Glass House.
