State Champs have revealed details of their new album! Living Proof is set for release through Pure Noise Records on June 15!

Living Proof is album number three for the pop punks since their 2010 formation and their most ambitious work to date. Frontman Derek DiScanio says; “It was like, let’s take as many swings at it, try as many new things and experiment, until we get to the point where we could start searching through it all and then find the album.”

The album writing and recording process, which was done in two halves with Around The World And Back producers Mike Green and Kyle Black and the legendary talent that is John Feldmann as well as teaming up with All Time Low‘s Alex Gaskarth, had some surprises for the band themselves, including Blink 182‘s Mark Hoppus popping by to write some lyrics and even lay down some vocals! Derek recalls; “We had no idea he was even coming in. Then the next day, me and Mark Hoppus are just sitting out by John Feldmann’s pool writing lyrics from scratch. And that ultimately ended up being ‘Dead And Gone,’ which is the first single on the record.”

Speaking of Dead And Gone, the track has been released to the public alongside the album announcement as a taste of what is to come. Check it out below;
