40. STATESIDE
STAND CLEAR OF THE CLOSING DOORS
SELF-RELEASED

Making waves in the NYC scene, Stateside comes out swinging on their 11-track presentation STAND CLEAR OF THE CLOSING DOORS. This Big Apple quartet lets loose with a blend of heartfelt heaviness and sincere tenderness yielding the kind of commercially viable power that encourages saccharine-enriched group sing-alongs as well as the ability to effectively channel Blink 182 when covering Taylor Swift’s “Love Story”. Enhanced with keen pop sensibilities embedded into their songwriting, beyond their creamy choruses and slick sounding anthems, Stateside exhibits they can pack a satisfying screamo punch as well as produce a proper pop-punk payoff to keep fans of the first wave of post-hardcore Warped Tour veteran bands like Thursday, Saves The Day, and Saosin coming back for more. -MikeSOS
