The In Love With The Gun ep and The Centre Cannot Hold album are available on most digital stores and CDs on www.thestatemusic.com.
Formed in 2010 as the brainchild of Andy Guy, The State infuse industrial, electronic and post-punk with elements of goth and rock to create a dark, atmospheric soundscape with themes ranging from society and politics to isolation and abandonment ensuring a human connection.
The State’s first EP, In Love with the Gun, was released with November 2012 on Misanthropic Records, with the album ‘The Centre Cannot Hold’ following in June 2013. The State have become notorious for their elaborate stage shows that mix elements of music, film and theatre fused together with horror and intensity with video projections providing the backdrop for the band’s synthesisers, heavy guitars, samples and vocals. The band’s goal is to draw the audience into their bizarre but beautiful world, ensuring their live performances are as intense and rich as their studio works.
The State consists of Andy Guy (vocals, synth, samples, bass and guitar), Bryn Ford (guitar), Josh Van Der Heijden (drums) and James Hammond (percusssion). Andy Guy honed the idea for the band after having had several past band projects either as a member, producer or both. In 2011, he remixed ‘Scanner’ by Gary Numan as part of a contest for the Back to the Phuture concerts and won.
