‘Golden State have wrapped themselves in a huge blanket of anthemic brilliance’ - MUSIC WEEK
‘Masters of big rock’ - ARTROCKER
‘It’s a very huge rock sound, with great production to match the anthemic-style writing’ - CLASH
‘Catchy and Infectious – it takes The Big Music of the 80’s, twanging Bunnymen guitars, sky scraping Lillywhite-esque production, Eno-style atoms – and gives it a 21st Century twerk.’ - CLASSIC ROCK
‘Division’ is the deeply emotive debut album from Californian kings of anthemic rock, Golden State. It is set for release through State Champ Records on 31st March and showcases the bands unique ability to tell a story through their trademark stadium rock. Following the success of EP‘Subdivision,’ and follow up single ‘World On Fire,’ the album continues an impressive run of releases, brimming with soaring, poetic choruses that float serenely over powerful drums and etch on your memory.
Golden State have in the past been compared to the likes of Muse and Echo and the Bunnymen but their sound is very much their own. The band are no strangers to the industry and include members of the Rick Rubin produced Paloalto and Florida rock band Red Jumpsuit Apparatus.
Live UK dates to be announced soon
