State Champs talk milestones, Halloween costumes and pop-punk legends they want to tour with

Sophie Dobschall August 7, 2019

It doesn’t happen all too often that my interviews are interrupted by viking wrestlers but I guess there’s a first time for everything and who could have been a better sport than State Champs! I caught Evan and Ryan at Download Fest as they continue riding that incredible wave of their well deserved success with their latest full length Living Proof.

Aside from getting yelled at by vikings, the members of State Champs compare European and American festivals, dream about touring with pop-punk legends, tell us whose Halloween outfit was totally ripped off by their support band that one year and where they’d go on a band holiday.

About The Author

German-bred, London-based, not American. Likes high quality banter and video interviews with a dash of photo pit. Sad songs are the best songs, especially within pop-punk, emo & alternative. Andrew W.K.’s party tips should be anyone’s life philosophy. Does not care that you hate her favorite band, Canadian pop-punk legends Simple Plan. Fight me.
