    Did Pure Noise ever deal with their whole "continuing to support abusers" situation?

    Real Friends will be very interesting to see with Cody doing vocals...I can't imagine him singing Dan's songs.

    State Champs needs to release a new album already. It also seems kinda strange they're headlining over FYS

    SC sold out that first Irving Plaza date before any support was even announced, they outdraw FYS at this point.

    Yeah, I'd argue Four Year Strong is a much better band than State Champs by a significant margin, but I'd never argue they're more popular.

    Also, whenever State Champs does get around to releasing a new album, I really hope they've finally improved. Around the World and Back and Living Proof both have a couple jams, but mostly consist of shitty filler tracks that have no personality.

    They actually seem to get worse with each release, and that's very sad to say after releasing one of the best pop-punk debut albums in recent history.

    This is exactly how I feel. I got on the State Champs bandwagon a little bit before The Finer Things, thought they were gonna blow and then that came out and I was sure of it. I’ve fallen off of them ever since, I thought it was just me but you described exactly how I feel about their last two albums — a couple standouts and the rest filler, background noise. I’ll still give anything new a listen, but I’m not itching to go see them live like I did once upon a time. I hope they can pull me back in!

    Agree that state champs albums have a lot of filler (sometimes the filler even gets promoted as a single, re: “Mine is Gold”). Not sure I agree that they’ve gotten worse with every release though. I get the evolution in sound that they’ve been trying to move towards and they’ve done a pretty nice job with it, picking the right co-writers/producers, etc. over time.

    FYS hasn’t been irrelevant, but they haven’t been anywhere near as popular since, idk, 07? Whenever all the music blogs were hyping “happy hardcore” and said that SYG/FYS/ADTR were the next big things lol.

    I disagree on State Champs. Thought around the world and back was great and is my favorite by them. That last record was pretty bland but

    Huh? State Champs improves with every album. Every song on The Finer Things sounds the same and the whole album blends together. The next 2 albums have better vocals, catchier hooks, and more diversity in the songwriting.

    I sorta agree that ATWAB was pretty generic with some filler, but I thought Living Proof was a pretty fantastic pop punk album cover to cover
