State Champs Celebrates 10 Years of Music with Live Virtual Show
After a decade of music, Capital Region pop rockers State Champs are celebrating memories and “even some madness with fans” this summer. State Champs will be releasing State Champs Unplugged, a 6-track EP of “stripped-down” versions of four brand new songs. This will also include two fan-favorite tracks from Living Proof, due out August 14.
The band also announced in a statement that they will be streaming a live show online for fans.
“We’re excited to Celebrate our 10th Birthday as a band in the best fashion: An interactive online variety show where we get to hang out with fans, perform, reminisce, and tell stories from the past 10 years,” shares vocalist Derek DiScanio in a statement. “We’ll be bringing in some surprise guests, and even premiering new music. That’s right, those who purchase tickets to the event will be the first to hear some brand new tunes and music videos from our upcoming Unplugged EP. There will be exclusive merch deals right on the event page and we’ll top the night off with a live Q&A hangout with everyone. This is the most unique event we’ve ever thrown and we can’t wait to share it with everyone as we ring in the next chapter of Champs.”
When virtual concert-goers purchase tickets for the live event, there will also be the opportunity to pre-order the EP at www.statechampsny.com. And if you love discounts and love to vote, the band has partnered with HeadCount to offer a 50% discount on tickets for all fans who register to vote.

“The Unplugged EP is special for us for many reasons, one main reason being the writing process. We feel like we really went back to our roots, you know, just the band, in a room with an acoustic guitar, writing songs and having fun,” shared DiScanio on the upcoming EP. “We tend to execute our best material in an environment that is stress free and organic. Our fans have been asking for new acoustic, stripped down material for quite some time, we’re happy to say it’s here.”
