Live Review: State Champs – Slam Dunk 2014

Slam-Dunk-Festival-2014State Champs must take the crown for generating the most energetic and boisterous crowd participation at this year’s festival.

Delivering tracks from their awesome debut album The Finer Things, hailed as one of the best pop-punk releases in recent years, the band display a distinctly catchier and edgier sound than the rest in the genre.

Top rated performances of their anthemic tracks Critical and Simple Existence helped to build the atmosphere to another level. The finale of Elevated led to a multitude of crowd suffers and some seriously ferocious mosh pits that saw bodies flying in all directions.

State Champs are no strangers to hard work, and rewarded their fans with a set that was evidently as much fun for the band as it was for the fans. The reception for this New York group and the sheer enjoyment of the crowd will live in the memory of many for a while to come, long after the bruises have faded.
