A well-crafted rock sound and powerful live shows have gained Atlanta-based rock band State of Man a reputation for being “one of the East coast’s premier acts” (XM Satellite Radio).

The band's music combines driving guitars, soulful vocals, and syncopated bass and drums, resulting in a sound described by Kings of A& as “powerful, yet soulful modern rock/alternative.” State of Man’s full-length debut CD, “Lose Your Mind,” gained the attention of Atlanta platinum producer Rick Beato and multi-platinum, Grammy award winning producer Don McCollister, who each recorded tracks for their EP, "More Than Coincidence," the band's maxi-single "Swallow Your Fears" (charting in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart, June 24 issue) and the latest full length release "Both Sides of the Story."

The strength of the band’s live show has lead to a reputation for being "One of the best live bands in the Southeast… period" (Southern Jam Online). Performing at venues and festivals domestically and internationally, State of Man continues to build its fan base while touring in support of the latest release "Both Sides of the Story!"

You need this CD !!!
First off, really enjoyed seeing you guys in Valdosta this past weekend. As usual, the energy was great, the music was beyond description and the connection with the crowd was what all bands should strive to have. I am a 45 year old 11 yr veteran of radio broadcasting. I can say that I have previewed thousands of CD's and without a doubt this is one of the top 10. Not since Boston released their self titled offering has a band released a CD that you can put in the player, turn it up, and let each trac tell its story. The levels were perfect, the bass, drums and guitar each had their own identity yet they flowed together like two smooth rivers meeting. And the vocals, ahh the vocals. Crisp, clear, yet powerful and raw. It was well worth waiting on and I am glad that I was able to get one so soon. Keep up the great work and hope top see you in the ATL soon. Oh, and if you need someone to shoot some video for you and I am around, give me the camera. I saw a load of missed shots that needed taking. You have to get up in the band to shoot good video of the band. Not just in the crowd.

I love State of Man
This cd is amazing. It's so emotional and touching. It shows the depth of the people of the band. Have seen a few shows and if you like the cd see the shows. Trying to spread the word about som in NJ any one interested just ask me!!!


Powerful, unique, infectious
State of Man's Both Sides of the Story is consistently excellent. I don't skip any tracks. Vocals are unique and sweet. Melodies stick in your head. And they've achieved the illusive infectious groove. My favorite cut in Be Still. Hey, have you guys realized the gospel potential of Bound in Chains? I'm sure you have. Nice work, dudes.

unflippin' believable... deployed for Operation Iraqi Freedom... working out in the gym... battery died in the MP3 player and I was forced to listen to the usual gym staff garbage piped in over the speakers... well turns out one of them has some incredible taste, and worked with these cats on a USO tour in Japan... do I need to say I'm hooked? I stopped my work out and went to find out who they were... been advertising to friends and family at home in Paso Robles / San Luis Obispo / Fresno, CA every since. Best sound to come out in years, great work!
