Santa Rosa, CA’s State Faults (formerly Brother Bear) is heading out on tour in support of their upcoming debut full-length, Desolate Peaks. The album will see a Spring release on Tiny Engines (Tigers Jaw, CSTVT, Look Mexico, Restorations).
Head over to Alternative Press to here the exclusive premeiere of “Arrowhead” from Desolate Peaks.
Desolate Peaks will be the follow up to the band’s debut EP, Head In The Clouds, which can still be downloaded for free. You can also check out a demo of the track “Vespers”. A new, re-recorded version of the song will appear on Desolate Peaks.
State Faults consists of four soulmates with a DIY ethic trying to make honest and explosive music. Formed in early 2010, the group immediately began writing and recording music within the cramped confines of a 2nd floor apartment. Huddled together in the California heat, the group created a tightly knit sound, drawing upon elements of 90’s emo and post-hardcore. Those early days gave birth to the band’s impressive self-released debut EP, Head In The Clouds. Released in late 2010, the EP quickly spread through word of mouth and State Faults continue to cultivate a devoted following. In what can only be described as an advancement of the sound created on Head In The Clouds, Desolate Peaks promises to take State Faults to new levels.
Stay tuned for artwork, tracklisting and more exclusive song premieres from State Faults’ Desolate Peaks!
