State Of Man

Formed in Atlanta in 2000, the four members of State Of Man originally bonded over their common sense of professionalism and love of ‘90s rock legends. But unlike many young bands, who expect rapid success and give up when million-dollar deals don’t rain from the heavens, State Of Man kept plugging away, racking up a series of accomplishments ranging from Rolling Stone appearances and becoming the face of GBX Shoe’s Rock Line to landing a single on the Billboard charts. The band’s chemistry has never been more potent than on their new album In This Place. Produced by Rick Beato, the disc features a bevy of instantly memorable anthems ranging from the devotional “Be Still (My Heart)”, (which they dedicated to American soldiers on the band’s overseas AFE tour) and the conciliatory “I Have Forgiven” to the inspirational title track. But perhaps no song on In This Place has proven more helpful than the arena-ready epic, “Swallow Your Fears.” Whether it’s a therapist playing the song to help teens in a suicide prevention program or Adam Bush, who produced a State Of Man video before dying of leukemia in February of 2008, the song has provided a beacon of hope for people caught up in life-or-death struggles, assuring them that “you don’t have to be alone” if you “swallow the things that hold you back from living life.” For additional information: Download your copy of "Swallow Youe Freas" on iTunes here: "State of Man is a refreshing breath of energy and life that moves through you with every song. From the passion of each word in their lyrics to the strength of their music, State of Man gives you exactly what you want and what you didn't even know you needed." -Cindy Simmons | Star94 (94.1FM Atlanta, GA) Cindy & Ray Show "One of the East coast's premier acts." - Billy Zero | Director XMU | XM Satellite Radio Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
