Their first studio album, Room to Run, was released on October 18, 2011. On September 7 2011, they released a video of the song "Time Bomb" from their upcoming album on Youtube. “There are those rare moments in life where things work out just the way you want them to. For us, States is exactly that. In the wake of moving on from our amazing pasts (both Copeland and Lydia), we were blessed by perfect timing. What you hear now is the product of us experimenting and recording demos at home. Our goal is to get our songs out there as soon as possible, and to be heading into the studio soon after. This is our future, and we are so excited for you guys to be here at the start of it. We will be writing, recording, playing, and sharing our progress with you all. We hope that you become a part of this new chapter in our lives, and we can’t wait to see you all soon.” 2) "States" was also a power pop band that released only 2 albums. The 10 track one named "Picture me with you" was released on 1981 and produced by John Ryan for Chicago Kid Productions.
