Fresh from their first London headline gig at the Islington State Lights follow their recent sold out Whelan’s (Dublin) headline show by announcing a headline show at The Button Factory In Dublin on Thursday 16th October.
Showcasing a sound readymade for big arenas reminiscent of a modern day Coldplay mixed with the melodic beats of Kygo their last release “Open Your Arms” represented the sound of a Band primed for a big international breakthrough.
Last year the band released “Peace Will Come,” a single supported by 2FM, featured as the Homegrown Hero and Artist of the Week on Today FM, led to a performance on ‘The Late Late Show’ and tallied substantial airplay and support from KROQ Los Angeles, Radio X (UK) and a host of other International radio stations. This led to a spot at the prestigious Electric Arena Stage at Electric Picnic where they shared the stage with The Kooks, St Vincent and Cigarettes after Sex and followed this up with support slots with The Fratellis and The Academic.
State Lights formed three years ago at BIMM College in Dublin, bonding over a shared interest in classic pop music and a common desire to write big stadium sized songs the guys decided to work on a music project. Members include singer Shobsy, guitarist Joe Regan, drummer Paul Ridgeway and bassist Noel Perry.
“State Lights - Dublin band whose set is full of bracing, assured rock/pop tunes and who already have a sound which is aiming for stadiums and arenas. Frontman Shobsy’s voice is one of their key assets, but the musicianship underpinning the songs is also pretty striking at this early stage. The sound of a potentially very large crowd" - Jim Carroll, RTE
“With powerhouse vocals that rival the enchanting beauty of Freddie Mercury and George Michael, State Lights write songs that send your spirits soaring” – HotPress
