“Fast becoming the ultimate protest band, State Radio successfully melds Bob Marley populism (‘Calling All Crows,’ ‘Bohemian Grove’) and Clash and Pearl Jam ire (‘Knights of Bostonia,’ ‘Let It Go’). (A-)” — Boston Herald


“Let It Go by State Radio is a wake-up call that will shake you out of your doldrums.
Not only does it rock your world musically, but it treats listeners like human beings
who have a brain with lyrics that are both intelligent and compassionate. It’s a reminder there’s still life in rock and roll and who the music really belongs to. Instead of being sponsored by some corporation, this album is brought to
you by the human spirit that allows us to believe in a better world.”

PRESS RELEASE:

September 29, 2009 (New York, NY) – Rock-trio and social activists STATE RADIO release their third studio album LET IT GO today and celebrate with a sold-out show in their home city of Boston to kick off their 35-city trek across North America. The tour dates include a stop at the Austin City Limits Festival on October 4 and two weeks supporting 311. The band also releases a special digital deluxe version of Let It Go on iTunes today. For a limited time, fans can purchase the new album plus a double disc Live at The Brattle Theater—a total of 41 tracks for $14.99. Live At The Brattle Theatre not only features live, acoustic State Radio songs and rarities, but also three Dispatch tracks, including “The General.”

State Radio is currently the #1 highlighted artist on Mashable’s “Free Music Monday” with their popular track “Calling All Crows,” a one-drop groove that calls the band’s legion of fans to attention. The track debuted at #6 on Billboard’s Top Singles Chart ahead of major acts like All American Rejects, Linkin Park and Paramore and has remained in the Top 100 for six weeks and counting. Addtionally, the anthemic “Knights Of Bostonia” has already been added to commercial alternative radio stations in the northeast. In the coming days, State Radio will also be releasing their second iPhone application powered by iLike, which will feature tracks, videos, photos, and additional exclusive content.



The band has also confirmed pre-show community service projects via their humanitarian organization, Calling All Crows, for 18 of the 35 tour markets so far. Like Rage Against The Machine and System Of A Down before them, State Radio roll up their sleeves as they practice what they preach, whether it’s riding bikes to gigs to support Bikes Not Bombs, hosting food drives in conjunction with Rock For A Remedy, adopting portions of beaches to ensure they are cleaned regularly, or playing shows to raise money for the Learning Center for the Deaf. On this slew of dates, the band and Calling All Crows will team up with local non-profit groups and participate in service like habitat restoration, sustainability tours and teach-ins.
