The State Lottery-Fistfuls of Sand

Fistfuls of Sand

Posted in Albums on April 11th, 2012

Maybe more similar to our first record than our recent records. Our take on the "wall of sound." We recorded this last year in Detroit with Andrew Davis. I think both of these songs came out great and I've been really excited about people hearing them! I missed my dad's 60th birthday party to record this! I'm a...

Footage from us making burritos at El & Tim's in Portsmouth, UK. This is off our recent full length "When the Night Comes", which you can download for free on this very site.

When the Night Comes

Posted in Albums on June 7th, 2010

Dark times. An abundance of emotional capital, but not many other resources to speak of. Where to go? What to do? We wrestle with straightforward questions like they're real live alligators. It takes a toll, physically. One day you look in the mirror and you're staring at the beginning of mortality. Comes a...

The State Lottery-Cities We

Cities We're Not From

Posted in Albums on February 1st, 2009

These guys are spread out as per the diaspora of punk, hailing from different areas of the midwest and New York City. They play an extremely melodic, yet aggressive brand of punk rock that harkens back to M-Blanket and asks "what if Jawbreaker's first few records had good production quality?" The instrumentation is very dramatic and mature, complete with a...

In honor of the Don's birthday, I'm going to let the state lottery pink couch out of it's holding cell. Unfortunately he's not in the recording at all. This is the title track off of their recent record on Salinas Records.
