A well-crafted rock sound and powerful live shows have gained Atlanta-based rock band State of Man a reputation for being ?one of the East coast?s premier acts? (XM Satellite Radio).
The band?s music combines driving guitars, soulful vocals, and syncopated bass and drums, resulting in a sound described by Kings of A&R.com as ?powerful, yet soulful modern rock/alternative that sounds like a cross between Sevendust, Fuel, 3 Doors Down and Saliva.? State of Man?s full-length debut CD, ?Lose Your Mind,? gained the attention of Atlanta platinum producer Rick Beato (Shinedown; I Nine; Vince Neil; Jump, Little Children; The Working Title; Flickerstick) and multi-platinum, grammy award winning producer Don McCollister (Sister Hazel, Indigo Girls, Third Day, Shawn Mullins), who each recorded tracks for their EP, "More Than Coincidence," the band?s maxi-single "Swallow Your Fears" (charting in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart, June 24 issue) and the forth-coming full length "Both Sides of the Story."
The strength of the band?s live show has lead to local and regional band competition titles as well as a reputation for being "One of the best live bands in the Southeast? period" (Southern Jam Online). Performing at venues and festivals across the nation with such artists as Live, Kid Rock, Stone Temple Pilots, No Doubt, Train, Shinedown, Hoobastank, Puddle of Mudd, Earshot, Pink, Better Than Ezra, Garbage, Silvertide and at Budweiser True Music events (like the world-wide broadcast of ONE NIGHT STAND in Atlanta, GA w/ NASCAR?s Dale Earhardt JR.), State of Man continues to build its fan base while touring in support of the new maxi-single (4 songs), "Swallow Your Fears", and an upcoming full length release (due late Summer 2006).
