State of Shock
Rock / Pop
Since the release of Money Honey, the first single from their sophomore album Life, Love & Lies, State of Shock have become the story of the year at Canadian radio from Victoria to St. John's. Money Honey has won the band a Canadian Juno Award Nomination for New Group of the Year, two Canadian Radio Music Awards in the category of Best New Group for both Rock and CHR formats, as well as a Canadian Indie Music Award for Favourite Single of the Year. The single has reached the platinum sales mark for digital sales in Canada and the band is enjoying a top-ten slot at Much Music and rock radio with its second single Hearts That Bleed.

Pretty heady stuff for a band that a year ago was wondering what the future held. They believed in themselves and made a commitment to each other and to the music that has brought them to this point. Investing all the money they made in their day jobs as well as all the credit they could get takes a serious amount of courage. Even with fancy computer programs and home recording equipment it still takes a lot of money to record an album as good as Life, Love & Lies. Top producer Jeff Dawson and great studios like the legendary Mushroom/Hipposonic & Bryan Adams' Warehouse are in great demand and don't come cheaply. One listen to the resulting album, though, proves it was worth it. Life, Love & Lies is full of great Pop/Rock songs with double hooks, wicked guitar lines and a driving bottom end that makes you move, even when you're sitting down.

Cordova Bay Records believed as well. As soon as they heard the album they set about wooing the band and eventually an agreement was reached. State of Shock and Cordova Bay Records are a great partnership.

Shortly after the release of Money Honey to radio, word of a possible tour with Nickelback reached the band and they set about winning that opportunity. The boys from Nickelback came to the Life, Love & Lies CD release party in Vancouver to see them play and before the night was over Chad could be seen on the dance floor singing along to Money Honey and the gig was theirs.

Two weeks afterLife, Love & Lies was released they set off for St. John's to begin six weeks opening for Nickelback on all of their Canadian tour dates. Additionally, they brought their show to every club and hideaway along the road, including the high profile gig at Sarnia Bayfest, appearing as the set up for Aerosmith in front of 27,000 people.

State of Shock is proving to be a hot item in the music scene with their contagious sound and high energy performances. Catch them this summer as they headline with Econoline Crush at a venue near you.
