KICK OFF WINTER TOUR 02/22/08 IN NORTHHAMPTON, MA

State Radio
State Radio will return to the road February 22 in support of the release of their new album Year Of The Crow. Marking a partnership between State Radio's own Ruff Shod label and Nettwerk, Year Of The Crow - the follow-up to their 2006 debut Us Against The Crown - is due out February 5. The Boston-based trio will appear on NPR's popular "Day To Day" program for an interview and acoustic performance during the week of release.

The forthcoming dates follow the musically inventive and socio-politically conscious trio's recent Australian shows with Beautiful Girls, with whom State Radio - Chad Stokes (singer/guitarist), Chuck Fay (bass) and Mike "Mad Dog" Najarian (drums) - toured the U.S. last fall. The group will also bring their dynamic live show to the Langerado Music Festival March 8 at the Big Cypress Seminole Reservation. Following Langerado, the band head overseas for a European tour before returning to the America to perform at the Wakarusa Festival (June 5-8 in Lawrence, KS). In addition, look for the band to announce a slew of additional major U.S. festival dates soon.

In May, the trio will head back to the U.K. - where they recorded Year Of The Crow with renowned producer Tchad Blake (Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, Pearl Jam) - for the Give It A Name Festival on May 10 in Sheffield and May 11 in London. Following the Give It A Name Festival, State Radio will join Anti-Flag for a week-long U.K. tour culminating in a headlining show at King's College in London on Tuesday, May 20.
