Mates of State

There’s one thing you can say about bands who tour constantly: they love their music. Mates of State is one of those bands — and you’ll soon love their music, too. In antipication of the November release of their new EP and DVD, enjoy these songs, one off of each of their three albums. Kori Gardner and Jason Hammel are literally mates, and the things they do with a Yamaha organ and a drumkit will soon put you in another state. So that’s how they got their name…

  • I love to see Mates of State live. The first time I saw them, it was so obvious how much they love each other, my heart almost melted. Thanks for the heads up on the new EP.

  • shelly

    good sounds, thanks!

  • First time I heard their music was on Audiogalaxy, for no apparent reason. Since then, I've been addicted. Wish they'd tour here in Brazil!

  • I saw Mates of State live last year at the Meow Meow in Portland. The venue is a dark, dingy punk hole-in-the-wall, but I couldn't believe how those two filled up the room with so much sound!
    Their music is amazingly thick and rich for only two people. Team Boo was an incredible album, and I'm anxious to hear their new EP.
