Although they have released only one album and one EP, The Stereo State have announced that they have decided to call it a day. The split will be coincided with one show in Chicopee, Massachusetts on September 7th and an appearance at the Fest 12 in Gainesville, Florida. The band’s drummer Brandon Spence posted the following break up statement on their Facebook:
“It kills every one of us to say this but unfortunately The Stereo State will not continue past the end of the year. Andy (Frongillo, vocalist) has decided to move on to bigger and better things and we will not play under the moniker “The Stereo State” without him. We were lucky enough to pick up the Usher Raymond of punk rock to start this band. Gabe, Matt, and I have been playing music together since middle school and we will NEVER stop. Pat is the newest member of our family and I hope he will continue on future endeavors with us (whatever that may be). Can’t stop, won’t stop! The Stereo State will be playing a benefit show in Chicopee MA for the Amanda Plasse benefit (rest in peace) on September 7th. We will also be playing FEST12 in Gainesville FL. Thank you everyone for your support, a place to crash, a beer, an arm wrestling match against a dwarf…anything and everything. You all have been the best. That is why we’ve been hustlin for all these years. Cheers, and thank you again. Let’s go out with a bang! From all sides of our hearts we love you all and we will see you soon.“
Rest in peace, The Stereo State!
