DS Exclusive: Oakland post-punks States Of Nature premiere new album, “Brighter Than Before”

Happy Valentine’s Day, comrades!

We’ve got a fun new album debut for all your Hump Day festivities. It comes to us from Oakland post-punks States Of Nature. It’s the quartet’s brand new full-length, Brighter Than Before, and it’s due out this Friday (February 16th) on Sell The Heart Records here in the States and on Little Rocket Records in the UK, but because we think you’re swell, we’ll share it with you today! Here’s what the band had to say about the record:

“Here it is, Brighter than Before in full! This is a record we spent the better part of 3 years on and it’s finally ready for you to enjoy. This is the best thing I think this band has made, we took great care in crafting a record that is enjoyable front to back and back to front, if that’s more your thing. 10 songs, 30 minutes, of “fookin’ rock n’ roll muzzziccc” keep slayn’, stop playin’, you misbehavin craven. I’m playn, you’re beautiful!” 

We here at DSHQ can promise you that Brighter Than Before is super fun and danceable and it’s chock full of infectious grooves. But don’t take our word for it…check it out down below! And while you’re at it, pick up your own copy on any of the super rad vinyl variants!


Their new 5-song banger Almost Hits just came out a few days ago and we’re premiering the music video for the opening track “Pepsi Youth”. Check that shit out below and head over to Bandcamp to listen to the full EP in all its glory. Also be sure to follow Who Asked For This? on Instagram.
