Mates of State have been around since 1997. If they haven’t honed their live skills by now, they never will. A band who have been going this long HAVE TO be great live. They’ve toured with Death Cab For Cutie, Jimmy Eat World, and played a huge number of festivals all over the world. This tour is part of their huge US tour in promotion of their great new album Mountaintops. I have never seen Mates of State live but I’m definitely excited and have no idea what to expect.
Their openers Other Lives are a band who I recently discovered from a live performance I saw online and they looked amazing. They’ve toured with bands such as Bon Iver and The Rosebuds which means they’ve absolutely got to be great live. They’re definitely looking to blow up soon so I would check them out while they’re not huge.
