State Champs released Around The World And Back in 2015, and while we've loved their deluxe tracks from the record, we’re anxiously waiting for hints towards their next album—and it looks like they gave us just that.
The band shared a photo of themselves and Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus, meaning that their next full-length is shaping up to be an epic pop-punk masterpiece.
We eerily predicted this happening—on total accident, of course. We asked the world whether they felt more like Blink-182 or State Champs, and Mr. Mark Hoppus said he definitely felt like he was more State Champs.

Definitely State Champs, for me at least.

State Champs’ Tyler Szalkowski responded with a vague “the timing of this alt press poll is actually spooky,” and we truly had no idea what he meant.

Until this image was posted, and everything made total sense.

So, it appears as though our faves are working together, and that’s enough to get us stoked for their new record. Not to mention, State Champs previously announced that they’ll be working with All Time Low’s Alex Gaskarth on their new album, meaning this is shaping up to be quite the follow-up to Around The World And Back.
