Sometimes Youtubers and our favorite bands collide, and when they do, the results are pretty epic.

Earlier this week a Youtuber by the name of Michelle Khare uploaded a video about joining a pop-punk band, and it’s safe to say that she lived all of our dreams in the span of the 10-minute video.

Titled I Joined A Pop Punk Band For A Week, Khare captured her experience of joining one of our fave bands, State Champs as they prepped for the release of their latest album Living Proof and the Vans Warped Tour.

During the video, you can watch Khare learn about what it’s like touring on a bus, how difficult it can be translating recorded songs to live performances and how challenging it can be to actually play those instruments.

When all is said and done, Khare then was able to join the band on one of the stop of the Vans Warped Tour and honestly, we wish we were there.

You can watch all that, and see Khare perform “Criminal” with the band below!

State Champs recently dropped Living Proof, their latest full-length effort. You can grab your copy of it here!

State Champs are currently playing the final cross-country run of the Vans Warped Tour. In addition to Warped, the band will also be playing a few shows with Blink-182! Check out dates for both tour below!
