1 Multiply Not Divide
Welcome to The States: a Brooklyn-based rock trio whose sound has been described as the brains of Thom Yorke in the body of John Bonham. They are also a band with enough nerve to self-produce and finance their own debut album, Multiply Not Divide. This debut captures the raw energy and idealism of this ambitious young band. Recorded in just five days, it combines the best elements of The States’ virtuosic live performances with their attention to detail and adventurous song writing.

The States were formed by Chris Snyder (vocals and guitar) and Previn Warren (bass) in 2002 and solidified their lineup with the addition of Joe Stroll (drums) in 2004. In June 2004 The States won’s national “Best Unsigned Band Competition” out of a field of several hundred bands. As part of their prize, they flew to Hollywood, recorded a 3-song demo, and capped off the trip with a sold-out gig at the Knitting Factory in Los Angeles. Since then, they have recorded two self-produced EPs and have developed a loyal following while playing at some of the most noted rock clubs in the Northeast (including CBGBs, The Knitting Factory, and Arlene’s Grocery in New York, and TT the Bears Place and The Roxy in Boston).
