  • Los Angeles rock band State to State creates melodic and atmospheric rock anthems. Formed in 2009, State to State draws influences from modern rock bands such as Queens of the Stone Age, Radiohead and Sigur Ros, as well as groups like Pink Floyd, early U2 and Jeff Buckley.
    The band — featuring vocalist and guitarist Shea Stratton, guitarist Andrew Orvis, bassist Patrick Morgan and drummer Michael Schneider — self-released its debut, full-length album "No Bounds" on Feb. 25.
    State to State will play at 9 p.m. Wednesday, March 19, at Club 66, 1951 Ashland St., Ashland. There is a $3 cover.
    Since the band is independent, they financed "No Bounds" themselves and spent a total of two years between pre-production, recording and mixing.
    "It wasn't planned to take this long, but we didn't want to release something that wasn't great," Schneider says. "We were pretty selective about what we put out."
    Songs such as the anthemic "Comprehension Headache" and "Bring Out Your Dead" feature a tight and dynamic foundation by Schneider and Morgan, while Stratton's voice and Orvis' lead guitar soar over the top.
    "We put a lot of effort and time into making this record," Schneider says. "We wanted to create something that would be sustainable and stay in people's collections for a long time."
