States, a heavy-hitting, rock perfect quintet led by the lovely Mindy White, have a mysterious website and facebook page that doesn’t reveal where they are from or when the band started, but none of that really matters, does it? We do know they’re taking off on a fall U.S. tour beginning today, as openers for emo heavies Circa Survive and Maps & Atlases. They’ll also be making a stop at NYC’s Sullivan Room for a promising CMJ showcase on October 21st.

They’re offering new track ‘Timebomb’ as a free download to whet your appetite for their full-length release of Room to Run, out October 18th. Check out the song here. (We can’t help but notice that the opening guitars are reminiscent of Silversun Pickups, not a bad thing).
