STATE FAULTS – On Tour / “Sleeptalker” Video

Desolate Peaks: out now on Tiny Engines
• “Sleeptalker” Video Premiere on Toxicbreed’s Funhouse

Santa Rosa, CA’s State Faults are heading out for a short tour in support of their debut full-length, Desolate Peaks. The album was released in the Spring on Tiny Engines (Restorations, Dikembe, Tigers Jaw) and is available for order HERE. The album is also streaming in full on

The band recently premiered a video for the track “Sleeptalker” off Desolate Peaks. You can check out the video on Toxicbreed’s Funhouse. It was directed by Lukas Hodge. The band is also recording a live Toxicbreed’s Funhouse Session at The Dial in Temecula, CA on 9/24.

Written over the span of close to a year, Desolate Peaks, is the debut full-length from State Faults. The band delivers on the album title imagery with an intense emotional landscape rarely traveled. Drawing upon elements of 90’s emo and post-hardcore, State Faults is explosive but not to the extent where it overpowers the nuances of the band’s songwriting. These songs are always able to breathe to their full potential. The band is adventurous and always pushing forward but never choose to wallow in grandiosity. On Desolate Peaks State Faults is able to find a perfect balance between craft and composition.
