Well how’s that for a meteoric rise? It was only a couple of years ago that State saw alt-j play a fantastic show at the Academy 2 and now they’ve announced their transition to arena status. The band will release their second album This Is All Yours on 19th September, quickly following it up with a show at the O2 on 27th of the same month – the largest headline show they’ve announced to date. Tickets priced €31.50 including booking fee go on sale this Friday 13th June at 9am.
