We here at Fuse have been on the State Champs train for a minute now. We told you "Losing Myself" was one of the best pop-punk songs of the summer (perhaps of the year?). We also had the quintet reflect on Paramore's powerhouse debut album; we talked to them about touring with 5 Seconds of Summer; and we got their thoughts on sneaking into the Alternative Press Music Awards. More recently, we caught up with guitarist Tyler Szalkowski about the group's sophomore LP, Around the World and Back.

Today you can hear the release in all its glory, courtesy Alt Press. So what are you waiting for? Press play here.

The new record officially drops this Friday (Oct. 16) and the band released its debut album, The Finer Things, in 2013. Since then, they've hit the road with 5SOS and All Time Low, and are about to hit the road with pop-punk heavyweights The Wonder Years. Things are looking bright for these guys!
