Living Proof, Albany, NY-based pop-punks State Champs' third album, is the most ambitious and cohesive work in the band's catalog. It was recorded in two different sessions with assistance from two different teams. The first session saw John Feldmann producing, who brought his knack for writing hit records – which he's done for bands like Blink-182 and Good Charlotte – into the fold. But State Champs wouldn't let their old-school roots die, teaming up with Mike Green and Kyle Black, the pair that shepherded Around The World And Back across the finish line. With the recording process split in two, it allowed State Champs to write and record more songs than ever before, culling it down to the most potent batch possible.

State Champs also collaborated with some of pop-punk's heaviest hitters, as the band co-wrote songs with Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low and Mark Hoppus from Blink-182. Though State Champs had no intention of working with Hoppus, the punk legend stopped by Feldmann's studio while the band was recording and quickly took a liking to them. Before long, Hoppus was helping the band write a pair of songs, working with Derek DiScanio on the lyrics, and then jumping in the vocal booth to lay down some parts of his own. "We had no idea he was even coming in," said DiScanio, "Then the next day, me and Mark Hoppus are just sitting out by John Feldmann's pool writing lyrics from scratch. And that ultimately ended up being ‘Dead And Gone,' which is the first single on the record."

"There are songs on this album about everything," DiScanio adds, "There's break-ups, and flings, love, loss, all of that. I've seen a little bit of everything through this writing process." Living Proof is a record about coming out the other side of those experiences, both triumphant and humbled. That growth as palpable, as State Champs made a record that's like nothing they've done before, but is still an an album that only they could ever make.
