About The State Department
“Conjuring echoes of the Afghan Whigs, Joy Division and Gang of Four, rapidly-ascending DC band The State Department brought an urgent, LOUD sensibility to DC’s rock-n-roll scene in 2009, and we anticipate even more buzz in 2010. The band’s MySpace page describes its sound as rock/post-punk/ghettotech. Whatever you call it, it rocks – especially live. The band’s fans and several hometown blogs are still gushing over their incendiary show at the Black Cat in October. Frontman Michael Medlocks vocals are brusque, yet captivating, and the rest of the swaggering band is raggedly authentic. This is a punk/rock/ghettotech band thats going places.” – On Tap Magazine
