The ferocious and energetic sound captured on the album is even bigger, louder, harder and faster on stage. With support slots for Incubus, Seether and I Am Giant this is the band that has ruled the rock airwaves of 2012.
‘Apollo Me’, Rival State’s debut album also shot in at number one on the NZ Album charts following on from the huge success of singles ‘Sleep Talker’ & ‘Four Leaf Clover’.
