State Radio shares the official music video for “Take Cover” from their studio album, Rabbit Inn Rebellion (out now).
Each song on Rabbit Inn Rebellion has a unique story and "Take Cover" is no different. “Take Cover” is written about the ignorance and detachment of some when it comes to war. Taking this idea a bit further, director Chris Coats explores what happens when complacency is no longer the option. The protagonist, an androgynous female, begins in a generic suburban setting and is quickly propelled through an apocalyptic string of events that is both violent and redemptive.
State Radio’s Chad Stokes, Chuck Fay and Mike “Mad Dog” Najarian serve up rock n’ roll realism that weaves together stories of the downtrodden and the oppressed, but never loses its sense of hope. Demonstrating the band’s versatility, Rabbit Inn Rebellion is raw and gritty, rolling with thunderous drumming and delectably grimy guitars, moving away from the previously reggae- and ska-tinged productions on 2009's Let It Go.
State Radio recently announced that Matt Embree (from Rx Bandits) will be joining the band on their upcoming “State Of Troy Tour,” which kicks off March 10 in Denver at the Odgen Theatre.
In 2009, lead singer Chad Stokes, wrote a song about death row inmate, Troy Davis. The song, titled “State Of Troy,” was lent toAmnesty International USA for a short, hard-hitting web video about the plight of Davis (watch it HERE). Davis has been on death row for 18 years and has received three stays of execution, twice coming within 24 hours of his death, despite a strong claim of innocence that has never been heard in a court of law.

Mutual Friends is an album of simple, heartfelt pop decorated with art school elegance and occasional folky flourishes.
