SOME STUFFS: These United States want you to touch them

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

There are only a small handful of bands with the words “United States” in them, and they tend to be ugly. Here’s another. They are called These United States. No, perhaps they’re not ugly but in the American Idol era it seems it’s about looks and fashion more than the music. Do these guys fit the mold? Hell, one of the guys is bolo head!

In truth, they are a rock band who like to tie in current events with their solid sound, but don’t lump them into the “socially conscious” box just yet. However, they’re willing to prove that they are worthy of those bands whose music have become timeless through their musical efforts, and fans will be able to find out why on September 1st with the release of Everybody Touches Everything (United Interests). Don’t want to wait that long? You can listen to the first single from the album, called “I Want You To Keep Everything” (5.71mb).
