State Lights have announced their new single, ‘Peace Will Come’, set for release on 8th February.
Singer Shobsy, guitarist Joe Regan, drummer Paul Ridgeway and bassist Noel Perry all met at BIMM Music College in Dublin. Bonding over a shared interest in classic 80’s music and a common desire to write big stadium sized songs the guys decided to work on a music project. This early incarnation lead to the formation of State Lights in 2015.
