We are proud to announce California's THESE STREETS have joined the Upstate Records family. THESE STREETS is a hard-hitting quintet from Modesto, California that have been a staple in the underground metal/hardcore scene since 2014. We respected for their heavy but melodic style, THESE STREETS are carving out their own lane. THESE STREETS will be releasing "Expect The Worst" on August 21st through Upstate Records with digital distribution through Blood Blast Distribution (Nuclear Blast Records). Mario Cangemi, UPSTATE RECORDS, writes, "THESE STREETS epitomizes the direction of the label. They capture all the elements we love...hard, intense, authentic". The first single and video, "Stay Awake" will be released on May 13th. Frontman Cam Ross drew inspiration from their time on road with legendary NYHC's Skarhead and Brick By Brick on their recent West Coast Tour. Cam recalls, "Let's just say that "Stay Awake" is about a really long night we had on tour with Skarhead and Brick By Brick...a very long and interesting night". Hmmmm.....tour life.
"These Streets is a band that wants to be defined/remembered by for the fact that we have a consistent message on fighting mental health and the hardships of life.The band has strong lyrical content that can hold meaning for many individuals.When it comes to the instrumentals, there’s no denying is heavy-hitting hard rock that can make anyone bang their head.On our upcoming album we really defined the unique sound that we want These Streets to be represented by." - Cameron Ross
