States & Capitals Will Release Debut Album ‘The Feelings LP’ August 2nd – On Tour Now

States & Capitals will release their debut album The Feelings LP on August 2nd via JIRNY. States & Capitals is a rock band hailing from Wyckoff, New Jersey, founded in 2015 by 22-year old frontman, singer/songwriter Richie Arthur (Richard Arthur Schaafsma.) He cites a melting pot of musical references from rock and pop including John Mayer, The Night Game, and All Time Low. Arthur has been creating and performing music since the tender age of 7, cutting his musical teeth at the renowned School of Rock in his home state of New Jersey:

“I started out with all the huge eighties turn up the gain type bands at first which really created the path to discovering my love for playing music. Once I developed to writing and really focusing on the artistry, I found myself falling in love with the songwriting side of music rather than specific genres or groups – anything Mayer touches, Martin Johnson, Alex Gaskarth, really paved the way to where i’m at now”
