RelaxOnline.com is proud to present the State Of Shock Memento Project. State Of Shock is probably one of the best bands you've never heard of. From the release of their debut EP, Too Close in the early '80's, State Of Shock began their struggle to obtain the elusive record deal... a goal they never reached.
Times change, and the music industry has changed so dramatically since the '80's. Had the Internet been around then, you would have definately heard of State Of Shock by now. Since the Internet is here and now, you have the opportunity to see what's been missed. After more than 24 years of relative anonymity, State Of Shock has compiled their "Greatest Hits" for release to the masses online with their Memento Project.
You can get to know State Of Shock by listening to a few of their songs Absolutely Free!

State Of Shock's debut EP, Too Close, is also available for purchase at RelaxOnline.com. A true collectors item, only 2000 copies were pressed and distributed throughtout North America. More than 1200 copies were sold at shows, indie record stores, and by the band members themselves. The rest were distributed to Record Companies and Radio Stations throughout the US and Canada. Too Close brought State Of Shock their first appearance on the College Radio Charts in early 1984.
And yet... the gatekeepers and deal makers of the music business failed to take notice. You have a chance to prove the industry wrong about this band, by simply downloading and listening to their music.
