The song is about that little area of self-doubt that people in most walks of life have in the back of their mind, yet self-doubt is the last thing in the thoughts of Exit State members Roy Bright, Peat Hicks, Phil Ireland and Matt Harris. This band has been on the crest of a wave during the past couple of years through a series of support slots with Reckless Love, Andy Cairns (Therapy?), Zico Chain, Black Spiders and most famously a UK tour with Michael Schenker epitomised by a startling performance at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
Third album “Let’s See It All” is the culmination of hard work both on the live circuit and in the studio, prompting these 9/10 album review comments from Powerplay.. “There were mutterings about them being something special.. now they’ve delivered.. deserves to be in the charts, nestling with the likes of Alter Bridge”.
Hailing from East Lancashire,  Exit State released debut album “Death Of A Rockstar” in 2010, quickly followed by “Black Veins” in 2011. Performances at Hard Rock Hell in North Wales and also in Ibiza, together with landmark appearances at SOS Festival in UK and Wizzfest in Belgium, also helped establish the band. They were also buoyed by a no.1 slot for their “Lost Beyond Belief” music video on Kerrang TV.
Upon appointment as official patrons of chART – Children’s Hospice Arts, the band celebrated with the May 2013 release of the “Crystalline” single (also from the “Let’s See It All” album) with proceeds donated to the said charity and at which point Exit State were proud to be championed by both Bumblefoot of Guns n Roses and Wayne Findlay of Michael Schenker Group.
Exit State will play as guests of Scottish rockers GUN at Manchester, Deaf Institute, on 12th December 2013. In 2014 they play Nottingham in January, Carlisle in February, before returning to play Wizzfest in Belgium in March. Further UK and European tour schedules are to come.
