From the squalor of Del Playa came the boys from Out Of State. There is a part of town where keg beer continuously flows on any night of the week and is actually safer to drink than the tap water. In early 2005, in the ramshackle 6625 Del Playa Drive Unit #4 this band was born. There were poisonous mushrooms growing from the walls and the oven had an exhaust system that contained a giant bird's nest. At the end of the year the Chief of the Santa Barbara fire department paid a visit to the house and explained that if the oven had actually worked, then the bird's nest would have blocked the exhaust, subsequently starting a fire and leading to a gas line explosion.
Thankfully the members of the band survived their year at 6625 and continued to play music and develop as a band. Their 2006 self titled e.p. release earned attention in the new rock releases on iTunes with their singles "Carry The Flag" and "Save Our Tomorrow." These songs have since been featured on West Coast Rock compilations and gained them entry into playing venues like The Whisky A Go Go and The Ventura Theatre. Their music too fast to call rock, not fast enough to call punk, and just too damn uppity and wild to call grunge.
Out Of State would like to extend their gratitude for the support from their friends and fans, and from their sponsers Roller Innovation Clothing and Rinker Designs. Out of State has worked with studio engineer and producer Thom Flowers. Thom has produced sensational bands such as The Ataris and Sugarcult and has played guitar for Fat Record's band Bad Astronaut.
