    Blessed State's latest, the SLIPSTREAM EP, is a 4-song effort recorded this past May by Kevin Gebo at Disappearing Mountain in Easthampton MA. The band enjoyed the recording process so much that Gebo has since joined the band as their second guitar player!

    These four songs continue the band's melodic punk trajectory, incorporating more harmonies and hooks wherever possible. The Exploding In Sound blog referred to it as "thoughtful and efficient, comfortable with the pathways that lead into and around the heart".

Track Name: Dog Years
Sun sets in the same spot as yesterday
Yet everything that brought me to here has changed
It’s these small things that always keep me watching
You never know when it’ll just turn out hopeless
“Don’t let me down”, I keep on thinking. “Don’t let me down”
Can you see the beauty in the redundant?
Is it a way to keep the perspective?
Or is it a way to get lost in the noise, so that 1 year ends up being 7?
“Just put me down, get it down with”
I promised me that I’d take all of this in stride
Can you tell me if I stayed true to push on or still abide?
Track Name: Waking
Every time you try and talk, there’s no sound
It’s just like my favorite nightmare
Feel the eyes of everyone you know burn to the core, seeking answers
A high we know too well, let’s wait here til we come down (finally)
I can’t say that I know how to cope
But hey at least we are trying
Give us time and hey, who knows where we’ll be
Didn’t say I could tell the future
Demand a new process when what was will not work
No plans for today when waking is so hard to do every day
Track Name: Borrowed Tune
Never thought that I would have the chance to see all this come through
It’s so inviting, deciding what we know by heart
Don’t fall by the wayside
And still here we are making the most of everything that we can
Don’t go changing your mind this time
Cause I need it
Thank you for all that you’ve done
God damn me, I just can’t sit still
And there are those days, can’t help but feel like I’m on some borrowed time
Avoid telling you this song would be the very last I wrote
They call it competition, I can’t say they’re wrong
But it’s never simple, we knew that all along
And there’s nothing better, to share this with you
It’s awe-inspiring, in all that you do
Track Name: Seconds
“Why are we still in this town?” is the thing we always say
Seems like every other week we second guess everything
This year it’s gonna be so different, you’ll just see
Wishing doesn’t make it true
It’s easier to live indisposed than to change anything
And just think of this place as your reluctant muse
