NeW BeAt FuNd Set To Open For Blink-182


Penn State, get ready for a totally new sound to pop music. Break out artists NeW BeAt FuNd are making a name for themselves and 2013 their year. The band is fresh off a successful run on the 2013 Vans Warped Tour this past summer and ready to finish out the year strong. I even got to catch their set for a song or two at Warped Tour’s Holmdel, NJ stop and can vouch for their incredible stage presence.


NeW BeAt FuNd is comprised of BuRNie BAkeR, BuTToN, SiLkY and SNaPz all of whom are proud to announce that they have been tapped by the one and only Blink-182 to open up for their short run of small intimate shows along the northeast, as well as festivals out in the midwest and California. Yes, you read that right, NeW BeAt FuNd is opening for Blink-182. Casual right? The band is super stoked on this, and can you really blame them?!

Personally, I find that NeW BeAt FuNd has an extremely unique and different sound which really sets them apart from a lot of alternative pop bands out on the market right now. At the start of this past summer, the band re-released its “($) CoiNz” EP.  Drawing on the energy of the group’s dynamic live show, the self-produced EP includes their off-the-wall track that put them on KROQ/L.A.’s influential “Locals Only” show & in “Kat’s Box” —“ScArE Me”— as well as  “CeLibATe CeLEbRiTy,” “HeLEnA” and  “GeT uP.”

Think NeW BeAt FuNd is your style and want to see them live? Well, you’re in luck! State In The Real will be giving away two tickets to their show September 12th in Bethlehem, PA where NeW BeAt FuNd will be opening for Four Year Strong and Blink-182! Want to win?
