Hate for State

Punk rockers Hate for State began their rebellious musical odyssey as openers for three punk/metal bands at the now-defunct Viva’s in 2001. None of the band members were 21 at the time. 

HFS toured with The Voodoo Boys Trio in July of 2011 and have toured across the western US. They've been featured on AMP TV, 103.9fm Santa Cruz X, and have played festivals including: Ink at The Bay Tattoo Convention 2011, Monterey Rock and Art Festival mainstage 4 years in a row, Salinas Growers Berry Bash 2010, The End '05 movie premiere and placed top 10 in Your Music Magazines Battle of the Bands and Music Olympics events.
