Today we’re excited to highlight the newest album, The Things We Leave Unsaid, from Cleveland, Ohio, hard rockers Groundstate. The trio brings a fresh approach to a late ’90s/early 2000s rock sound that is making a huge comeback these days. With singles like “Floating Away” and “Perfect Timing,” the band will impress fans of Seether, Chevelle, Three Days Grace, Staind and even those Deftones, Helmet and Quicksand listeners out there.

Groundstate founders (and brothers) Conor and Aidan Smith tapped producer Jim Wirt (Incubus, Hoobastank, Centershift) for the LP production and have announced some additional live shows for October/November in support of the effort.
