States & Capitals

States & Capitals is an American rock band from Wyckoff, New Jersey, formed in 2015. The band was founded by 22-year old frontman, singer/songwriter Richie Arthur (Richard Arthur Schaafsma).

States & Capitals released their debut 4-track EP, “Vacant - EP”, on April 21, 2015. While the EP was written entirely by the then 18-year-old, it was produced alongside New Jersey-based producer, Jake Antelis. The two would later reconnect to create the sophomore release, “For Your Own Good - EP”, released July 17, 2015.

In support of the releases, the group toured throughout the east coast for all of 2015 and 2016, including slots on The Stories For Monday Tour, Camplified Tour, SXSW, and several opening and festival appearances. On September 15, 2015, the band released a cover of Parachute’s, “Kiss Me Slowly”, along with a music video the same day. The cover gained a great amount of attention via Spotify, which now has more than 2 million streams. The band released two follow-up singles in spring 2016, “Crawling Right Back To You” and “20.08”.

Lionties is a rock band from Westwood, NJ.
