Post-hardcore band State Faults return to their hometown of Santa Rosa for a lively show at the Chop Shop on February 22. San Jose-based hardcore band Outlier will join them, along with local friends and math rockers Sloth & Turtle, as well as indie rock band Pushing It from San Francisco.

The creative community of Santa Rosa has long cultivated a supportive rock scene, and this show’s lineup underscores the strings that tie this scene together. Michael Weldon from State Faults (guitar, vocals) speaks to the excitement surrounding this timely reunion that will bring old and new friends back to familiar stomping grounds:

“It’s been a long time since we’ve played locally or been on the road. We’re very excited to get out there again,” Weldon said. “It’s going to be a lot of fun playing with our friends in Santa Rosa; we can’t think of a better homecoming. The next day we’re heading down to Fullerton, which is fitting because it’s one of the first places we played outside of Santa Rosa. It’s kinda like coming full circle. We’re very appreciative of Nico from the band Sloth & Turtle for helping us with this hometown show, as well as the band Outlier from San Jose, who’ll be joining us both days. Please come join us and let’s ride the lightning.”
