Livestream - July 14th, 8pm EST

Hey guys we’ll be doing another livestream on July 14th at 8pm and we’ll be previewing a few tracks from the new record, Paris Or India. This time it’s not as much about us as it is about YOU. A lot of people are asking us what the deal is with the name “Paris Or India.” Have you been there? Background story? Dream sequence? Game of geography gone wrong? Or right? …and so forth.

So we wanted to have you guys chime in, venture a guess, and send us your creative, bizarre, zany, romantic, tear-jerking hypotheses.  You tell us - what’s the deal with “Paris Or India?”

Send your thoughts to whatsthedeal@themidwaystate.com in advance.
Our favourite, most creative, wildest stories will be read to the lot of you on July 14, 8pm EST on livestream.com/themidwaystate.  A signed copy of Paris Or India will be awarded to the top musing.    

Get crackin’!

- Kirsh, Wise, Nathan, Daenen

You are cordially invited to join our street team.

What does that mean exactly?

In a nutshell, you help us spread the word about the band and in return we give you access to cool exclusives (like videos, song downloads not available anywhere else, and first dibs on concert tickets when they become available); that kind of thing.

How does it work?

You complete tasks (either online, or in the physical world - its up to you) and in return you're rewarded with activity points and store credits. Activity points unlock more exclusives, and store credits can be spent merchandise like CDs and shirts etc.

There's also forums, and the ability to share unique band related content generated by you.

So check it out, we'd love to have you on the team.
