Posted in State of Man News with tags , , , , on January 5, 2013 by stateofman

It’s been over 13 years since the members of State of Man came together, and after an extended hiatus with little activity from the band, we’ve finally decided it’s time to break the silence!!!!!! We’d like to say Happy New Year to you AND give you a little something new.

Click the link to play “Billie Jean” redux by State of Man:

If you like this track, please download it FREE and enjoy!   And if you really, really enjoy it, let us know!  In fact, let some other folks know, too!

Our thanks to our good friend and road buddy, Mike Froedge, who recorded, played drums, mixed and mastered the entire track at his studio, Open Skys.  We all produced it together and decided to release it for free,  hoping you’ll enjoy it even more than we do!

Thanks for your support all these years and here’s to an abundant 2013 for us all!

Much love & light,

State of Man & Mike Froedge

Mark Joyner Letter & New Purchasing option for those outside of US/Canada

Posted in State of Man News with tags , , , , , , , , on June 2, 2010 by stateofman

Now that “Swallow Your Fears” has become a part of the brand,  we couldn’t be more pleased that best selling author / thought leader / marketing sensei, Mark Joyner,  sent a great letter recently to members to pread the word about State of Man‘s latest album IN THIS PLACE.

You probably already know Mark is known as “The Godfather of Internet Marketing,” so  you can imagine the great response we’ve received from his hundreds of thousands of Simpleology members!  THANK YOU!

For those outside of the US and Canada who’ve had difficulty purchasing the album online to get all the great bonuses we’re offering,  here is a simple work-around:

You’ll receive nearly 30 State of Man tracks – some of which are unreleased and many are out-of-print and unavailable elsewhere. You’ll also get two interviews between Mark Joyner and State of Man front-man John Stringer!

Oh.. and even if you are not a Simpleology member (why aren’t you?  sign up – its life changing and FREE), you can still get in on the bonsues.  Enjoy!
