Combined with the harmonic vocals, powerful drums and wicked riffs, the band creates a distinct, recognisable sound that can be described as a kind of alternative melodic nu-rock. InnerState was formed in the summer of 2005 when the cover band of drummer Martijn, guitarist Sander and frontman Martin broke up. They then decided to make a new start and form a band with which they would only play original material. Thereafter bass player Jarl was asked to join the new band. The band has been performing live regularly as of early 2006 and not without success! They were awarded second place at the finals of the Nijmegen University student band competition that same year.
By that time they had defeated fourteen other bands which had participated! In January of 2007 the band recorded their first EP, followed by their first single in May of 2008. Currently they are performing as frequently as possible and busy with the writing of new materials. Read more on Last.fm.
