about

Here is what you might want to know: Mistakes Were Made is the fourth release by State of Franklin. Most of the songs on Mistakes Were Made are about these crazy times we are living in. Friends dying from cancer, racists marching openly in the streets, assholes with too much power. Despite the evidence, they try to be optimistic. But this is definitely the angriest record they’ve made. Can’t really blame them.
