Vancouver, BC pop-punks Chief State have just released their new single “Metaphors” via Mutant League Records.
The standalone single serves to tide fans over until their debut full-length, which is due out in 2022.
Nik Pang of Chief State says, “Metaphors is about being in a really dark place, but not knowing how to communicate that to your loved ones. Instead of saying what you mean, and exactly how you feel, it’s easy to gloss over it and be super generic and vague.”
This is the first new music from the band since the release of the band’s 2020 breakthrough ‘Tough Love”, which resonated with media and lovers of the genre alike.
“With hearts pinned to their sleeves and tears staining their cheeks, Chief State deal in pop-punk at its most bittersweet. Delivering as much urgency as you could possibly hope for”– Rock Sound
