Chief State, Vancouver, BC’s pop punk trailblazers, have released a new single and music video “Metaphors”. “Metaphors” is the bands second single off their forthcoming acoustic EP titled “The Acoustic EP” which is set to release on April 4th via Mutant League Records.

Chief State released the first single off the “The Acoustic EP” earlier this year titled “Living Out A Lie”.

Front man Fraser Simpson says, “As the name suggests, this song is about the feeling of your life being a lie, self-doubt, faking it until you make it, imposter syndrome. Something I constantly struggle with. I’ve made a lot of choices to get where I am today and often I’m not sure if I’m actually being true to myself. The song also speaks directly about doubt in previous relationships, whether my heart was actually in it. The video, created by the brilliant Lindsey Blane, really tied this idea together and we deliberately ended it before knowing the answer to the guy’s proposal. I think we’re all a little glossy on the surface, we show what we want to show but once it comes down to a life changing choice, like shown in the video, the truth will come out.”

Chief State and Mutant League Records have launched a limited edition “Valentine’s Day” shirt design, available exclusively through the Mutant League webstore.

All V-day shirt purchases through April 5th will receive a handwritten lyric by Fraser Simpson of Chief State, along with a song from the upcoming EP.
