May 19 — Punk rock band Chief State premiered its latest single and video this week.
The band debuted its new single, ‘Out For Me‘ and the song’s companion video Thursday. The song is the third single from the band’s forthcoming album, Waiting For Your Colours, which is scheduled for release July 1 through Mutant League Records. Pre-orders and pre-saves are open.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Out For Me’ is a full-on pop punk opus. Its up-beat presentation, complete with infectious vocal harmonies and equally engaging instrumentation will appeal to any pop punk fan.
No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the press release announcing the debut of the new single and its video. The lyrics presented with the song’s video hint at the theme centering on a person battling depression and negative thoughts and feelings in general.
The video that accompanies the song hints even more at that theme as it presents a man who at the song’s beginning is sad and depressed. As the story progresses, he adopts a canine friend, who in turn changes the man’s life for the better, leading him to even be more sociable and make more human friends. It is a story that is sure to appeal to a wide range of audiences.
