March 10 — Punk rock outfit Chief State is scheduled to release its latest album this summer.
Waiting For Your Colours is scheduled for release July 1 through Mutant League Records. In anticipation of its release, the band premiered the record’s lead single, ‘Team Wiped‘ and its video Thursday.
The musical arrangement featured in the song immediately lends itself to comparison to works from the likes of Sum 41, New Found Glory, and All Time Low. That is evidenced through its familiar poppy guitar riffs and vocal harmonies.
No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the press release announce the premiere of the song and its video. The lyrics provided with the video hint at the theme centering on the familiar matter of a relationship that is in a very difficult position.
The song’s video features the band performing its new single on a sound stage and blends that with footage of front man Fraser Simpson carrying a deck chair around a city and singing along to the track.
