Vancouver, BC pop-punks Chief State have dropped a new single and video titled “Burning Out.” The track appears on their long-awaited debut full-length ‘Waiting For Your Colours,’ which will be released via Mutant League Records on July 1.
Of the new single, frontman Fraser Simpson says, “I’ve been very introspective over the past year. I’ve asked myself a lot of questions about where I am and what I’m doing with my life. This song came about when I didn’t like the answers I was able to give myself. Approaching 30 with no real direction, no one really teaches you how you should live your life. It seems all we know is to compare ourselves with others and their achievements and comparing myself with others I felt disappointed and disheartened. Words flew out onto the page and resonated with me in those moments. I wrote the lines “I’m finding out that it’s only getting harder. I find it tough ‘cos my body’s getting older, I thought by now there’d be something I’d be proud of” and the rest of the song just developed from there. I’m trying to be positive with my mindset these days. I try to take the time to appreciate what I do have and not focus on what I don’t. I think most of us search for some kind of meaning, some affirmation that we’re doing ok. Really we just need to enjoy the ride, appreciate the small joys we win and strive for more of those happy feelings whatever they might be for each of us.”
We were blown away by “Burning Out” it has this incredible energy within that is so explosive. We can’t wait till July when we get to hear more music . You can check out the track and video below .
