New Album ‘Tough Love’ Out This Friday, March 27 via Mutant League Records
“Chief State are a high-energy pop-punk quintet hailing from Vancouver, British Columbia, who are tighter than a rich relative and as posi as your older siblings’ mangled youth-core records.”– Alternative Press
“Chief State’s debut album was well worth the wait. The band continues to incorporate the energy and emotion found in their previous material and created a very memorable record.”- Live A Little Bit Louder
“…an instant-classic…Tough Love is chock full of high-quality moments.”- The New Fury
“… powerful knockout punch in just 20 minutes! The perfect mix of modern era punk rock with all the right touches of inspiration from the 90s era bands that littered the rosters of Epitaph and Fat Wreck Chords.”- All Ages Zine

Frontman Fraser Simpson says, “We were massively disappointed to cancel our release shows due to the coronavirus. It does at least give us a unique opportunity to take our performance to fans around the world and not just in Vancouver though! We’re excited to share some acoustic renditions of our songs old and new. We’ll be taking questions and chatting between songs so it’s a great opportunity to get to know us and all that we get up to! We’ll also be doing some giveaways so tune in on Saturday 3/28 at 6pm PST for some quarantine hangs!”
