Vancouver pop-punk five-piece Chief State is releasing the new LP Tough Love on March 27 via Mutant League Records.
Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, the band’s album release shows have been canceled. Instead, they’re going to live stream an acoustic performance this Saturday 3/28 via the Mutant League Records Youtube channel here.
Tune in at 6pm PST on Saturday to hear Chief State perform songs from the new album Tough Love (along with some old fan favorites). The band will also be giving away copies of Tough Love on CD.
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!”

“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
