Vancouver pop-punk five-piece Chief State has released the first single off their forthcoming album titled “Tough Love,” which will be released in early 2020.
The song was recorded in Vancouver by Tim Creviston (Spiritbox, Misery Signals, Parting Ways).
Chief State’s guitarist Nik Pang says, “Deciduous is a song about the transition in seasons from summer into fall and winter. As the weather gets colder and the days get shorter, a lot of people, myself included, tend to isolate themselves and get into a really negative headspace. The song uses the metaphor of deciduous and evergreen trees to explain how some really struggle through the colder months, while others remain unchanged. As much as the song is about struggling with seasonal depression, it still keeps a relatively positive outlook, because after all, it never stays cold forever.”Stream “Deciduous” through your preferred music service here:https://orcd.co/deciduous
