Punk rock band Chief State premiered its latest single and video this week.

The band debuted its new single, ‘22 Reasons‘ and its video Wednesday. The song is the fourth single from the band’s forthcoming album, Waiting For Your Colours, which is scheduled for release July 1 through Mutant League Records. Pre-orders and pre-saves are open.

The album has also produced the singles, ‘Out For Me,‘ ‘Burning Out‘ and ‘Team Wiped‘ along with their respective videos.

The musical arrangement featured in Chief State’s new single blends elements of pop punk and pop rock for a song that will appeal to a wide yet targeted audience group. It is easily comparable in its sound and style to works from the likes of so many pop punk bands out there.

Front man Fraser Simpson talked about the song’s lyrical theme in a prepared statement.

“The lyrics are an honest introspection into a breakup I went through, how my perspective had changed from being with someone so closely to then being on the outside looking in,” Simpson said. “That was the hardest at first, knowing someone for so long to then only being able to see their light from a distance. Looking back I can see it was an essential part of my own growth, the hardship of that time led me to question what I was doing with my life. I had been just waiting for my colours to come through.”
