Living Out A Lie is the first single off their upcoming 5-song The Acoustic EP, which is said to invite listeners to rediscover Chief State's catalog through a captivating and intimate lens.

Stripped and bare, the latest single, Living Out A Lie, blends guitar, piano, percussion and a raw passionate vocal performace.

Speaking about the track front-man Fraser Simpson says;

As the name suggests, this song is about the feeling of your life being a lie, self-doubt, faking it until you make it, imposter syndrome. Something I constantly struggle with. I've made a lot of choices to get where I am today and often I'm not sure if I'm actually being true to myself.
The song also speaks directly about doubt in previous relationships, whether my heart was actually in it. The video, created by the brilliant Lindsey Blane, really tied this idea together and we deliberately ended it before knowing the answer to the guy's proposal. I think we're all a little glossy on the surface, we show what we want to show but once it comes down to a life changing choice, like shown in the video, the truth will come out.
