Chastity Belt announce UK and Europe tour as well as new music later in the year


Chastity Belt

Chastity Belt have announced a UK and Europe tour as well as teasing with new music later in the year, Getintothis’ Peter Goodbody has the hype.

Seattle four-piece Chastity Belt have announced details of an Autumn European tour, taking in an extensive UK run.

Julia Shapiro, Gretchen Grimm, Lydia Lund and Annie Truscott’s 2017 album for Hardly Art, ‘I Used to Spend So Much Time Alone’ was their third and widely praised as their finest full-length to date.

It was recorded live in July of 2016, with producer Matthew Simms (Wire) at Jackpot! in Portland, Oregon (birthplace of some of their favourite Elliott Smith records).

It’s a dark and uncommonly beautiful set of moody post-punk that finds the Seattle outfit’s feelings in full view, unobscured by humour.
