Chastity Belt are ‘Different Now’, and have a more serious third album on the way

Seattle band have a brilliant new track

Seattle band Chastity Belt have always delivered their message with no little humour and self-depreciating wit.

Their 2013 debut ‘No Regerts’ had that, so, too, did 2015’s ‘Time to Go Home’.

But for their latest one, called ‘I Used To Spend So Much Time Alone’ and released on Hardly Art on 2 June, they say they’ve adopted a more serious tone.

While the video for the lead track ‘Different Now’ is a pastiche of Temple of the Dog’s video for ‘Hunger Strike’, the track reflects their new found directness. We think it’s superb.
