Props to Sub Pop for giving Chastity Belt enough room to make a truly great THIRD album

Listen to another new track from the Seattle band, as they reach a new height on 'Caught In A Lie'

That makes it sound like Sub Pop have begrudging kept this band in a deal after a couple of okay albums. Of course, they were probably very happy with – ahem – ‘No Regrets’ (2013) and – ahem, ahem – ‘Time To Go Home’ (2015).

They were good, but not great – not like Chastity Belt‘s forthcoming ‘I Used To Spend Too Much Time Alone’ (out June 2nd via Sub Pop’s Hardly Art imprint).

It’s the kind of DIY indie record to put on to dig yourself out of a bad day, especially the opening ‘Different Now’, which we posted a couple of week’s ago. That track is followed by this one on the album, ‘Caught In A Lie’.

If you don’t like either of these, Chastity Belt might not be for you. Although that’s what people said to me when I wasn’t bowled over by the bands’ previous albums, and here we are…
