Chastity Belt announce new record

Chastity Belt announce new album 'I Used to Spend So Much Time Alone'

Hardly Art is proud to announce I Used to Spend So Much Time Alone — the forthcoming third studio album from Seattle’s Chastity Belt–out Friday, June 2nd on all formats and streaming services. Get your first taste of the new record with the band’s new video for “Different Now”, which affectionately riffs on Temple of the Dog’s classic video for “Hunger Strike”. Watch the “Different Now” video, directed by Bobby McHugh, below.

The band’s West Coast tour kicks off tomorrow night in San Francisco, and they will be playing a number of showcases at this year’s SXSW. Three bonus tracks will be included on all CD and digital versions, as well as on digital downloads included with LP purchases. Pre-orders are available now from the Hardly Art website. A complete list of upcoming tour dates is below.

Chastity Belt are Julia Shapiro, Gretchen Grimm, Lydia Lund, and Annie Truscott. I Used To Spend So Much Time Alone was recorded live in July 2016 with producer Matthew Simms (Wire) at Jackpot! in Portland, Oregon (the birthplace of some of their favorite Elliott Smith records).
