Melissa Burris Well this just crept up in my brain and stayed there. Listened once and had it stuck in my head for dayyyys. So glad I bought the whole record, new fan! Favorite track: Chains.

Patrick Cady Dark & often abrasive but ultimately a very life affirming album. Really enjoyed seeing Chastity live as well. Deeply admire Williams' efforts to bring visibility to mental health & social justice issues in his hometown. "I'm stronger than I look and I'm much more than what you took". Favorite track: Innocence.

Josh Kreeger A beautiful blending balance of rough and hit in the feels kinda music. “Suffer” is deep and catchy! Definitely worth a vinyl, which is what I got while they were out in So Cal. Good luck and have fun 👌🏻🔥🤘🏻 Favorite track: Suffer.

about

Chastity is a world of its own from the mind of Brandon Williams. Reflecting the working class background of Whitby, Ontario, Chastity’s songs are charged with the ethos of archetypal youth on the fringe. A project more aptly characterized by its intentions than specific sound or medium, Chastity stands to confront the struggles of those existing in the unseen, often silenced periphery. It is an artifact of youth culture constantly working to form community, bridging isolation with collectivity.

Visuals play a meaningful role in this world with Williams using his penchant for crafting consistently sleek, challenging imagery to personalize the narratives running throughout all of Chastity’s music — most discernibly, a call for the disruption of status quo.

It was clear from the release of Chastity’s first demos that this was not just “another punk band that can operate at only one speed.” Always concerned with the trending lack of accessibility and inclusivity in public spaces for the arts, the first Chastity show was held in Williams’ own bedroom where, packed wall-to-wall, the police were quickly called. But after the project’s second show supporting DC punk band Priests, Chastity was off to the races, sharing stages with the likes of Metz, Chelsea Wolfe and Fucked Up. All without a full length recording out.

Since signing with Brooklyn label Captured Tracks, Chastity has re-released those initial demos, along with 2 new singles and an EP, stoking the anticipation of the debut full length record, Death Lust.

Releasing Friday the 13th of July, 2018, Death Lust follows the plot of suffering to survival. The album begins on a tortured note with ‘Come' and builds toward the plummeting finale of ‘Chains’, evolving from start to finish in a crescendo of severity. Chastity explains, “Death Lust is about growing up death obsessed. It’s about the pain that it takes but the capacity that we have to overcome.”

Track Name: Come
the day they took you away
i longed
for their pain
i’ve gone
wishing again

sadness is the danger of being young
dreaming of the days still to come
i want to make it through, through to you
come, come, come

i’ve thought being in love
has more to do with crying
than come

sadness is the danger of being young
dreaming of the days still to come
i want to make it through, through to you
come, come, come

you’re my nails biting into my palm
all i could ever want
my god, my heaven
come, come, come
Track Name: Suffer
do you remember?
looking for bloody mary in my mirror?
that september?
we took turns going first
took me by my collar, took me under
because i can’t forget her

suffering, suffering
my fear of god is gone
but purity is fun
purity, purity
family for the lonely
pity for the pretty
suffering, suffering

i saw you run for your life after you took mine
ripped me open wide
threw yourself inside and i don’t know why
and i’ve tried
i can’t forget

suffering, suffering
my fear of god is gone
and purity is fun
purity, purity
family for the lonely
pity for the pretty
suffering, suffering
Track Name: Scary
were you born trouble
or did your pa teach you rock and roll
don’t pick a war
before you know
who you’re fighting for

i’m prone
to psychosis

high for a sec and low the next
keep that mess out of your neck
you’re scary now

were you born to die for
thought your ma taught you use your soul
give your hair
a middle part
but we all know who you are
Track Name: Children
on my bed
with everyone else
watching my screen
watch my eyes melt

pick a cult
call it what you want
run run run

living my death
with everyone else
one mans filth
that’s my wealth

pick a cult
call it what you want
run run run
run from home for a better one
Track Name: Heaven Hell Anywhere Else
who laced my days with pain?
i don’t know where we went but i’m there again
witch crosses across your hands
hair tucked, tied in elastic bands
today’s the day that me and all of my friends
are trying to get into heaven
who laced my days with pain?
i don’t know where we went but i’m there again
serotonin don’t let me go

what would it feel like to fall?
from the school sixty feet tall
what would it feel like to crawl?
from heaven hell anywhere else

no matter what kids are going to find the drugs
the helicopters in the sky won’t be enough to stop us
serotonin let me go

what would it feel like to fall?
from the school sixty feet tall
what would it feel like to crawl?
from heaven hell anywhere else
kissed the crossed she takes all her clothes off
she’s looking at me everytime i wake up
what it feel like to crawl?
from heaven hell anywhere else
Track Name: Negative With Reason To Be
anxiety sink in your teeth
anxiety be my peace

we should warn the unsung
of their battles that we took on
tell them stay the course
take on the side that hates you more

half to death
half to death
half to death
happiness

come face to face
with the church of england brigade
stage a parade
of your america it’s a cage

half to death
half to death
half to death
happiness
Track Name: Anoxia
bury me between the guilty and filthy
then hang me from the tallest tree in whitby
burn me first thing the next morning
keep your shitty conspiracy theory on being free

dizzy, weakening
sinking until i’m nothing

make me feel like i’m in need
then take me
mistake me for a body
anxiety!
and it’s not the city, it’s the pageantry
keep your shitty conspiracy theory on being free
Track Name: Choke
i long for more than i can give
i find it hard to simply live

my body is not a temple
nothing is that simple
my body is a tangle
and i’m just caught in it all

i envy apathy
is it paradise or deceit
how free it must be to feel nothing
i would give anything

and i’m just caught in it all
caught it in all

i’m the stain that won’t come out
the hate that stays in your mouth
the day that dad walked out
the year mom stayed and drown

i’m not afraid of you
you are afraid of me
negativity
a loving enemy
Track Name: Innocence
every morning i maintain
i want you to be healthy
every you, every me

i’ve got hope i’ve got hope

it’ll be sixty years january since i’ve drank
and you know they sang for me
amazing grace

i’ve got hope
i’ve got hope in this
i’ve got hope
i’ve got hope in you

i’m bitter i’m brittle and i’m doing a lot better

i’ve got hope
i’ve got hope in this
i’ve got hope
i’ve got hope in you

i’m stronger than i look and i’m much more than what you took

i’ve got hope
i’ve got hope in this
i’ve got hope
i’ve got hope in you
Track Name: Chains
i’m the piercing in the wrong ear
the sinking that you still feel
it’s fear

don’t waste your pain on hate
start your life outside of the chains

come the chance to fight
choose you stand beside
but choose who you defy

don’t waste your pain on hate
start your life outside of the chains
