Channeling the feeling of youth on the fringe, Chastity creates melancholic ear worms for pent up suburbia. Living in the outskirts in Southern Ontario, Brandon Williams sings his neighbourhood’s song, but has resonated with neighborhoods across the world, sharing international stages with Deafheaven, Chelsea Wolfe and Alexisonfire.
Chastity’s 2018 debut LP ‘Death Lust’ was received with both critical and cultural acclaim. The project’s debut was quickly followed up with 2019’s ‘Home Made Satan’, a political record that was prophetic to the year that the world would see in 2020.
Now, Chastity returns with ‘Dying to Live’, a sing-along about searching for happiness at all costs.
"The song is about the feeling of not being able to live without someone, as though life won’t start again until they’re back again. The title ‘Dying to Live’ was inspired by an old ‘Zero’ skate video from 2002. The video had the best soundtrack. Nirvana, Slayer, Neil Young - it definitely helped inform my taste growing up." - Brandon Willams
