Chastity premiere conscientious video for new song “Saliva”


Chastity, the Ontario-based band fronted by Brandon Williams, have released a video for their new track “Saliva.” You can watch it below.

The blistering new song follows hot on the heels of the band’s ennui-destroying previous cut, “Manning Hill.”

Williams tells Noisey of “Saliva”: “‘Saliva’ isn’t about skateboarding, it isn’t about fucking. It’s about conscience. Over the summer as it’s been played it’s become less and less about me, and become more about anyone who has been spat in the face by someone who may not even have the conscience to realise.”

Even better news for those of us in the UK is that Chastity will hit these shores in November for a series of live dates. Confirmed shows are as follows:

24th Nov: London, UK – Our Black Heart
25th Nov: Liverpool, UK – Maguires
26th Nov: Bristol, UK – The Stag & Hounds w/ Big Brave
28th Nov: Brighton, UK – Mutations Festival
29th Nov: Leeds, UK – Brudenell Social Club w/ Meat Wave
30th Nov: Edinburgh, UK – Sneaky Pete’s
01st Dec: Glasgow, UK – Hug & Pint
02nd Dec: Birmingham, UK – Hare & Hounds
03rd Dec: Manchester, UK – House Show

Check out the video for “Saliva” below:

Chastity release ennui-destroying new track and video ‘Manning Hill’

Chastity promo shot

Sometimes you come across a song or video that slap you upside the head with their vitality. Sometimes both land together, intertwining and complementing one another in a way that takes your breath away. Spine-tingling? The shivers? A nape-of-the-neck “moment”? Call it what you will.

Chastity’s new track and accompanying video “Manning Hill” are THAT combination. A fuzzed-up, scuzz-laden howl of a song hiding no small amount of melody, the pairing deliver a vigorous blast of energy designed to shake off suffocating suburban ennui.

Says Chastity architect and frontman Brandon Williams of the inspiration for the track: “Whitby Ontario is bleak, suburban sprawl, it’s made skids out of bored kids here. Manning Hill is the biggest hill in our town, one we’ve always skated and tried to conquer.

And of the video he adds: “I met the video director Justin Singer at bible camp a few years ago, found him on the internet in the fall to tell him about this Smashing Pumpkins inspired video I couldn’t get out of my head. Luckily he wasn’t brain washed [at Bible camp] like some of our old pals and was up to put pennies on train tracks, shave someone’s head, tattoo SORRY on our drummer Sam, run around Whitby with all of us.

“The video exceeded my hope. It’s for Whitby, and all the places like it.”

Tattoos, train tracks, buzz cuts and a sagacious blast of rock n’ roll? What’s not to like. Check out “Manning Hill” below.
