Chastity Belt is a rock band consisting of four friends — guitarists Julia Shapiro and Lydia Lund, bassist Annie Truscott, and drummer Gretchen Grimm. They met in a tiny college town in Eastern Washington, but their story begins for real in Seattle, that celebrated home of Macklemore and the Twelfth Man. Following a post-grad summer apart, a handful of shows and enthusiastic responses from the city’s DIY community led them, as it has countless others, into a cramped practice space. They emerged with a debut album, No Regrets, sold it out faster than anyone involved thought possible, and toured America, a country that embraced them with open-ish arms.
Now they’re back and the tab is settled, the lights are out, the birds are making noise even though the sun isn’t really up yet: it’s Time to Go Home is their second long-play and first for Hardly Art. Their third album, I Used to Spend So Much Time Alone, releases June 2, 2017.
Sneaks and Pony, the fun-loving Toronto garage-pop band by Sam Bielanski, Cristina Nacarrato, and Matt Sandrin, that would “play on a high school roof at the end of a ’90s teen movie,” open for Chastity Belt at The Great Hall in Toronto.
