Chastity Belt have new album, Chastity Belt will come out on September 20th via Hardly Art records, (Dude York, The Julie Ruin) and Milk! records (Courtney Barnett, Sleater Kinney) in Australia and New Zealand. Chastity Belt was co-produced by the band and Melina Duterte aka Jay Som. The band will play extensively through Europe and North America in support of the record.

Ahead of the release, the Seattle quartet has shared “Elena,” the second single from this new record, which features vocalists Lydia Lund and Julia Shapiro exchanging winsome harmonies over a bed of lush instrumentals. Bassist Annie Truscott says of the song, “Over the past year, we all read and loved Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels. We individually related to the ways in which the main character’s sense of self is inextricably linked to her desire for love and validation both from lovers and friends. The overlapping voices on top of the whimsical wave-like instrumentals captures the universal feeling of having a conversation with yourself about yourself.”
