CHASTITY premiere “Saliva” video via NOISEY & CLASH magazine, and announce USA, CAN, and UK tour dates.

“It’s a staring contest with ignorance and it isn’t about to blink. It’s discomfort for those given no reason to feel uncomfortable in the first place. It hopes to be a getting out of the way of inherited or old ignorance. It hopes to be an opportunity for compassion, for individual and social progress and awakening. It’s two boys kissing.” ~ NOISEY (UK)

“Sometimes the simplest of acts can be the most striking.” ~ CLASH

“Chastity is the fire-breathing project of Ontario’s Brandon Williams. ~ a gigantic burst of noise worthy of instant attention. ~ Fierce would be an understatement. This is like driving a ten-tonne truck into a block of scrap metal. It’s destructive, but defined by purpose from start to finish.” ~ DIY

“scorched guitars, flailing drums and vocals that flit between desperation and becoming supremely energised.” ~ CLASH

“Nailbiter (Josh Korody of Beliefs) soundtracks your industrial nightmare on ‘Formats’ – Taking inspiration from late-’80s/early-’90s industrial (and maybe a little DJ Shadow)” ~ BROOKLYN VEGAN

“Formats is a electronic album made up of industrial darkness, skin-crawling beats, and atmospheric drones akin to Aphex Twin’s Selected Ambient Works Volume II.” ~ EXCLAIM! MAGAZINE

“close to 11 minutes in length, with the arrangement based around an insistent, fuzzy rock groove. It takes a dreamy turn a few minutes in, but the peace is interrupted when Abraham begins screaming bloody murder” ~ EXCLAIM!

“The 10-minute opus opens with clamoring drums and a methodical bass line curling up against synthesizer stutters. It’s a patient song, slowly building with layers of fuzz and locking into a groove. – It’s a powerful epic, contorting between psych meltdowns and post-rock sincerity.” ~ CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND

“And now, the motherlode. Fresh Snow have shared an enormous 11-minute monolith that comes bearing the generally amazing title “Don’t Fuck A Gift Horse In The Mouth.”” ~ STEREOGUM

“Top 10 Songs Of The Week ~ File it next to Deafheaven under “screams to cry to.”” ~ CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
