Published Jul 10, 2018Chastity will release their debut album Death Lust later this week, and they're teasing its arrival with a video for album cut "Heaven Hell Anywhere Else."
"'Heaven Hell Anywhere Else' is the most death-dreaming song on the record," band leader Brandon Williams tells Exclaim! "I've been reading about how chemical our pleasure and happiness is — the feeling of pleasure just being dopamine, happiness serotonin… I'm talking about imbalance of these things and feeling caught on the other side as though a God, someone or something, may be culpable. But, maybe it's just these chemicals that hold that massive power over us."
The dark subject matter of the song is paired with equally grim visuals. A group of young people carry out the same anti-cop sentiments we saw in the "Children" video, then spend the night out at a carnival.
Watch the video for "Heaven Hell Anywhere Else" below, where you will also find the band's upcoming tour dates.
As previously reported, Death Lust is due out July 13 via Captured Tracks/Royal Mountain Records.
