Seattle’s Chastity Belt have unveiled their choice of supports in each city ahead of their debut Australian tour beginning in late September.

You can see who will join them a bit further down. Tickets are available now, and the selling fast warning is up for the Melbourne show.

As the story goes, the four-piece who formed in a small college town in Eastern Washington arrived at a frat party, flipped over a ping-pong table, screamed “Chastity Belt” and threw together a one-song punk act that won them a battle of the bands competition, naturally turning them into musicians.

The band released their debut album, ‘No Regerts‘, in 2013 with notably titled tracks, ‘Giant Vagina‘ and ‘Pussy, Weed, Beer‘ and caught the attention of cult-label, Hardly Art who released their second album, ‘Time To Go Home‘ in 2015.

While reclaiming language historically used against women, lead vocalist, Julia, who also fronts Seattle punk band, Childbirth, is constantly entertaining. Her endlessly quotable lyrics of boredom, going out, getting laid and more importantly, gender inequality is built on a foundation of post-post-punk energy, jagged rhythms and instrumental moves that couldn’t be anyone else’s.

Their live shows have taken them on tour to Europe twice, earned them the support slot on one of Courtney Barnett’s multiple US tours, seen them share stages with Wire, Death Cab For Cutie and Protomartyr as well as gracing festival line ups including Sasquatch, Sled Island, The Great Escape and NXNE.

With a new album on the horizon, (they’ve just completed recording), the four-piece will charm their Australian audience with a sturdy back catalogue of impressive material taken from ‘Time To Go Home‘ & ‘No Regerts‘, while also providing a taste of what’s about to come from their much anticipated forthcoming album.
