Chastity releases video for soaring new single ‘Dying To Live’

Whitby, Ontario’s Brandon Williams has shared a video for his new single as Chastity, “Dying To Live.”

The soaring new single sees WIlliams once again leaning into his quintessential emo-tinged sound. On “Dying To Live,” Chastity sings about being unable to continue on without someone. The accompanying video is quite celebratory, following someone roller skate down the street in slow motion.

“The title ‘Dying to Live’ was inspired by an old Zero skate video from 2002,” Chastity explains. “The video had the best soundtrack. Nirvana, Slayer, Neil Young – it definitely informed my taste growing up. The song is about the feeling of not being able to live without someone, as though life won’t start again until they’re back again.”

“Dying To Live” marks Chastity’s first new music since January’s cover of Third Eye Blind’s “Losing A Whole Year.”

“Although Third Eye Blind released this song in 1997, it was somehow 2020’s theme song,” said Williams in a release. “It was rough for every single person I know… maybe it’s best that we all forget it, and just lose the whole year.”

In the meantime, he collaborated with Ellis on her track “hell.” The track sees Ellis joining forces with her partner Williams as they sing of the afterlife.
