Crywank + Chastity

August 30 @ 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM $15.00 – $18.00


Crywank was started in Manchester in 2009 by Jay Clayton as a solo project despite having no previous experience playing guitar. The project started the night Clayton learned their first two chords and wrote the songs (Welcome to Castle Irwell and Thomas Saunders Gang Chant). Lyrically focusing on the end of their first relationship and music heavily influenced by American folk punk and anti-folk, their first album ‘James is Going To Die Soon’ became a cult favorite on the internet, both for its charm and many flaws. Crywank has since self-released eight records. Despite being self-managed, unsigned, and their name getting in the way of radio play or press coverage, Crywank has had over 100 million streams and has toured internationally. In July 2020, Crywank announced they would break up following a world tour, but this was cut short after five continents due to the Covid-19 pandemic. After two years of hiatus and an impromptu solo album following a housefire, Crywank is back performing live again, both as a solo project and a full band.

Chastity started as a way for lead Brian Williams to find community in his suffocating and isolating suburban life, his songs serving as an outstretched hand for the like-minded people on the fringes. The long-lead single “Dying to Live,” encapsulates this ethos when Williams sings, “Another sick person just trying to get well / You, me, everyone I know.” Like all of his music, this song comes from his hometown, in these places graffitied with memories for him: pain, loss, grief, but ultimately acceptance. “We’ve all been sick this last year and a half: Everyone I know is feeling fucked,” said Williams. “We survive through each other, through being close with each other and finding community and a sense of purpose in our friendships.” Suffer Summer, written mostly in 2019 and then recorded in 2020, is both a validation and comfort that while the world might be irrevocably fucked, you’re not alone.
