Chelsea Wolfe Announces New Album ‘Birth Of Violence’

Gothic/doom metal artist Chelsea Wolfe has announced her new album, Birth of Violence, out September 13th via Sargent House. Wolfe offers a preview of the upcoming LP with her new single “The Mother Road.” Listen to it below.

“I’ve been in a state of constant motion for the past eight years or so; touring, moving, playing new stages, exploring new places and meeting new people-an incredible time of learning and growing as a musician and performer,” says Wolfe. “But after awhile, I was beginning to lose a part of myself. I needed to take some time away from the road to get my head straight, to learn to take better care of myself, and to write and record as much as I can while I have ‘Mercury in my hands,’ as a wise friend put it.”

Wolfe also announced a supporting fall tour with special guest Ioanna Gika that kicks off at The Cure’s Pasadena Daydream Festival on August 30th. The trek runs through October and November concluding November 21st in Vancouver, British Columbia. Check out the dates below.
