CHELSEA WOLFE REVEALS A NEW SONG & VIDEO “DERANGED FOR ROCK & ROLL”  BIRTH OF VIOLENCE OUT SEPTEMBER 13TH ON SARGENT HOUSE   

Watch “Deranged For Rock & Roll” Here

After a spellbinding performance at The Cure’s Pasadena Daydream Festival this past weekend in LA, Chelsea Wolfe is just one week away from releasing her latest album Birth Of Violence via Sargent House on September 13th. 

Birth of Violence is a return to the reclusive nature of her earlier recordings where we see Wolfe withdraw into her own world of enigmatic and elusive autobiography. But the album also exists in the present, addressing modern tragedies such as school shootings and the poisoning of the planet. 

On the song Wolfe tells us “Deranged for Rock & Roll” is my love song to music. Every time I ever tried to walk a different path, music always called me back home to it. It’s in my blood; it’s my one source of true peace. I love its chaos and its rough edges, and I love the way it can bring understanding and comfort. I belong to music, and it to me. I feel Gilbert’s video illustrates that unnamed pull towards something so well. My character is destined to sing the same song over and over in this purgatory of a desert bar, while different people come through the town and begin to feel the pull as well, drawing them into this vortex to stay for good.” 

Video director Gilbert Trejo (Pixies, DIIV) says “From the beginning we knew this video took place outside of society. The melody invokes compulsion, a certain type of purgatory, the inability to just buckle down and fly the straight path. Everyone’s purgatory exists side by side, and we affect one another without ever knowing.” Wolfe will be embarking on a major North American tour this Autumn, stripping back the live show to perform her new songs (and old) in a more intimate light. All dates are listed below.

 Early press for Birth Of Violence

“Wolfe might have dialled down the industrial leanings on her sixth LP, but her heavy, heady sound is no less dramatic…Wolfe layers the sorrow with a compelling sense of urgency.” – 4* Q magazine

“The result is an album that displays Wolfe’s versatility and ability to stir power from whispers as easily as she does howls.” – Uncut 

“Chelsea Wolfe has become one of the most influential artists of this century…Throughout it all, though much more subtly, the horrors and anxieties of Abyss or Pain Is Beauty are also here, ever-present monsters lurking in the shadows, an integral part of the human condition that Chelsea Wolfe is able to turn into aching, timeless musical beauty.” – Zero Tolerance

“Chelsea Wolfe is a singer-songwriter as distinctive as she is compelling — her sound is folk music that carries the stench of sulfur, like it was written on a guitar made from the wood of a tree struck by lightning.” – The FADER

…Wolfe has composed a masterpiece. “ – LA Weekly 

“Sounding like she’s been sequestered on a mountain top with nothing but books on witchcraft and a handful of Joni Mitchell records (reflecting her actual retreat into the woods to work on new material), the singer/songwriter flexes her emotional and musical growth on this gorgeous, introspective cut.” – Revolver 

“Ominous…this only goes to prove that Wolfe is still very much evolving as an artist and nailing it every step of the way.” – Metal Injection 

“While the music technically errs on the acoustic side, there’s nothing soft about Wolfe’s terrible and awe-inspiring invocation.” – A.V. Club
