Chelsea Wolfe reveals new single + video “Be All Things” from the new album Birth Of Violence

The spellbinding new album from Chelsea Wolfe is out in just under a month and today she has given us another glimpse of her more folk leaning sound. Her new single, “Be All Things” is an emotional journey and shows Wolfe at the top of her songwriting game.  

Of the track, Chelsea Wolfe says “Be All Things” is about navigating the world as a woman: reconciling the soft and the strong, balancing the warrior and the goddess, and wanting to be everything and nothing at the same time. Telling stories through song allows me to explore so many facets of myself; so many lives within. Some days I want to be quiet and reach my roots into the earth, and some days I want to spring up from the ground and be all things.” “The video is a culmination of footage taken in a few magical locations,” says Wolfe. “Around southwestern Iceland, while shooting the Birth of Violence album cover, inside Moaning Cavern in Northern California – a marble cavern 450 feet deep that I visited as a child and sang in as an adult, sending my voice out as heavy as I could against the powerful dampness and sparkles of the ancient cave walls. A special spot in nature not far from my home where the Manzanita grows up like a red and green tunnel, and a historic California hotel from the Victorian era where many from the past rested their heads.


Wolfe will be embarking on an extensive, acoustic North American tour this Autumn starting with a special performance at Pasadena Daydream Festival with her full band. All tour dates are listed below. Birth Of Violence is out September 13th on Sargent House.

Early Praise for Birth Of Violence

“Her new sound may be folksier than her earlier, heavy metal-inspired work, but it’s no less goth.” – Rolling Stone 

“[Chelsea Wolfe] wanders a desolate, genre-fluid land where goth, metal, folk and post-rock mingle…” – LA Times 

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 

“[“The Mother Road”] is a detour from the more haunting atmospheres Chelsea Wolfe typically channels, embracing a cold minimalist approach that layers on the intensity as it unfolds.” – Loudwire 

“[“The Mother Road” is] a gorgeously stirring meditation on epiphanies and transformations…” – Revolver 

“One listen to album opener and lead single “The Mother Road” should quell any fears she’s dropped her expansive sound. It’s an ode to Americana’s most familiar ribbon of highway—Route 66—and starts humbly enough, her folky inspirations apparent in guitar strums. The track slowly unfurls into a call to arms, ending with booming drums and gothic strings. ” – Paste 

“A bass drum pounds behind Wolfe as she sings about a much-needed wake up call, her voice growing in strength and tremor as the track progresses. Eventually, violins drone behind her in a creepy key. [“The Mother Road” is] simultaneously unnerving and soothing. – Consequence of Sound 

“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 

“[“The Mother Road”] starts off bare-bones, but evolves into something much bigger-sounding. It’s great stuff…” – Brooklyn Vegan 

“…for “The Mother Road,” [Chelsea Wolfe] reinvents herself once again as a doom-folk earth goddess… the music itself, which opens with isolated vocals and strummed acoustic guitar à la PJ Harvey before a chorus of pounding drums and luminous cymbals rolls in like a thunderstorm, punctuated by jolts of feedback-laden guitar literally crackling with electricity. While the music technically errs on the acoustic side, there’s nothing soft about Wolfe’s terrible and awe-inspiring invocation.” – A.V. Club
