CHELSEA WOLFE RELEASES OFFICIAL "CARRION FLOWERS" VIDEO


Chelsea Wolfe has released the stark black and white video for newest single, “Carrion Flowers,” directed by Wolfe herself and bandmate Ben Chisholm, with all editing by Chisholm. Shot in California and New York state, Wolfe shares,

 “The visuals in the video allude to the drought in California and frustration about corporations being allowed to pump out all the water, destroying environments and communities, just to sell it back. While writing Abyss, I lived near where the water is piped into Los Angeles, but the lakes were dried up and the mountains were burned from fires. During filming we were exploring cracked lake beds and washed out roads - at one point I was laying in the middle of an abandoned canyon road with no chance of a car coming, and it was very surreal and quiet. I closed my eyes for a moment and when I opened them there were vultures circling overhead like I was some exotic roadkill, so we filmed them too.

 The scribbles and ropes in the video are about my own madness and self-doubt, and costume designer Jenni Hensler made me a human cocoon from this insane fabric - it represents a feeling of claustrophobia, like you just want to scratch your way out of it. And there is anger in this song; it’s got a sense of revenge for anyone who has suffered or died because of injustice."

GOBLIN REBIRTH REVEALS NEW TRACK "BOOK OF SKULLS"


Relapse Records is excited to share "Book of Skulls" from Goblin Rebirth's upcoming self-titled album (due June 29, 2015). The group has also revealed an album trailer to give fans a taste of what to expect of the record, which is available below.



Inspired by the legendary Goblin, the 1970's horror-synth / film score icons responsible for such soundtracks as Suspiria, Zombi and Tenebre, Goblin Rebirth came together after a temporary reformation of the original group in 2009. The new incarnation of the group contains the famed rhythm section of the original Goblin (drummer Agostino Marangolo and bassist Fabio Pignatelli, who both played on the classic soundtracks to Zombi/Dawn of the Dead, Suspria, Profondo Rosso/Deep Red and more), with the addition of Aidan Zammit and Danilo Cherni on keyboards and Giacomo Anselmi on guitar.

CHELSEA WOLFE RELEASES NEW SINGLE, “CARRION FLOWERS”, ABYSS LP OUT AUGUST 7TH

Chelsea Wolfe is set to release her newest full length album, Abyss, August 7th on Sargent House, and she is excited to share the dramatic single, “Carrion Flowers.” Symbolising the type of flower that smells of rotting flesh and thematically touching on the feeling of revenge for anyone who has unjustly suffered, it features Wolfe’s hypnotic vocals laid over disorienting, industrial thuds.

Chelsea Wolfe is also proud to announce her headlining North American tour in support of Abyss, which kicks off at the end of August and goes through October, with all dates below and more to come.

Sleep paralysis plagues singer/songwriter Chelsea Wolfe, and that strange intersection of the conscious and the unconscious has inadvertently manifested itself within her work. Across the span of her first four albums, there is an underlying tension, a distorted and nebulous territory where dark shadows hover along the edges of the sublime and the graceful. But until now, Wolfe’s trials and tribulations with the boundaries between dreams and reality have only been a subconscious influence on her work. With her fifth album, Abyss, she deliberately confronts those boundaries and crafts a score to that realm she describes as the “hazy afterlife . . . an inverted thunderstorm . . . the dark backward . . . the abyss of time.”
