Fans of metal, folk, electronic, and just plain good music are drawn to Chelsea Wolfe. Her charisma and songwriting skills are matched by none, and we’re extremely excited about her newest song, “The Mother Road” from her just-announced new album, Birth of Violence, out September 13 on Sargent House.

Birth of Violence touches upon tradition, but it also exists in the present, addressing modern tragedies such as school shootings and the poisoning of the planet,” Wolfe’s press release explains. “But the record is at its most poignant when Wolfe withdraws into her own world of enigmatic and elusive autobiography. The songs describe an internal awakening of feminine energy, a connection to the maternal spirit of the Earth, and a defiant stance against the destructive and controlling forces of a greedy and hostile patriarchy. Though the lyrical minutiae remain secret, the overall power of the language and delivery is bound to haunt the listener with both its grace and tension. In keeping with the general approach of the album, it thrives by culling from the familiar language of American country and folk music while setting it within longtime musical collaborator Ben Chisholm’s scenic soundscapes.”

She’s also going on a very special acoustic U.S. tour soon.
