Chelsea Wolfe returns with her sixth full-length album titled, Birth of Violence, which is the follow-up to 2017's Hiss Spun. Birth of Violence was written and recorded in solitude at home in Northern California. Wolfe chose to return to her folk routes without going full-blown acoustic, as she did in her 2012 album Unknown Rooms. According to a press release, these 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.” She adds, "“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,” she says in a press release. “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.”
Birth of Violence is scheduled for a September 13th release via Sargent House.
