The prolific Chelsea Wolfe has revealed that she'll be releasing a new album called Birth of Violence on September 13th through Sargent House. The origins of the new set saw her returning to solitude to find inspiration to create the songs that would become the record. "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," confides Wolfe.

The fruits of this hiding away can certainly be heard in new single 'The Mother Road', which begins as a sparse acoustic-and-voice song, soon joined by foreboding drums - although with a voice as dynamic as Wolfe's it never sounds sparse. In this solitude she examines a relationship in cold detail, admitting "I guess I needed someone to shake me up/ it was you." The expected sweep of instrumentation takes hold in the second half of 'The Mother Road', with cutting strings and muscular guitars exploding the scope of 'The Mother Road' to breathtaking heights, Wolfe's singular voice leading the charge.

Chelsea Wolfe's new album Birth of Violence is out September 13th.
