Chelsea Wolfe: Deranged for Rock & Roll

Right after her appearance at The Cure’s Pasadena Daydream Festival, and only a week before the release of her anticipated new album, Birth Of Violence, Chelsea Wolfe unveils a fourth track off it, matched to a bewitching visual, full of beautiful colors and dark Americana superiority, directed by Gilbert Trejo (Pixies, DIIV).

Just like its title suggests, Deranged for Rock & Roll is an elegiac and very much heartfelt homage to the greatest thing that happened to humanity in the last seventy years.

"Deranged for Rock & Roll is my love song to music," Chelsea says of the new song. "Every time I ever tried to walk a different path, music always called me back home to it. It’s in my blood; it’s my one source of true peace. I love its chaos and its rough edges, and I love the way it can bring understanding and comfort. I belong to music, and it to me. I feel Gilbert’s video illustrates that unnamed pull towards something so well. My character is destined to sing the same song over and over in this purgatory of a desert bar, while different people come through the town and begin to feel the pull as well, drawing them into this vortex to stay for good."

"From the beginning we knew this video took place outside of society," the video's director comments. "The melody invokes compulsion, a certain type of purgatory, the inability to just buckle down and fly the straight path. Everyone’s purgatory exists side by side, and we affect one another without ever knowing."

Birth Of Violence comes out September 13th, 2019 via Sargent House.
