Published Jul 24, 2013Though Chelsea Wolfe's upcoming Pain Is Beauty is said to have the musician heading "in a decidedly more electronic direction," as evidenced by synth-shimmering first single "The Warden", her latest leak, "We Hit a Wall," is full of good old-fashioned guitar gloom.
The track is driven by a melange of downcast riffs, tribal-pound tom-toms, and Wolfe's always enigmatic vocals, and has a bit of a PJ Harvey flavour to it. You can stream the moody goth-blues workout down below.
As previously reported, Pain Is Beauty drops September 3 through Sargent House. Wolfe kicks off a North American tour a week earlier, and you can check out the show specifics for the Toronto appearance and more over here.
