Published Jun 14, 2013Buzzed-about Scottish synth-pop outfit Chvrches recently shared a song called "Gun" from their upcoming debut album, and now they've confirmed the details of the forthcoming collection. It's called The Bones of What You Believe, and it will be out in North America on September 24 via Glassnote. The UK release will come one day earlier through Virgin/Goodbye.
Along with announcing the album, the band have shared a music video for "Gun." The glitchy, kaleidoscopic clip is a fitting accompaniment for the fast-moving, hook-filled pop banger and can be watched below.
"Gun" will be released on 12-inch pink vinyl through Virgin/Goodbye in the UK at some point in the near future. Their prior single, "The Mother We Share," will come out in North America on June 18.
Meanwhile, Chvrches will be leading up the release with extensive international touring, including some shows here in North American this month. They will play Montreal tomorrow (June 15). See the updated schedule below.
