Chelsea Wolfe Details 'Abyss,' Shares New Song
Published Apr 28, 2015Gloomy folk-metal songwriter Chelsea Wolfe teased a new LP called Abyss last week with promises that it would arrive this summer. Now, she has fleshed out the album details and confirmed that it will drop on August 7 through Sargent House.
The album was produced by John Congleton (David Byrne, St. Vincent, Cloud Nothings) in Dallas. In statement, Wolfe had this to say of the new record: "Abyss is meant to have the feeling of when you're dreaming, and you briefly wake up, but then fall back asleep into the same dream, diving quickly into your own subconscious."
She further described it as a "score" to "the hazy afterlife… an inverted thunderstorm… the dark backward… the abyss of time."
