CHELSEA WOLFE ACOUSTIC TOUR

Chelsea Wolfe will head across the country this winter on a headlining tour in support of her newest release Unknown Rooms: A Collection of Acoustic Songs. The tour will bring an intimate acoustic show, featuring Ben Chisholm on analog synths, piano & bass, with violinist Andrea Calderon accompanying as well. Wolfe will be playing reworked versions of older songs and a few covers in addition to the songs on the Acoustic album in her sets each night. Support on most of the shows will be neo-folk artist King Dude, who will also be performing an acoustic set. Below watch Chelsea Wolfe’s cover or Sibylle Baier’s track “The End” filmed recently as part of a new Sargent House Glassroom Session.

CHELSEA TALKS TO BRANDON STOSUY ABOUT THE NEW ACOUSTIC ALBUM & MORE

“Wolfe’s next offering, the nine-song Unknown Rooms: A Collection of Acoustic Songs– out October 16 on Sargent House– is her clearest emergence from the veil and shadows that obscured her earlier work. (Listen to the brand new track “Flatlands” above.) As the album’s subtitle promises, it’s stark, but also in tune with her gothic sound; she’s accompanied by viola, violin, piano, analog synths. And her voice still conjures warped mirrors and molten candle wax, even when unaccompanied. I caught up with Wolfe via telephone to discuss the new record, a forthcoming full-band album, D.H. Lawrence, and being an outcast.”

He’s one of the rare ones.. the ones that look the darkness of reality in the eye.. the ones that can sum up what you already knew, or already felt, in such eloquent words that it fucks with your emotions. When you hear him yell, “play from your fucking heart!” it’s the only thing that matters, and you want to go point a gun at your head onstage to honor that. -Chelsea Wolfe
