Sludge Factory Australia: An Interview with Chelsea Wolfe about Upcoming Oz Tour



The intensity we’ve come to admire in CHELSEA WOLFE’s music could not be further removed when it comes to this musical goddess engaging in conversation with Robyn Morrison about her upcoming Australian tour.  She’s softly spoken, humble and seemingly reserved. But maybe that’s because her music speaks volumes and there’s no need for a bombastic approach to getting her point across.

At the time of chatting to Wolfe, she explained that she was in the process of mixing the next album. “A couple of months ago we recorded the full-band album. It’s full of electronic songs, rock ‘n’ roll songs and some acoustic songs.  We’re hoping to have it done by the end of the year.”

But before getting into the details of the next release, CHELSEA WOLFE’s just released a full acoustic album titled, ‘Unknown Rooms: A Collection of Acoustic Songs’.  She talks more about this release. “It originally started as an idea to take a lot of the old recordings and videos of songs that I’d never previously released and make them into a collection. As I was collecting those recordings, I started to write new acoustic songs. The album also has re-recordings of some older songs.”

Wolfe continues to explain her songwriting process. “I’m writing lyrics all the time,” she says. “I’m inspired by love or nature.” 

Wolfe performed at the legendary Roadburn Festival this year.  She shares some of those highlights. “We really had a great time. I didn’t expect anyone to be watching us but we had a room full of people. It was a really special experience.”

Looking towards the Australian tour, Wolfe explains there will be a range of songs to digest in their live set. “There will be songs from the very first album, most from the last full-band album and then one or two songs from the latest album. We’ve got two shows in Melbourne. One is an acoustic show and one a full band show.”
