CHELSEA WOLFE SHARES NEW VIDEO FOR HYPNOS;
SARGENT HOUSE TO RELEASE HYPNOS/FLAME 7″ – 1ST APRIL
Chelsea Wolfe recently announced the release of the Hypnos/Flame 7” – April 1st via Sargent House, b-sides from her most recent album Abyss. Today we can share a haunting new video for “Hypnos”.
The video features Wolfe draped in serpents, fading between fleeting moments of clarity and pixelated visual noise. Hypnos was the Greek god of sleep, and this video translates Wolfe’s distorted love song of the same name into a stark, black-and-white hallucination. The video was self-directed by Wolfe, shot and edited by Ben Chisholm with additional camera by Ricky Verrett.
“Hypnos” and “Flame” are both spare and haunting; even at her quietest Wolfe’s music is full of tension and fierceness. “Hypnos” is available to listen and share now via the Sargent House soundcloud. The two songs are available on a special deluxe version of Abyss, available digitally April 1st, which will also feature demo versions of album tracks “Grey Days,” “Simple Death,” and “Survive. Pre-order is available for the 7” via Sargent House, and digitally via iTunes.
Chelsea Wolfe has added more cities to her North American tour where she will be performing with full band playing material from Abyss as well as her older releases including Apokalypsis and more. Joining her on all dates will be new labelmates A Dead Forest Index, who are supporting their debut In All That Drifts From Summit Down coming out via Sargent House on April 29th.
