Chvrches announce new album 'Screen Violence'
Following up the release of their brilliant 2018 LP 'Love Is Dead', Chvrches have now announced their plans for their next studio album 'Screen Violence', arriving on the 27th August via EMI Records.
The new full-length will include the previously shared track 'He Said She Said', and is being previewed by the new lead single 'How Not To Drown', which features additional vocals from Robert Smith of The Cure.
Speaking about the new album, frontwoman Lauren Mayberry said, “I think for me it was helpful to go into the process with the idea that I could write something escapist almost. That felt freeing initially, to have concepts and stories to weave your own feelings and experiences through but in the end, all the lyrics were definitely still personal.”
While Martin Doherty adds, “To me, the screen aspect was a bit more literal. When we were making the record, it was like half of our lives were lived through screens. What began as a concept was now a lifeline.”
