Chelsea Wolfe is preparing to release her debut LP Apokalypsis via Pendu Sound on August 23rd, the follow-up to her impressive The Grime & The Glow which dropped last year. Stream "Mer" from said release below.

After a string of dates overseas, Chelsea Wolfe will make her NYC debut on August 17th at Saint Vitus (1120 Manhattan Ave in Brooklyn). Brooklynvegan is proud to present this rare East Coast show, with Cult of Youth and Planning for Burial also on the bill. Robin C of Tri Angle Records will DJ. $8 will get you in the door. Tickets are on sale.

Cult of Youth is also scheduled to play Bowery Ballroom this weekend (August 6th) with Cold Cave and Austra as part of Cold Cave's larger US tour. Tickets are still available.

Planning for Burial will hit the West Coast in September, bringing along with them a demo cassette entitled Late Twenties Blues. Pick up a copy at Saint Vitus, and look for a full-length in the months ahead.

Chelsea recently played some West Coast dates with Liturgy. A few pictures from her LA show at The Echo are in this post. More of those, all tour dates and a teaser video for Apokalypsis , below...

i remember when she was just a gal in a female creed cover band

Thats a rather boastful bio and she's name dropping right wing Ayn Rand who was friends with Alan Greenspan.

Her bio on her web page:
Her music is a raw, dirging doom-folk with hints of black metal, deep blues and minimal synthesizer music, but it’s as prone to triumph as it is despair. Her voice is both haunting and seemingly haunted, though whether by angels or demons is unclear. And her lyrics reflect an obsession not only with life’s murkier moments, but the unlikely truths and beauty they so often reveal. It makes sense then that her influences run from Nick Cave, Vladimir Vysotsky and Selda Bagcan to Ayn Rand and Ingmar Bergman, and even more so that she hails from the wilder, woodsy northern part of her state.

Thought it said Chelsea Handler there who interestingly enough, I'd like to know the BV consensus on.

I was on board until she said she was influenced by Ayn Rand.

Fuck Ayn rand - she made it OK for people to think that fucking everybody else over to get ahead was part of darwinian "natural selection" in a free market economy, and that helping out you fellow man, especially those who need it most, was a weakness that the super rich and powerful need not adhere too. Anyone who lists her ideas as an influence can fuck the fuck off and suck 1o,000 dirty dicks consecutively.

Screw all this Ayn Rand talk. This chick was able to resurrect Bruce Lee in order to play drums for her. Now that's some real voodoo shit!

Achievement of hummus is the only moral purpose of your life, and that hummus, not pain or mindless self-indulgence, is the proof of your moral integrity, since it is the proof and the result of your loyalty to the achievement of your values.

-Ayn Rand

I didn't realize Muslimrock was already infiltrating NYC.
