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”.
WATCH CHELSEA WOLFE "HYPNOS" - VIDEO
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.

Shura has announced details of her much-anticipated debut album, ‘Nothing’s Real’, which will be released on Polydor Records on July 8th. The album is available to pre-order today, with ‘The Space Tapes’ (a psychedelic rework of some of the record’s highlights, laid down straight to tape) among the tracks available instantly.
Having surpassed 30 million plays and become one of the most enduring blog successes of recent years, new single ‘Touch’ has also been made Track of the Day at Radio 1 from today. After teaming up with the legendary Talib Kweli on an alternative version, a brand new Four Tet remix of ‘Touch’ is additionally available to stream now. Shura will open for Chvrches around Europe later this month before playing a homecoming headline show at Shepherds Bush Empire on May 26th: further headline dates and festival appearances will follow (with the likes of Primavera, End of the Road, Parklife and a main slot at Great Escape already announced).
In many ways ‘Nothing's Real’ is the perfect title for Shura's debut album, which mixes the personal and the fantastical to beguiling, immersive effect. It features songs written and painstakingly recorded across two years in her Shepherds Bush bedroom - the site of which is blown up on the album’s striking artwork – but also reaches back further than that: into parents, childhood, past relationships and the possibilities of the future. All threaded together across the album’s often-affecting narrative, the record assimilates everything Shura loves – from early Madonna to Sci-fi, and War on Drugs to gaming – but is also the sound of an artist pushing themselves hard, further into the unknown. A phrase coined after a breakup, ‘Nothing’s Real’ confirms Shura as an important artist for the years ahead. Welcome – as the record was almost called – to her Shuniverse.

With the commanding presence of Skarlett at the helm, her powerful and incredibly versatile voice defines Skarlett Riot’s sound and ensures they remain a cut above the rest.
Musically the band are exploring a heavier avenue than before; taut guitar lines bolstered by clattering drums but all the while remembering the hooks and melodies that seen this band grow into one of the UK’s finest young bands.
Courage My Love are heading out on their first UK/European tour starting in May. The headline trek will feature support from Over.
Front woman Mercedes Arn-Horn says, "We're so excited and proud to be heading out on our first ever UK / European tour! This is something we've been trying to make happen for years now. Our fans over there have been so patient and supportive, we can't wait to finally come to them and thank them all in person. See you out on the road!”
The band's latest effort 'Becoming', was re-issued last spring as a full LP with 6 additional tracks via InVogue Records.
Since being discovered in a local battle of the bands contest, Courage My Love have since cut their teeth and built their audience with fiery live performances. Alternative Press Magazine pegged Courage My Love as one of the top '100 Bands You Need to Know’. In 2014, the band was nominated for a JUNO award for 'Breakthrough Group of the Year’ and played the full 2014 Vans Warped Tour. In 2015 the band served as support on Hawthorne Heights' ‘Stripped Down To The Bone’ acoustic tour.
The trio is putting the finishing touches on their next album which will released later this year on InVogue Records.
