Chelsea Wolfe releases The Waves Have Come, Starts European Tour on July 25th
Earlier this year, Chelsea Wolfe shared an intense video for her Pain Is Beauty track "Feral Love", which was an excerpt from a 52-minute film called Lone. Wolfe co-wrote the film with director Mark Pellington, who did Pearl Jam’s iconic “Jeremy” video and clips for Michael Jackson, Nine Inch Nails, U2, and others, plus the films Arlington Road, The Mothman Prophecies, and more.
In a statement, Wolfe said of the video:
“Most of this video is footage from the first time Mark and I shot together—he had built this dark room full of green ivy and it was just me, the dress from the album cover, a few lights, and him. It was the first time I realized what a director really is. Suddenly he was shouting, guiding me with instructions, emotions, telling me to act as if everything I was singing about—disaster and the loss of life and love—that it was all inside of me and at the same time to act as an observer of these things. He cut it together with found footage of families, intense nature and destruction and created this cathartic journey through it all.”

Terrorizer speaks with Chelsea Wolfe
The inimitable Chelsea Wolfe has just finished her recent US tour, so this seemed like the perfect time for Terrorizer to catch up with her. We sent Joy Shannon to quiz Chelsea on her creative process, overcoming stagefright, her collaboration with King Dude and what we can expect from her new film, ‘Lone’…
An absolute hush goes over the crowd when Chelsea Wolfe stands on stage. Her presence is otherworldly and when she sings, it seems as if even the ghosts in the rafters of the old theatre stop and listen.
Terrorizer caught Wolfe on her last US tour date in Los Angeles at the Orpheum Theatre opening for the Eels, right before she embarked on a Canadian and European tour. This was a unique tour for Wolfe, which she crafted to be a stripped-down acoustic experience, accompanied only with by her co-producer Ben Chisholm & violinist and backing vocalist Andrea Calderon. The trio created devastatingly gorgeous melodies and vocal harmonies, which didn’t shy away from moments of bold, bleak minimalism. Much of the set was played on a very darkly lit stage, transforming the spiralling Baroque architecture of LA’s Orpheum Theatre into a shadowed cave, out of which Wolfe’s voice howled.

SLED ISLAND 2014: CHELSEA WOLFE
CHANNELING ANGER AND CONFUSION INTO SOMETHING CREATIVE
When listening to the macabre melodies of Chelsea Wolfe, one might not immediately jump on comparisons to country and western tunes, but as a songwriter, Wolfe believes a lot of the pain and longing for which she’s renowned to spill on her records is due to the old country crooners she listened to growing up.
“Old country is so honest, simple and emotional,” she says. “Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Tammy Wynette, Patsy Cline. Honesty is what drew me to playing music in the first place.”
Indeed, honesty is something that Wolfe has in spades. Her sprawling albums of dark, droning and silky songs are riddled with personal anguish and a palpable honesty that makes your spine tingle. There’s also Unknown Rooms, the collection of acoustic songs she released back in 2012 that shed a bit more light on her folkier side, a side that Wolfe says she’d love to return to at some point.
Chelsea Wolfe named in LA Weekly’s 10 Best Young L.A. Singer Songwriters
Chelsea Wolfe has a super power - she can destroy and rebuild your entire emotional constitution in the space of a single song. Her ice-like voice slices through scary seas of reverb, with cryptic lyrics as splintered life rafts of hope. A half decade into her career, Wolfe has already handled horror-noise (2011’s Apokalypsis), dark folk (2012’s Unknown Rooms) and ghost-industrial dance music (last year’s Pain is Beauty), to devastating effect. -Cristina Black (LA Weekly) See full list here
Chelsea Wolfe is on tour now- see all dates here - She will be playing in LA on June 11th at The Orpheum Theater.
Seattle’s The Stranger: Deep In The Wander an Interview with Chelsea Wolfe
Last month, LA-based folk metal chanteuse, Chelsea Wolfe, made her film debut with the release of Lone, an hour-long short film that bridges the divide between music video and short film. The surrealist/expressionist flick was directed by Mark Pellington, best known for directing Pearl Jam’s music video for “Jeremy” as well as videos for Nine Inch Nails, Foo Fighters, INXS, and Michael Jackson, and a handful of feature length films. Utilizing tracks from Wolfe’s 2013 record, Pain Is Beauty, the film visually explores the themes introduced on this album, which according to Pellington are “nature, sexuality, memory, mortality, forgiveness, love, innocence, fragility, violence, and beauty.”
Currently the film is not available to stream online, but curious fans can buy a USB key either online or at the Chelsea Wolfe merch booth. Currently on tour with Eels, Wolfe will be in Seattle this Saturday night playing an acoustic set at the Moore. I caught up with Wolfe on Monday night to learn more about Lone and her recent experiences on this spring tour.
La Blogotheque Une Conversation avec Chelsea Wolfe (en Francais)
On le pressentait depuis sa récente signature chez Sargent House, il faut se rendre maintenant à l’évidence : celle qui reprenait Burzum dans son coin est devenue une véritable icône en l’espace de quatre albums. Sans jamais tomber dans le compromis, la musicienne de Sacramento a pourtant réussi la prouesse de mettre d’accord indie-rockers et chantres de l’underground, qu’on pensait encore irréconciliables il y a peu. Si Pain Is Beauty, le dernier album en date, parait plus accessible de prime abord, le mystère qui auréole le personnage reste quant à lui intact. On a cherché à en savoir plus, on s’est retrouvés à discuter de chiffons, de bravoure et de Wardruna.
The Interview Magazine Interview: Chelsea Wolfe
September 2013 marked the release of Sacramento native Chelsea Wolfe's fourth studio album, Pain Is Beauty. The album, widely considered her best to date, lives up to its name: Gorgeously introspective and alluringly moody, the gothic rocker’s heady distortions and droning production emote as effectively as her astute lyricism. Wolfe has compared the album’s narrative to that of a forest fire. Despite the destruction of trying times, such tribulations ultimately allow for personal growth.
Such emotionally complex work allows for a slew of interpretations, which is where Wolfe has shone brightest in 2014. Lone, an experimental short film by filmmaker Mark Pellington, acts as a surreal adaptation of Pain Is Beauty and was just released in full last month. The singer is also mid-tour with Eels; she’s playing an exclusively acoustic set. The tour comes through New York this Sunday at the historic Apollo Theater. Wolfe had a lot to say about translating her work to such diverse mediums, working with Pellington, and prepping for summer excursions through Europe.
Chelsea Wolfe Mixtape for the Sled Island Edition of Under the Radar Magazine
In less than a month, Under the Radar is headed to Canada to check out the Sled Island Festival. As per our tradition, we’ll be running mixtapes from some of the artists performing at the festival. The first in our series is from singer/songwriter Chelsea Wolfe. She gave the Broadcast, Fka Twigs, and Fuck Buttons-featuring mix the ambitious title, FLYING IS A TIMELESS LIMBO AFTER WHICH A NEW REALITY IS CREATED. Says Wolfe, her song choices were inspired by “tour & travel / the forest & the field / the hotels & the wheels / the task & the insanity / the beauty in the chaos / never sleep.”
Chelsea Wolfe Mixtape:
BEAK “I KNOW”
ZOMBY “DIGITAL FAUNA”
FKA TWIGS “HOW’S THAT”
FUCK BUTTONS “THE RED WING”
GORGOROTH “OF ICE AND MOVEMENT”
KATASTROPHY WIFE “SWEETHEART”
