CHVRCHES have announced the details of their fourth studio album, ‘Screen Violence’.
Set for release on 27th August, the news comes alongside another new track from it, ‘How Not To Drown’.
Featuring one of the trio’s heroes, all-round musical icon Robert Smith of The Cure, you can check it out below.
Recorded mostly remotely between LA and Glasgow, ‘Screen Violence’ was originally conceived as a name for the band, before being revived for the title of their new record.
“I think for me it was helpful to go into the process with the idea that I could write something escapist almost,” Lauren Mayberry says of the album. “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.”
‘How Not To Drown’ followers the first taster of ‘Screen Violence’, ‘He Said She Said’, which dropped earlier this year.
