Music News - Chelsea Wolfe announces 2020 New Zealand Tour

Chelsea Wolfe announces 2020 New Zealand Tour

20 February 2020 - 0 Comments

Celebrated US gothic-rock/folk/doom-metal luminary Chelsea Wolfe has announced her first ever tour of New Zealand, scheduled for June this year.

Wolfe will tour with her four-piece band, as well as bringing along Sargent House labelmate Emma Ruth Rundle performing solo as support.

Chelsea Wolfe will perform a career-spanning set on this tour, including songs from her new album Birth of Violence released last September.

2020 will mark 10 years since her debut The Grime and The Glow was released, sparking a career that has influenced and inspired fans across continents to appreciate life in both its darkness and light.

Birth of Violence was written and recorded in solitude at home in Northern California. Following the brooding heaviness of Hiss Spun, Wolfe chose to return to her folk roots. These songs describe ‘an internal awakening of feminine energy, a connection to the maternal spirit of the Earth and a defiant stance against the destructive and controlling forces of a greedy and hostile patriarchy.’

Whilst critical reviews have been positive, it’s perhaps the feedback from her fans that best describes the power and allure of Chelsea Wolfe in its simplest form:

‘After the doomy heaviness of Hiss Spun, another acoustic record – she seriously can nail it in any style’

‘Her heavier, doomy records got me into her music, but her acoustic material is completely entrancing.’

‘I cannot believe I am lucky enough to be alive in a time where Chelsea Wolfe exists’

Chelsea Wolfe will be joined at both shows on this tour by singer songwriter Emma Ruth Rundle. Emma Ruth Rundle is revered for her powerful and evocative songwriting as much as her artistic flair and versatility. Emma has released five solo records, most recently 2018’s On Dark HorsesHer passionate live performances are renowned as much as her songcraft and Kiwi fans will finally get to experience her live performances for the first time ever this June.
