Chelsea Wolfe has debuted her latest music video “Deranged For Rock & Roll,” the latest single featured on her upcoming album Birth of Violence. The new project will be released on September 13th via Sargent House Records.
This music video shows the performer in an abandoned dive bar, located across a road that looks deserted. Wolfe’s somber vocals are complemented by the dark instrumentals, showing a deeper, darker and more personal side of Wolfe.
“‘Deranged for Rock & Roll’ is my love song to music. Every time I ever tried to walk a different path, music always called me back home to it. It’s in my blood; it’s my one source of true peace. I love its chaos and its rough edges, and I love the way it can bring understanding and comfort. I belong to music, and it to me,” Wolfe explained in a press release. “I feel Gilbert’s video illustrates that unnamed pull towards something so well. My character is destined to sing the same song over and over in this purgatory of a desert bar, while different people come through the town and begin to feel the pull as well, drawing them into this vortex to stay for good.”
The music video director director Gilbert Trejo explained:
“From the beginning we knew this video took place outside of society. The melody invokes compulsion, a certain type of purgatory, the inability to just buckle down and fly the straight path. Everyone’s purgatory exists side by side, and we affect one another without ever knowing.”
Earlier this year the performer released another single which will be featured on the album entitled, “Be All Things.” While Wolfe is currently planning a fully acoustic tour, in support of the album, the performer played an electric set with a full band last week at Pasadena Daydream.
